DaTrain Posted January 16, 2005 Share Posted January 16, 2005 Williams Tower - formerly known as Transco Tower Height: 901 feet 64 stories Circa: 1983 Architects: Johnson Burgee and Morris Aubry Facts - Then Transco Tower became Williams Tower when Transco Energy was bought out by Williams Energy Corp. in 1999 - Tallest building outside of any CBD - Rotating beacon at night on roof every 15 seconds - Williams Tower functions as two 32-floor towers stacked on top of each other, complete with separate lobbies, elevators, and garages. - South of the building is a 3-acre park with a large fountain called the "Waterwall" (aka Transco Fountain), designed by the building's architects with Richard Fitzgerald & Partners. The fountain is a stunning work of hydraulic engineering. - The top of the building features a beacon that sweeps the night sky over the Galleria area. - Construction took only 16 months, a remarkably short time for a tower of such height. 2 Pics by Patrick Benders Next four Pics by Mancuso Former 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
