Our Gilbane team brings a collection of differentiators unique to high-rise construction and the City of Houston.
New 47-story high-rise in the heart of downtown houston
Leading global construction firm, Gilbane Building Company has been selected by owners Hines and Ivanhoé Cambridge to provide general contractor services for their new office tower project in the 800 block of Texas Avenue in downtown Houston.
The 47-floor tower designed by Pelli Clark Pelli will be an impressive addition to the Houston skyline. The building will total more than 1.2 million square feet and consist of office space, an above and below grade parking structure, tunnel connections, outdoor gardens and terraces on level 12, networking spaces, full service conference facility, fitness center and a dramatic lobby with influence from the hospitality sector, among other amenities. Completion date is set for late 2021.
“This tower promises to be a true ‘next-generation’ office building, drawing from the research and best practices we have learned from our office developments around the world. We are excited to not only be building it, but also to move our headquarters there,” says Jeff Hines, CEO of Hines.
The downtown site will be a Construction Career Collaborative (C3) project. Hines is one of ten owners and 223 Accredited GCs and Specialty Contractors who have endorsed C3 as a collaborative business solution to creating a safe, skilled, and sustainable craft workforce for the industry in the Houston region. This is a first for Hines and demonstrates the highest standard of care for the construction workforce that will construct this next generation tower.
