This tree grows outside my office, and it's really lovely. It has a narrow trunk, grows at least 20 feet, has lobed leaves and a broad high canopy (relative to its size). The leaves have started to turn, hence the dark tips, but usually it's a solid green leaf.

It looks like a Japanese Maple.

That's what I was wondering. It is growing taller than the Japanese maples I have seen, but maybe that's because it is in a courtyard and has to reach higher to get to the sun?

Some Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) can grow to 25 feet in height.
