Faits

  • Construction took only 16 months, a remarkably short time for a tower of such height.
  • The revolving beacon at the top uses a 7,000 watt bulb.
  • This is the tallest building in Houston outside of downtown. By some standards it is the tallest building in the world not in a central business district.
  • This building was at the center of a 1985 April Fools' Day joke from the former Houston Post newspaper featuring a doctored photo of a giant ape climbing the side of the building.
  • South of the building is a 3-acre park with a large fountain called the "Waterwall" (aka Transco Fountain), designed by the building's architects with Richard Fitzgerald & Partners. The fountain is a stunning work of hydraulic engineering.
  • The top of the building features a beacon that sweeps the night sky over the Galleria area.
  • Williams Tower functions as two 32-floor towers stacked on top of each other, complete with separate lobbies, elevators, and garages.
