Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill

Distant views

This 55 story skyscraper at 738 feet is the fourth tallest building in Dallas. It is popularly known as the "Keyhole Building" because at the top the tower divides, thus creating a seven-story gap, or "keyhole." At the top the pink granite grid is replaced by a grid of glass and steel.
 
A large plaza is set in front of the skyscraper, which serves to set it further away from the historic Santuario de Guadalupe across the street. At the center of the shaft on all sides, variety is introduced by the 45 degree-angled windows running up the height. More windowed corner offices are provided by the notched corners.
