One of Houston's most recognizable skyscrapers could be yours for the right price.

The Williams Tower, which was once known as the Transco Tower, is going up for sale. Hines Real Estate has hired a commercial real estate firm to put the Galleria-area building on the market.

The 64-story tower is nearly 30 years old and is the fourth tallest tower in the state. Hines bought the tower back in 2008 for just over $271 million.

No word yet on how much the Williams Tower is expected to sell for.
