Williams Tower


File this in the “Everything Is Big in Texas ” file.

The Williams Tower is one of Houston ’s most visible buildings. Odd thing is… it’s not located downtown, rather in the uptown area across the street from the posh Galleria shopping center. While only the 80th tallest building in the world, it IS the tallest building outside of a central business district with its 64 stories measuring 277m (909 ft).

It’s not enough that it is the tallest structure for miles, at night its 7000 watt rotating beacon can be seen for up to 40 miles.

Weather permitting, of course… your mileage may vary.
