Chase Tower is a 374-foot, 31-story building located in Amarillo, Texas, United States. Formerly known as SPS Tower and Bank One Center, it is the tallest building in Amarillo and the West Texas region. The building used to be the home of the Amarillo branch of American National Bank. The building also housed the offices of the city's electric power service provider, Southwestern Public Service (which was later acquired by Xcel Energy).[1] On July 2006, the Chase logo was installed on the Chase Tower.[citation needed]

The Chase Tower dominates the skyline of downtown Amarillo.

In October 2008, the West Texas A&M University letters were installed on the Chase tower as part of the agreement to have university classes there.[2]

The Tower has a striking resemblance to the One Financial Plaza Building in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Chase Tower is only about 3 stories taller than its counterpart.
