Facts

  • Continental Center I is the headquarters for Continental Airlines.
  • The top of the building is lit in blue with a faded Continental Airlines logo only for several hours in the evening, to comply with city sign ordinances.
  • Though it may appear sparse from some sides, the exterior landscaping contains a sunken fountain and picnic area, as well as some interestingly done sculptures integrated into the sidewalk along Smith Street, known as the "rolled up sidewalks".
