Here's an updated version of the list as a webpage. I believe I've got just about everything in the state excluding various suburbs here and there.

I've also put a map together where you can sort by height, perhaps useful for anyone planning a roadtrip.

Austin's current tallest will need to be replaced within 2 years when the Independent just barely squeaks by the Austonian.
