Luhrs Tower

At 14 stories tall, the Luhrs Tower stands as a perfect example of the type of Art Deco architecture you hope to find in a historic metropolis. The skyscraper, located just across the street from CityScape, was erected in 1929 thanks to developer George Luhrs and El Paso architecture firm Trost & Trost. If the building looks familiar to non-locals, it might be because it appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho.
