Description
Architect: SOM

- Originally had Arthur Andersen as an anchor tenant, but the firm backed out after the Enron crisis.

- Solid bands in the facade contain thin diagonal lines, and a series of slightly accentuated 'zig zags' from the base of the tower to its roof enhance its verticality.

- Has a four-story advertising sign attached to its midsection.

- Floors three, four, forty eight and fourty nine are mechanical floors.
