Officially, Odessa had a population of just under 100,000 people in 2010, making it the 28th most-populous Texas city. However, over the last decade, the population has grown dramatically, causing Forbes to rank it as the third fastest-growing small city in America, which means today, it may have moved up that list a bit.
Odessa has a variety of different buildings scattered all across its area. That includes both high-rise and low-rise buildings. This is especially true due to the fact that Odessa’s economy has historically followed the booms and busts of the crude oil industry, so its building trends have followed these time periods as well.
Industrial services have also experienced booms in Odessa as well. If you’re thinking about running your business out of Odessa, you need to pay attention to industrial services. City Wide can help you maintain your business’s building as easily as possible.
Odessa is nothing if not a fast-growing city, and that quick growth is one of the things that’s put it on the map in terms of business. If your business wants to maintain a great structure in Odessa, you’re going to need to maintain it with three things: beauty, structural integrity, and DIY maintenance.
The beauty element of your building is certainly important; it’s integral if you want to make sure your building makes employees excited to work there. This is exactly why City Wide offers a variety of beautification processes for your buildings, including window washing, pressure washing, and high dusting.
The structure of a building is something you can’t overlook. It’s important to maintain a building’s structure, especially if it’s an older building, which many of the buildings in Odessa are. City Wide offers building restoration, anchor inspection, and anchor installation, which is a great opportunity to maintain your structural stability.
In general, most of these things are best to leave to an expert, but there are some elements of building maintenance you might be able to do on your own. To help you with your DIY fixes, City Wide offers equipment rentals and anchor load test certification.
The design styles all around Odessa are definitely something to love. Odessa has managed its economy largely through the oil system in the past, which means that every time an oil boom occurs, Odessa has mostly started to build bigger buildings; that means there are many early-1900s buildings scattered around Odessa.
The tallest building in Odessa, however, is the Prosperity Bank Building, which is a 176-foot, 13-story building that saw its completion in 1960. It’s a primary feature of the Odessa skyline, as the second-tallest buildings all clock in at only eight stories tall, or around 100 feet.
Odessa’s history is nothing if not rich; its initial founding was in 1881, though it was only incorporated in 1927. Another one of the main factors that draw people toward Odessa is the fact that former president George H. W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush made it their home.
A combination of the interesting designs and the incredible natural landscape make Odessa truly a beautiful place to live and work. You can even find a replica of Stonehenge at the University of Texas in Odessa. No matter what you’re hoping to use it for, Odessa is certainly a treasure of Texas.
Legally, Odessa is not yet 100 years old, but its first post office opened way back in 1885. That means it has dramatically more than 100 years of history behind it and more than 100 years of architecture to draw on.
Of course, regardless of how old a building is, every building is going to need a certain amount of upkeep. Don’t think that you’ll be able to avoid upkeep entirely just because you’re planning to move your business into a modern building.
You should definitely put more thought into the structural stability of a historic building than a modern building. It’s much more common for historical buildings to have structural concerns, but if you manage those, you can put a lot of emphasis on the external beauty.
Don’t assume that modern buildings have no structural problems, however. Modern buildings can still have pretty significant issues with structural concerns. As long as you’re maintaining any potential structural problems, you can focus your attention on the outside of the building with no problem.
