The tallest building in Oakland is currently the Ordway Building, but as you might imagine, others were the 'tallest' before it was built. Taller buildings have been proposed, but none have been built yet. Note that people often incorrectly say the Tribune Tower was once the tallest building in Oakland, but it was constructed in 1923 and is 305 feet tall.
|Building||Years as Tallest||Height (ft.)||Floors|
|Oakland Bank Building||1907–1914||? / 225||8 / 18 *|
|Oakland City Hall||1914–1960||320||14|
NB: The Oakland Bank Building was constructed in 1907 at 8 stories tall. The 18-story addition was built in 1922.
