Not much research on that article. The ExxonMobil refinery in Baytown paid  $18.3 million in school taxes alone for 2016. I would bet the ExxonMobil campus paid at least that much as well.

Betting isn't worth much - sources are.

I probably should have worded that as not having the inclination to look up the amounts for the campus at the time. The full picture is hard to get, because the industrial district the campus is in doesn't make the bills available on their website. The rate for the ID is 1.33, so that's going to generate $13 million in taxes without even looking at the school and county amounts.

AMLI Fountain Place new rendering:

 

1496259994-AMLI-Tower_sw---cropped-email

 

Quote

"It was of the utmost importance we do something unique and different being next to I.M. Pei's Fountain Place," said Amli executive vice president Taylor Bowen. 

 


"We want to have one of the premier timeless buildings downtown."

 

 

Quote

"We wanted a very clean, geometric object and the two towers will dance with each other across the garden," Speck said. 

 


"It really will be distinctive on the skyline — the kind of signature just another box would never be."

 

 

Quote

"The glass needed to be the primary connection between the two buildings," Speck said. "We looked at tons and tons of alternatives and did testing.

I went to see Morrissey in Dallas. I'm completely jealous that the Majestic Theatre still stands and has been turned into a great smaller concert venue. Yeah, we've got whatever it's called now in Bayou Place and the HOB but this is different. I stayed at The Joule and walked to and from the venue. Passing by the old Neiman Marcus also made me jelly. Downtown looked great (well, the 6 blocks I explored before heading out to Deep Ellum to visit my friend's new brick and mortar Easy Slider joint. She's killing it after years in the food truck biz. 

 

I chose going to the Dallas show for this type of experience after Morrissey's concert in Houston was moved from White Oak to freaking Sugar Land. 

 

Dallas has a lot of great things going on. So does Houston. Grow up or get off of this thread, native onion.

I particularly like the design of AMLI's building.  I think maybe part of that is because it draws a bit of attention away from Pei's design next door, which always struck me as being somewhat "wrong" in the massing of shapes.   I generally like his work a lot -- not so much the brutalist stuff, but the things he did after that.

My understanding is that Henry Cobb designed Allied Bank Tower to play off of its older brother Allied Bank Plaza in Houston.  It's a nice link.  Both buildings also make more sense in plan view.  Where Allied Bank Plaza (1000 Louisiana, Wells Fargo Plaza) is like two quarter-circles offset diagonally, so too Allied Bank Tower at Fountain Place is a square with a parallelogram inscribed diagonally across it.  The tower's peak ingeniously splits the parallelogram in half.  The angles of the resulting secondary triangles are a little off visually when viewed in section, but who's counting?  The bluish glass has become so imitated in Texas buildings since that it unfortunately no longer obviously links the two sibling towers.
