Oil & Gas Building

309 W. 7th - 1954

 

The Oil & Gas Building was constructed on the corner of 7th and Taylor Streets in 1954 and was designed by Preston M. Geren & Associates.  This 16 story building sits at an intersection where the street grid shifts.  Although a separate structure, the ground floor lobby of the Oil & Gas Building connects with the neighboring Star-Telegram Building, constructed in 1930.  They also share a common main entrance on 7th Street.  The design of this building is also similar to the Oncor Building, two blocks to the east and also designed by Geren's firm.
