Plaza Del Oro: 540-Acre Master Plan Near Texas Medical Center

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered about Shell Oil Company's 540 acre master plan called Plaza del Oro. The proposed development started in the 1970s and went into the early 1980s before collapsing.

Architect was Welton Becket, and his sibling MacDonald Becket.

This would have been near the Texas Medical Center, TMC.

There would have been high-rises (or skyscrapers) towards Highway 288 and the South Loop! The master plan is amazing.
