Bank of America Center (Houston)

The Bank of America Center is a 1984 completed, 56 floor, 238 m skyscraper (formerly the RepublicBank Center, NCNB Center, and NationsBank Center) in Houston, Texas.

The northeast corner of the structure houses a building within a building. On the site is the main Western Union building and when relocation of the telegraph cables proved infeasible,  the new structure was built over the site and the existing structure was incorporated into the new building intact.
