Wells Fargo Plaza

Wells Fargo Plaza

The Wells Fargo Plaza, completed in 1983 and formerly knwon as the Allied Bank Plaza and First Interstate Bank Plaza, is located at 1000 Louisiana Street in downtown Houston, USA.  This building is currently the 13th-tallest Building in the United States, and the second tallest building in Texas and Houston, after Houston’s JPMorgan Chase Tower. It is the tallest building named for Wells Fargo.  From street level, the building is 302 m tall, contains 71 floors, and is extensively made of green glass. Only the Wells Fargo Plaza offers direct access from the street to the Houston tunnel system; otherwise, entry points are from street-level stairs, escalators, and elevators located inside buildings that are connected to the tunnel.
