5 Houston Center

This addition to the Houston Center cluster breaks from the black-glass-and-stripes mold of its elder, and taller, siblings. Number five is a more 1990's design, emphasizing light open spaces and an more upscale image. One way the developer, Crescent, accomplishes this feat is through taller than normal ceilings. Fortunately, 5 Houston Center will connect to the downtown tunnel system via a skybridge to Chevron Tower. Too often these days, downtown's new skyscrapers are forgetting to link to this network which is a vital way for people to move about the city no matter what the weather or construction obstacles on the surface.
