Described by Wikipedia as “among the most recognizable” buildings in Downtown Houston, The Millie Esperson Building and Niels Esperson Buildings are the only complete examples of Italian Renaissance architecture in Downtown Houston. Designed by theater architect John Eberson, the Esperson buildings were built in 1927 and 1941, respectively. They are elaborately detailed with massive columns, great urns, terraces, and a grand tempietto at the top, similar to one built in the courtyard of San Pietro in Rome in 1502.

“Today’s announcement is the culmination of hard work, dedication, and a focused business strategy built upon the Company’s evolution as a global Infratech leader,” said Dennis O’Leary, DarkPulse Chairman & CEO.
