Chase Tower is an office building located in El Paso, Texas, United States.

Chase Tower[edit]

The Chase is located at 201 East Main Drive in El Paso. It is a very prominent part of the El Paso skyline and is most visible heading eastbound on I-10. It is the second tallest skyscraper in El Paso, behind Wells Fargo Plaza. Currently, the building serves as an office for multiple law firms and businesses as well as bank services. It was built in the international style of architecture, which was very popular during the time period in which the building was constructed.

Originally named the El Paso National Bank tower, it was also known as the Texas Commerce Bank Tower in the 1980s and 1990s.

As of 2017, Chase will be moving out and losing naming rights of the tower. Jamie Gallagher, senior vice president of the Borderplex Realty Trust, which owns the 201 E. Main building, said the El Paso real estate investment trust is working with a new tenant to possibly replace Chase, and, she said, put its brand on the building. [[1]]
