PostHeaderIcon Views of Houston

Williams (aka Transco) Tower / Hotel Derick at sunset.

It's not quite dark enough yet for the tower's searchlight to start its sweep.


The Williams Tower (formerly the Transco Tower), is a skyscraper located in the Uptown District of Houston. It was designed by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, in association with Houston-based Morris-Aubry Architects, and erected in 1983. The tower is among Houston's most visible buildings and is the 4th tallest in Texas and the 22nd tallest in the United States.
