General information

Overview The Hess Tower is a project of Trammell Crow Company, a real estate development and investment firm, and Principal Real Estate.[1] Architect Marshall Strabala was the building's lead designer. He has said that, “The attention to detail, design and finishes that are being implemented in this project are truly a first of its kind for Houston.” [2][3] The building is expected to earn its Gold LEED Certification for its sustainable design. Among the “green building” features will be 10 wind turbines placed on the roof to generate wind power. This will be the first time wind turbines have been incorporated as a design feature in a Houston office building. Other sustainable features will be energy efficient air conditioning and lighting, a green roof, water efficient landscaping and plumbing fixtures, stormwater management, solar shading fins on the building's south elevation, and extensive use of natural light.[4] The Class A building is situated next to Discovery Green, Houston’s new $122 million, 12-acre (49,000 m2) park, and will offer tenants views and pedestrian access to the park and surrounding areas.[5] Houston Mayor Bill White heralded the building saying, “Discovery Tower’s (Now Hess Tower's) sustainable design puts Houston another exciting step closer to its goal of being the energy efficient capital of the world.” [6] The development also will feature two-stories of retail and restaurant space overlooking a landscaped arrival court and water garden, and a 10-story parking structure on the adjacent northern block. CB Richard Ellis, an affiliate of Trammell Crow, is responsible for marketing of the development.[7]
