The design featured dark gray glass cladding for twin office towers contrasted with poured in place concrete for the hotel and garage. Construction on the 5.5acre site began in 1978 and finished in 1980.In 1983 an additional office building, the 26-story Univision Center (formerly Plaza of the Americas III and Allianz Financial Centre), was constructed across Crockett Street and connected to the complex. An additional parking garage was added in 1984. Through an agreement with the City the developers received tax-exempt bond financing in exchange for a promise to develop 100 units of housing above the garage within 5 years. A fourth 26-story building, Plaza of the Americas IV, was also planned across Crockett Street. In 1989 plans changed to increase the building to 42-stories, but the structure was never built.
