The BBVA Compass Plaza on Post Oak is 22 stories tall. The building will serve as the bank's headquarters. It also has a 24-hour gym and a cafeteria.

The bank says the entire space is designed to maximize efficiency.

BBVA is one of 900 large companies to expand in Houston or relocate to the Bayou City since 2010.
