Today known as Carter+Burgess Plaza, this glass office tower is in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. Tenants include the Petroleum Club of Fort Worth, Carter+ Burgess and Larry North Fitness. Continental Plaza was built as the home of the Continental National Bank and is Fort Worth's third-tallest structure. The skyscraper sits at a 45-degree angle on its lot and features a number of setbacks to allow light down to the street. Woodbine, which served as developer and project manager on Continental Plaza, delivered the project three months ahead of schedule and $3 million under budget.
