With a $352 million pricetag and a seating capacity of 71,054, Houston’s Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, opened in 2002.

Besides football, the stadium is also home to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas (formerly, the Texas Bowl).

This photo was taken day of the inaugural Texas Bowl where Rutgers defeated Kansas State 37-10. The old logo is still featured throughout the park.

Reliant Stadium featured the first retractable roof in the NFL.

1400 Smith Street

leave a comment »

50 stories tall and the 11th tallest building in Houston, 1400 Smith Street stands as postmodern architecture in the heart of Houston, Texas. With Chevron as a major tenant of the building, the building served as the former headquarters of Enron.

Enron financed the construction of the circular skywalk that links 1400 Smith Street to a building across the street.

Construction on the skyscraper was completed in 1983.
