The nine story office building built in 1975, located adjacent to the Astrodome, is one of a group of nondescript buildings in a freeway office park. Kirk And Associates designed the 1999 exterior renovations painting the building in an ombre’ effect with dark gray at street level shading through a range of grays to lightest gray at the roof line. The facade was augmented with a wave shaped canopy of steel and glass, United States, Texas and corporate flags, and royal palms flanking the entrance. A new pedestrian bridge from the dark grey painted parking garage to the entrance was added. New draught resistant landscaping with colorful annual flower beds all make this building a standout.
