When the Viad Tower was built in 1991, it had a different name. At that time, the tower was called the Dial Tower after its major tenant, the Dial Soap Corporation. In fact, the top of the tower was designed to resemble the same curve you find in a bar of Dial soap. It is currently owned by the Viad Company, a marketing and travel business. Like other high-rise developments, this building was also supposed to have a twin tower situated at a 90 degree angle from this one. Instead of a second tower, the adjacent property has been landscaped into a spectacular private park area filled with interesting sculptures and an incredible fountain.
Tomorrow I’ll show you a picture from the beautiful grounds around this building.
