This building stands next door to the building where I work. Designed by Houston architect Kenneth Franzheim, it dates to the early 1950s and was originally known as the Prudential Building. According to the few sources I have referenced, it was the second official sky scraper in the Houston landscape.
In the not too distant future, this building will be demolished. It is already being dismantled. The white Texas limestone exterior is being removed leaving the skeletal frame exposed.
giving it a bit of a haunted house look.
Sort of apropos, leading into the season of All Hallow’s Eve.
Thank you for reading :) I appreciate your company!
