Facts

  • This is the tallest five-sided building in the world.
  • When completed it was the tallest building outside New York and Chicago, and the seventh tallest building in the world.
  • Tallest building in the United States west of the Mississippi River from 1982-1990; surpassed by the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles.
  • In the original design for this tower, 80 floors were to have been built. However, the floor count would be reduced to 75 because the FAA felt that 80 floors would place aircraft at risk flying in and out of William P. Hobby Airport.
  • There is a two-story skylobby on the 60th floor that once served as an observation deck overlooking downtown and southwest Houston. It was closed to the public in the 2010s.
  • The main lobby is a 5-story atrium on the diagonal side, facing the plaza. On the other sides the lobby is open to the tunnel system below.
  • Miro's original "Personage and Birds" sculpture model is in the 60th floor skylobby along with two other sculptures that were considered for the plaza.
  • This building lost over four dozen windows to Hurricane Rita in 2005, and in 2008 it lost 513 to Hurricane Ike. The damage caused by the latter storm was repaired over the course of 59 days at a cost of $5 million.
  • Between 2020 and 2021, the plaza was updated and included a design element added to the main entrance reminiscent of original architect I.M. Pei's work at the Louvre in Paris.
