HOUSTON | One Market Square | 198m | 651ft | 41 fl | U/C

First Renders Surface For New Stream Essex International Tower

Quote:
A reader sends Swamplot what appears to be the first rendering of the Gensler-designed International Tower: What has been tentatively described as a 41-story, 750,000-sq.-ft. office building, [render clearly for larger, taller tower] developed by Stream Realty and Essex Commercial Properties, would go up on a Linbeck-owned block Downtown that now is a surface parking lot bound by Preston, Prairie, Milam, and Travis; it’s immediately south of Market Square Park and immediately west of where Hines has said it is considering building another residential highrise. The reader adds that the first 2 floors of the new tower would be devoted to retail and what appears to be a restaurant; construction could begin as early as next year.

From:

http://www.us.am.joneslanglasalle.co...ts_Q1_2013.pdf

Quote:
International Tower in the CBD is being developed by Stream Realty and Essex Commercial Properties. This 925,000-square-foot, 37 - 50 story, Class A building [on a site bounded by Preston, Prarie, Milam, Travis] in the CBD is being marketed as Houston’s first '50-story office tower' in 30 years.

With one Houston tower already increased in size and height, this very fluid proposal looks to be going the same direction. The dust hasn't settled on this proposal so expect many changes...

The tower reminds me a bit of the Hudson Yards in NYC. It isn't bad, but still kinda medicore because it looks a bit fat

A more slender tower may look better, but this is still a decent modern design.

there hasn't been any news on this tower in a while.
Stream/Essex must still be seeking tenants.

The garage, which has a retail component, is being built first. Office tower comes once a tenant is secured. Skanska planned Capitol Tower out this way as well.

They ought to convert this into a residential or mixed-use development. That much office space is going to be hard to fill...

It's nice. Reminds me of the Wilshire Grand in LA, minus the spire.
