Gilbane lands 47-story Texan tower

Gilbane Building Company is to serve as general contractor for a new office tower designed by Pelli Clark Pelli for downtown Houston.

Gilbane has been selected by owners Hines and Ivanhoé Cambridge for the project in the 800 block of Texas Avenue. The 47-floor tower will have a total area of more than 1.2 million square feet and will consist of office space, a parking structure, tunnel connections, outdoor gardens and terraces on level 12, networking spaces, a conference facility and a fitness center.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Hines and impact on the built environment and skyline in Houston,” said Dan Gilbane, leader of the Southwest Business Unit. “Over the past 10 years Gilbane has built over 10 million square feet office space in Houston and we are excited to work with Hines to deliver the next ‘best in class’ asset.”

Hines CEO Jeff Hines said: “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.”

The downtown site will be a Construction Career Collaborative (C3) project. Hines is one of 10 owners and 223 accredited general contractors and specialty contractors that have endorsed C3 as a collaborative way of creating a safe, skilled, and sustainable craft workforce for the industry in the Houston region.
