14. Downtown 46 reduced

Knights of Pythias Castle Hall, 1901, Marshall Sanguinet and Carl Staats, 315 Main St., Downtown. J.P. Morgan Chase Texas Tower (City Center Tower 1), 1984, Paul Rudolph, 201 Main St., Downtown. Fort Worth is great at mixing the old with the new.  Sundance Square, named after Butch Cassidy's partner, is one of the most successful downtown revitalizations in the country. Many of the buildings in the 14-block entertainment area date back to the turn of the century, including the unmistakable Knights of Pythias Castle Hall. The red brick 	structure was designed by the legendary Marshall Sanguinet and his longtime partner Carl Staats. Together they had one of the largest and most successful architectural practices in Texas.  In the background is the J.P. Morgan Chase Texas Tower designed by Paul Rudolph in 1984. It still dominates the downtown skyline today.
