  1. How tall a concrete masonry wall can be designed and constructed is really a matter of vision rather than any prescriptive code requirement. I regularly see CMU walls in the 40 to 60 foot range, with some examples going even higher. Structural considerations can vary considerably from one project to another, but a general rule of thumb I use, for example, is an 8 inch block wall tends to hit its structural 'limit' around 20 to 30 feet...or more of high strength materials are used.
