Number of stories in tower
Foot high columns in tower
The new structure needed to be respectful of the church, a 1940s Renaissance design by Jacques Benedict, yet also integrate into the city’s business district. Fentress used Holy Ghost as a focal point, designing a 43-story glass-sheathed triangular tower that cradles the church with concave walls while allowing it exposure. The new structure rests on 50-foot pillars, creating an exciting urban space for pedestrians below. Stepped-back glass facades result in numerous “corner” offices with million-dollar views of the mountains.
