This building did not become the Tower Life building in the 40s. The Zachary family had its grimy little hands on this prize until the 70s or 80s. It was the Transit Tower before that. Please state the facts correctly. (and your last name is Navarro? Really?) Sad, I don't believe that the Zachary family will alway keep the wonderful old building pristeen. Thank goodness, for now, though, it is safe from the greedy Houston developers. Compare cities and you can see what I mean. History means absolutly nothing in Houston, save a few handful of people. Somehow the developers have kept zoning at bay by convincing the public to vote against their own self interest.
