With 44 floors, this ageing skyscraper build in 1963 used to be tall
(the tallest in its time)
The stacked-slabs design with protruding shades on each floor
running the full length of the building on each side
served temperature control when heat-reflecting glass
windows were not yet available as a better alternative.

|ExxonMobil signage that will be no more|
after the company moves to its new campus North of Houston.
Though the building was sold, Exxon leased it back.
Other former names: ExxonMobil Building, Humble Oil Bldg.
