Bank of the Southwest Tower
Structure in General
- The entire 79th floor was intended to be an observation deck which could be accessed for a small fee.
- The cleared block for this tower eventually became a street-level parking lot.
- This proposal won a design competition 1982, but was never built. The "romantic modernist" design was a precursor to other Murphy/Jahn skyscrapers such as Park Avenue Tower (New York), One Liberty Place and Two Liberty Place (Philadelphia), and MesseTurm (Frankfurt).
- The Southwest Tower was demolished to make way for this tower.
