New Orleans: Gerald D. Hines Interests, N.d. [c. 1970], Promotional and leasing information book for this 51-story high-rise completed in 1972. Almost identical to two other SOM designs built in the same period, One Shell Plaza in Houston and Republic Plaza in Denver. With descriptions of amenities, among them a basement Mall. Remember the old image of the Southern businessman getting the job done, in a relaxed, friendly, and social way? Not at One Shell. "With this immediate facility you spend less time serving yourself and apply a higher percentage of your hours to the demands of your business. ...[services offered] All these things enable you to actually tend to your personal needs in less time than you now spend and get back to your office faster for a more productive day." First edition. 30.5 cm; 51 pp.; illustrated from photographs, plans, and drawings. A fine copy in beige cloth in a slightly damaged slipcase. (Item ID: 012117)
