Pennzoil Place

Recommended Posts

Maybe I was trippin. Either pennzoil place has a light show on their building at night now, or it was just lights from party on the plaza. I saw it coming in from 45 n last night. It looked cool, and then right by the bagby exit u see the big blue lights comin from under the freeway for the bayouwalk.

wow, that's awesome, looking at Jones Plaza in the background, I know it was rebuilt from the original, but I'm now more interested in seeing this original design.

The second photo has the only clear picture I've ever seen of the Western Union building that was incorporated into the Bank of America tower.

I started a job in early 1982 in the building seen in the upper left corner of this photo (the HL&P Electric Tower Annex), and had a clear view out of those windows.
Couldn't ask for a better ringside seat to watch Republic Bank (as it was known then) go from excavation to completion.
For many years afterward people would argue with me as to whether it was only an urban legend that there was a building contained within the banking lobby.

If you've seen one side, you've seen all four.  It was completely symmetrical, and about as inviting as your average grocery store parking lot.
