Bank of America Center is a building of distinction - irreplaceable in both its quality and stature. Designed by Phillip Johnson and John Burgee, this magnificent 56-story, Class A tower is center stage as the pinnacle of architecture, delivering the highest quality office space and service in prestigious Downtown Houston.
The interior and exterior of the building is sheathed in rough textured Napoleon red granite, quarried in Sweden and finished in Italy. Even the surrounding sidewalks are composed of the same granite used in the building. The lobby is highlighted by an 18 foot high 1914 Seth Thomas clock, of which only 300 were ever built.

Servcorp is located on the 39th floor of The Bank of America Center. Level 39 features various art pieces created by Carol Christie, a contemporary abstract expressionist. Her painting process transverses effortlessly between subjectivity and objectivity. Her high energy paint strokes, luminous depth of color and lyrical color patterning, are profoundly visceral and soul-stirring. The raw, harnessed energy in her paintings underlines the complex contrast of emotion mirrored in her works. Christie began exhibiting her contemporary acrylic works on canvas in 1990. C.A. Christie (how she signs her work) is represented by numerous fine art galleries. Her work hangs in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
