C orpus Christi has quite a nice downtown filled with mid-rise buildings and skyscrapers. But this is the building everyone sees on the post cards. Unlike the rest of the central business district, One Shoreline Plaza sits right on the water defying conventional wisdom in an area that is lashed by tropical storms and hurricanes almost yearly. Some preparation for this eventuality can be seen in the latticework of concrete that covers its exposed windows. They are set back quite a way which could help deflect some lateral wind force and flying debris assuming the wind isnít blowing directly at a window. Moreover, being on the water it has integrated itself into the cityís seawall allowing it to sit somewhat higher than the boring glass or concrete boxes several blocks inland. The Plaza consists of two towers positioned at an angle to each other. They are joined by a main lobby and a skywalk complex.
