Capital One Tower

by 3DWarehouse
"The Capital One Tower (stands 21 stories and 300' tall) is located in Lake Charles, Louisiana and was the tallest building in southwest Louisiana until L'Auberge du Lac casino (26 stories, 308 feet tall) was built. The building was designed by Lloyd Jones Brewer Associates of Houston and constructed by Miner-Dederick of Houston and F. Miller and Sons of Lake Charles. Construction began in March 1981 with groundbreaking in January 1982. The building was opened in 1984 with 397,000 square feet (36,900 m2) of space. Cost was estimated $31 million. Capital One Tower is one of the dominant features of the Lake Charles skyline. The building was originally called the CM Tower, for Calcasieu Marine National Bank, then renamed the Hibernia tower after Hibernia merged with Cacasieu Marine, then was changed to the Capital One Tower after Capital One acquired Hibernia National Bank in 2005. The building sustained damage to its atrium and several upper floors during Hurricane Rita." -provided by Wikipedia
