DALLAS - Dallas’ tallest skyscraper, Bank of America Plaza on Main St., is undergoing a major renovation.

Renovation plans include a new drive-up entry and parking at the corner of Main and Griffin streets, as well as a rebuild of the lower levels. Contractors have removed miles of argon-filled light tubes on the outside of the 28-year-old building.

The familiar green lights that outline Bank of America Plaza are being replaced with LED illumination.

Tenants in the 72-story building say the entire renovation could cost as much as $20 million. The owner of Bank of America Plaza — Metropolis Investment Holdings of Chicago — isn’t talking to the media about the makeover.

Bank of America Plaza’s first significant redo in almost 30 years is designed to keep businesses in the building happy. The tower is currently about 80 percent leased, one of the building’s largest and oldest tenants — law firm Jackson Walker LP — announced that it’s leaving soon for newer digs in downtown Dallas’ Arts District.
