Chase Tower Tours

If "everything is bigger in Texas," JPMorganChase Tower in central Houston is no exception. This skyscraper stands 75 stories tall and tops out at just over 1,000 feet (305 meters), making it the tallest building in Texas. It boasts a unique five-sided design, built with expansive 85-foot-wide (26-meter) glass, and serves as a Houston icon.

The Basics
Although the tower's 60th-floor Sky Lobby observation deck is closed to the public, visitors to the tower can enjoy the natural light and design of the lobby, which opens out onto the plaza outside; get a sense of the scale of the state's tallest structure from its base on a Houston city tour that covers all the essential landmarks; or view the tower as you emerge from one of the city's pedestrian tunnels on an underground tour led by an expert guide.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Chase Tower is considered to be one of the best free things to see in Houston's city center.
  • Much of the building is office space and unavailable to the public, so it is best admired from the lobby, the street, or afar.
  • Don't miss the 55-foot (16.7-meter) steel and cast sculpture by Spanish artist Joan Miró at the plaza outside the building, his largest freestanding work of art in America.

How to Get There
The JP Morgan Chase Tower is located at 600 Travis St. in downtown Houston. It is not currently connected to the Houston tunnel system, but it is set near a tunnel entrance.

When to Get There
You can view the tower exterior at any time of day. Note that regular building business hours are Monday to Friday from 6am to 6pm. The ground floor is a working bank, while most other tenants are offices.

Things to Do Near Chase Tower
The downtown Houston tunnel system makes for a unique experience that can be accessed near the tower. The Houston Symphony Orchestra is just one block to the west of the tower, while other nearby sights include Hermann Park, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Houston Zoo, and the Downtown Aquarium. Most attractions can be seen on a city sightseeing tour, either by double-decker bus or on foot.
