The Bank of the Southwest Tower was a proposed building located in Houston, Texas, at 1,404 ft tall.[1] It would have been second tallest building in North America after the Willis Tower in Chicago. With an estimated construction cost of $350–400 million, the project was cancelled before construction commenced, due to lack of funds during the economic downturn.[2]

The design created by architect Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn, Inc. Architects was the winner of a design competition in 1982.[2]
