Boston Valley is Reshaping the Texaco Building in Houston, Texas

The Texaco building, located at 111 Rusk Street in downtown Houston was built in 1915. It was left vacant in 1989 when the company moved to a new building.  As a place of historic importance for residents of the downtown area, the Texaco building also holds a place on the national historic registry. Under the guidance and ownership of Provident Realty Advisors, the Texaco building will shortly have over 300 newly converted apartments on the interior, and a refreshed terra cotta facade on the outside supplied by Boston Valley.
