Tower II is strategically located in the heart of the Corpus Christi Central Business District. It provides walking distance to the County Courthouse and Marina Arts District with easy access to the Port of Corpus Christi, the industrial corridor, and the airport. The building overlooks downtown Corpus Christi and is six blocks from the sea wall. This superior access enables tenants and visitors to commute within minutes from downtown to the city’s retail and residential areas.
Wisznia & Peterson Architects, Walter Wisznia’s architectural firm, designed both Tower II and Tower III. Walter Wisznia was an architect and real estate developer who practiced in Corpus Christi from 1947 until his death in 2004. He is considered one of the most outstanding modern architects in South Texas during the second half of the 20th century. Other prominent buildings designed by Wisznia & Peterson Architects include the Nueces County Courthouse, Corpus Christi Independent School District Administrative Headquarters, Driscoll Foundation Children’s Hospital, Roy Miller High School, The Executive House, Park Tower, and over 70 banks and 80 single-family houses.
Tower ll and Tower lll were constructed in two phases. Tower II was initially built as a stand-alone office tower, and then in 19XX the Pavilion and Tower III were added.
So, the question that is often asked is where is “Tower I”?
When the “twin towers” were initially conceived, Tower ll and Tower lll were in partnership with First City Bank. First City was a Houston based, bank-holding company that owned and occupied what is now known as the Wells Fargo Tower. That building, in essence, was “Tower I”.
The unique shape of both Tower II and III created a commanding view of the waterfront by the majority of each floor’s tenants. Additionally, the building’s triangular footprint created a very efficient floor plan with minimal public circulation and building core areas. The exterior’s undulating horizontal bands of glass and marble reduced heat gain, further adding to the efficiency of each building. Although the buildings are well over 30-years old, the classic-modern design will continue to withstand time and define Uptown Corpus Christi.
