JPMorgan Chase Tower was originally named Texas Commerce Tower. It is located on the north side of Downtown Houston and is the tallest building in Houston and Texas. The second tallest building in Houston is the Wells Fargo Plaza.
The lobby of the JPMorgan Chase Tower was designed to match with Jones Hall, which is Houston's home to the Houston Symphony Orchestra. The lobby actually opens up to the Plaza outside, which connects to Jones Hall. The building has an observation deck on the sixtieth floor, which gives breathtaking views of the Houston skyline. In addition it breaks up the elevator banks and one must get off at the 60th floor in order to access the elevators for the next 15 floors.
The JPMorgan Chase Tower is the tallest five sided building in the entire world. It is pale gray color with polished granite. The building includes 22,000 square feet of Houston retail space. The Houston office building is a recipient of the Energy Star for Sustainability for 2004, 2005, and 2007 - 2011. In addition, it holds a LEED Gold certification.
