HOUSTON | Niels Esperson Building | 410' - 32 FLRS | 1927

The Niels and Mellie Esperson buildings were once the crown jewels of Houston's skyline.

The Niels Esperson building is the only complete examples of Italian Renaissance architecture in Downtown Houston. Designed by John Eberson, the Esperson buildings were built in 1927 and 1941, respectively. They are elaborately detailed with massive columns, great urns, terraces, and a grand tempietto at the top, similar to one built in the courtyard of San Pietro in Rome in 1502.
