Wells Fargo Bank Plaza
The building was built at 1000 Louisiana Street in 1983. It was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Lloyd Jones Brewer and Associates to resemble a dollar sign when the sectional view is seen. This shape creates extreme wind stress, twisting the building violently in storms.
From street level, this building is 71 stories tall, or 970 feet tall. But it extends four more stories below street level, with a subterranean (but open-air) plaza.
