  • History: The Bank of America Center is a high rise representing one of the first significant examples of postmodern construction in downtown Houston. Formerly known as the Republic Bank Center, the NCNB Center, and the Nations Bank Center, this building was completed in October 1983 and designed by award winning architect Philips Johnson and partner John Burgee, and is reminiscent of the Dutch Gothic architecture of canal houses in The Netherlands. It has three segmented tower setbacks, each with a steeply pitched gabled roof line that is topped off with spires. The tower was developed by Hines Interests and is owned by a joint venture of M-M Properties and an affiliate of the General Electric Pension Trust.

Pennzoil Tower

4,471 LIVES PROTECTED

  • Two Tower, 40 Floors each
  • 1.35M Square Feet
  • Fire alarm system was retrofitted in 2014 with a Notifier NFS2-3030 system.
  • History: Pennzoil Place, developed and managed by Gerald D. Hines Interests, consists of two 495 foot trapezoidal towers placed ten feet apart and sheathed in dark bronze glass and aluminum. The buildings are mirror images of each other. The entire street-level plaza joining the two structures is enclosed in a 115 foot glass pyramid-shaped atrium. Deliberately designed as an optical illusion, Pennzoil Place’s appearance will vary depending on the different locations from where it is viewed. Pennzoil Place is considered significant in architectural circles for breaking the modernist glass box design made popular by followers of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and for introducing the era of postmodernism. The buildings combined contain 1,400,000 square feet of leasable space. Architect Philip Johnson was awarded the 1978 AIA Golf Medal and became the first laureate of the Pritzker Prize in Architecture in 1979 for his work on Pennzoil Place. Pennzoil Place was named “Building of the Decade” in 1975 by The New York Times architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable because of the dramatic silhouette it added to the Houston skyline.
