Bank of America Center

The Bank of America Center is a highrise representing one of the first significant examples of postmodern architecture construction in downtown Houston, Texas. Formerly known as the RepublicBank Center, the NCNB Center, and the NationsBank Center, the building was completed in October 1983 and designed by award winning architect Johnson/Burgee Architects, and is reminiscent of the Dutch Gothic architecture of canal houses in The Netherlands. It has three segmented tower setbacks, each with a steeply pitched gabled roofline that is topped off with spires. There are 32 passenger elevators each finished with wood panels that include Birdseye Maple, Macassar Ebony, Italian Willow, Tamo, and Kevazingo.
