About Metro Tower
The Metro Tower originally known as the Great Plains Life Building is an office skyscraper located in Lubbock, Texas. Completed in 1955, it is the tallest building in Lubbock at 274 feet (84 meters) high, and has 20 floors. It was originally known as Great Plains Life Building after the insurance company that first occupied the building. Following the 1970 Lubbock tornado all businesses pulled out and it was left in a decrepit state. After many renovations, the building was reopened in 1975 and has been occupied ever since.
