International Center


Recommended Posts

Came across this in a January 1957 issue of Houston magazine: 


"With strong vertical lines soaring upward, the first skyscraper in southeast Houston – a $10-million 27-story International Center (the third largest scraper in Houston) – is scheduled for construction near Gulfgate Shopping Center. Contrasting the horizontal ranch house lines of the surrounding sprawling subdivisions, the office building (and a connecting $5-million hotel-motel) will be built by Southern Enterprise Corporation near Gulf Freeway on 20 acres purchased from Mayor Oscar Holcombe for almost $1-million – one of the biggest land deals in Houston in recent years."
