Facts

  • The building's footprint is an exact square.
  • Windows are recessed from the frame to control heat and glare from the sun. (Because of the diagonal street grid of downtown Houston, all 4 sides of buildings there are exposed to sunlight.).
  • The fountains along Louisiana Street were installed in 1984, and replaced a number of drive-through bank kiosks.
  • The main lobby of the building is raised above street level, and requires elevators or an escalator to have access.
  • During the Tenneco years, the letters T-E-N-N-E-C-O outlined the top of the building on each of the four sides.
  • The architects were recognized with an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1969.
