Significance: The LCC was listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on January 21, 2000. Originally nominated in the context of the Apollo Program, ca. 1961 through 1975, the LCC has since gained importance in the context of the Space Shuttle program, ca. 1969 to 2010. It is considered significant at the national level under NRHP Criterion A in the areas of Space Exploration and Communications, and under NRHP Criterion C in the area of Architecture. The Launch Control Center performs the vital operations integral to the prelaunch preparation and launch of NASA's manned space vehicles. Under Criterion C, the LCC, like typical examples of the International Style, is characterized by a lack of exterior ornament, a flat roof, ribbon windows on the north elevation, a skeletal structure of reinforced concrete, cantilevered upper floors, and an emphasis on horizontality.
