NASCAR Tower

Pei Cobb Freed & Partners as Architects

A 20-story office tower, NASCAR Plaza, anchors the southeast corner of the full-city-block development that is the Hall of Fame complex.


The form of the 427,000 s/f tower follows the lead of the Hall of Fame, consisting of a curvilinear metal-and-glass curtain wall contrasted with a rectangular precast concrete armature.Located at the intersection of the Caldwell Street freeway interchange, the tower is designed as a gateway to the city and houses NASCAR offices and their media production facilities.


Floor to ceiling glass and a shallow core-to-glass dimension provides a high amount of natural light and views to the exterior for office workers in both private and open office configurations. The base building design allows for interconnecting stairs between floors to encourage greater communication between employees and departments of a common tenancy.
