San Antonio, Texas
Looking up at the tower's striking angles from the River walk below, presents an optical illusion that the facing wall is one-dimensional.

Nix Professional Building, dating back to 1931 and measuring 114 meters - 375 feet (23-storey).

The Nix Professional Building was established in 1930 during the heart of the Great Depression. With few resources available, Joseph M. Nix developed an adventurous concept of a multi-million dollar structure that would house a hospital, physician offices and a parking garage. This unique concept transformed the face of healthcare in San Antonio and South Texas. In fact, this "medical mall" was the first of its kind in the United States. The J.M. Nix Professional Building, now known as the Nix Medical Center, has been a leader in medical care in South Texas since its opening in 1930.
