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.
