Long Description:
The Rouse Company Headquarters (now the General Growth Properties, Inc., headquarters) is located at the Columbia Town Center Lakefront. The building is a sprawling terrace overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi. The building is one of Gehry's early works and is quite different from his more recent designs.

According to some information we found on the internet (visit link): "Frank Gehry received an American Institute of Architects honor award for the building, named "one of the most humane office buildings both inside and out." The now famous Gehry did some of his earliest work in Columbia, designing the Exhibit Center and firehouse on Banneker Road."
