The Former Enron Tower in Houston


The Houston, Texas skyscraper now known simply as 1400 Smith Street has a storied history.  Seen here in this drone video by Lone Star Drones, the tower was previously named for its major tenant: Enron Corporation, which spectacularly collapsed in late 2001 amidst what is still  considered history's largest accounting scandal.  The first "big story" following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, for weeks TV newscasts carried footage of distraught employees outside of what was then known as Enron Center.
