Faits

  • A tin cross was embedded in the concrete of each floor, following tradition. The last cross was added at 9 pm on May 27, 2003 to the penthouse. The idea came from a story about an immigrant who worked on construction during the 1940s in New York City.
  • The silvery blue color glass facade has only been used once on one other building in the world, 3 Times Square, also known as Reuters Building in New York City.
  • The height of the tower crane used during construction was 600 feet tall. This broke a record as the tallest ever used in Austin at that time.
  • Over 200,000 square feet of glass was used in the facade of the tower; 45,000 square feet of glass was used in the crown, about one acre's worth (materials in the crown alone cost $1.5 million).
  • Four Frost Bank logo signs were added above the main roof. The logos are 20 feet in diameter. The signs are now the highest signs on a skyscraper in Austin at approximately 420 feet high.
  • Floorplates range in size from 16,826 to 25,856 square feet.
  • May 28, 2003, the building has its topping out ceremony for the main roof and mechanical penthouse. A 30-foot cedar tree was hoisted to the top of the mechanical penthouse.
  • The building is exactly 515 feet, 9 inches tall.
  • The project includes a plaza with a restaurant, a workout facility and high-speed elevators.
  • The original design called for a blue glass rectangular shaped tower with a 3-story limestone podium. It was to be 352 feet tall with 27 floors.
  • The building's lighting design won Cline Bettridge Bernstein Lighting Design Inc. the 2004 IALD Award of Merit.
  • Tallest building in Austin when it opened.
  • At the time of its groundbreaking on November 27, 2001, this was the tallest building in America to have started construction after the September 11th attacks. Source: Cousins Properties Inc.
