Houston skyline watchers should note Transco Tower will be renamed Williams Tower. "The tower is a Houston landmark that symbolizes stability and innovation, two qualities that accurately define our business at Williams," said Cuba Wadlington Jr., general manager of Williams' Transco pipeline system. Williams merged with Transco Energy Co. in 1995 and moved to the tower. Then, Williams Communications Solutions, formerly known as WilTel, moved its headquarters there in August 1995. Today, Williams houses its national technical resource center at the tower and occupies 39 floors. The tower is 64 stories tall and was built in 1982. It is the tallest building in the United States located outside of a downtown area.
