Thanks, polytropos! I appreciate it.
It's a pretty building, and also a tall one--it's on the Texas' top 5 and the nation's top 25.
Thanks for the infos. Big business with oil induces big buildings. ;-)
Absolutely. The city of Houston has a powerful economy. I've read if it were a country it would be on the top 25!
I worked in that building for almost 8 years. I have many memories of this work of art. When 9/11 took place, my co-workers & I, were worried that we could be a target since the terrorists were attacking American ideological landmarks: Pentagon = US Military might; Twin Towers = US Financial might. We were concerned that since Houston represents US Energy might & the Transco Tower (now Williams Tower) represents Houston's oil & gas industry, we could be next. Of course, fortunately that never happened.
It is indeed very fortunate that Houston was never victim of a large-scale terrorist attack like the one that took the Twin Towers from us. Turns out, though, their other target was the symbol of the US political might (the Capitol), but luckily it was not destroyed. I cannot even imagine how horrible it would have been if they had done it. 9/11 was horrible enough the way it was.
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!
