Downtown Omaha skyline, looking southwest.

The tallest buildings in Omaha, Nebraska include towers for Woodmen of the World and the First National Bank of Omaha. Omaha's tallest building is the 634 feet (193 m), 45-story First National Bank Tower. Completed in 1969, the 478 feet (146 m), 30-story tall Woodmen Tower was the tallest[1] until the construction of the First National Bank Tower. While most of the city's tallest buildings are located in Downtown Omaha, several are located in Midtown Omaha. These include the 22-story, 320 feet (98 m) Masonic Manor, currently the third tallest building in the city, and the 285 feet (87 m), 14-story Mutual of Omaha Building. The University of Nebraska Medical Center is located in midtown and among its rapidly expanding campus is the 230 feet (70 m) Lied Transplant Center. Additionally, TD Ameritrade has its 230 feet (70 m), 12-story headquarters in Old Mill. There was also a proposal to build a 373 feet (114 m) Wallstreet Tower Omaha on the site of the old Union Pacific Headquarters. If the tower was completed, it would have been the city's third tallest building, however plans were eventually scrapped for the idea.
