The Gulf Building, on Main Street in downtown Houston, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building is also the site of the home of A.C. and Charlotte M. Allen who named the city of Houston in 1836. It was opened in 1929. Alfred C. Finn designed the 430 foot art deco edifice with a six story base topped by a tall tower that diminishes in size as it rises.
The 37 floor steel framed structure remained Houston’s tallest skyscraper for 34 years. In 1986, the building underwent a $50 million restoration. It was renamed JPMorgan Chase Bank building in 2000.
