The JPMorgan Chase Tower is a 305.4-meter (1,002-foot), 2,243,013-square-foot (208,382.7 m2), 75-story skyscraper at 600 Travis Street in Downtown Houston, Texas.
It is currently the tallest building in Houston, the tallest building in Texas, the tallest five-sided building in the world, the 22nd-tallest building in the United States, and the 107th-tallest building in the world.
The tower was built between 1979 and 1981 as the Texas Commerce Tower.
The lobby of JPMorgan Chase Tower has been designed to harmonize not only with the height of the structure but also with the portico of Jones Hall, home of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, and which occupies the city block immediately to the west. For that reason, a five-story glass wall supported by a stainless steel space frame spans the entire 85-foot width of the front entrance, making the lobby area light and airy, and opening up the space to the plaza outside.
The sky lobby observation deck is located on the 60th floor. The sky lobby acts as a transfer point for persons traveling to the upper (61–75) floors.
The building stood in for the headquarters of the fictional "Knox Oil & Gas Company" in the 1983 film Local Hero.
