I believe Wells Fargo is headquartered in San Francisco. The Houston building is a regional office.

Yes! It's at 420 Montgomery Street. I thought it would be in one of the skyscrapers.

The headquarters is considered to be where it was founded in San Francisco at 420 Montgomery Street in 1852. I thought it was One Embarcadero, one of the skyscrapers.

This is the Wells Fargo Miami regional office. In the panoramic skyline photo above, you can see it right above the word American in my signature line.

This pic (taken from the clock-tower reflected in the glass building on the right) does a really good job showing off the core of Boston's skyline. The city's 2 tallest towers are visible in the distance above the building with the gold plated windows.

Baltimore won't win many prizes for "biggest" or "best skyline" but it has a pleasing, balanced appeal:

A lot of great skylines, but NYC and Chicago make everyone look bad.
