Facts

  • The building's footprint forms an abstracted version of the shape of a dollar sign.
  • The design partner for Wells Fargo Plaza was Richard Keating.
  • KRIV-TV maintains a skycam which is stationed on the small antenna atop the building.
  • This is the tallest all-glass building in the Western Hemisphere.
  • In 1983, Hurricane Alicia threw this all-glass skyscraper a somewhat ironic twist of fate, as the building suffered minimal facade damage in comparison to neighboring skyscrapers.
  • Double-level skylobbies at floors 34/35 and 58/59 offer public views during business hours.
