Projected to achieve LEED® Platinum, 609 Main at Texas is a true next-generation office tower being developed by Hines in the heart of Downtown Houston. The project is part of the Hines CalPERS Green Fund (HCG), a partnership exclusively focused on the development of office buildings certifiable through the U.S. Green Building Council. 609 Main at Texas follows and bookends the firm's transformative BG Group Place, another HCG project two blocks away on Main Street. BG Group Place was the winner of the ULI’s 2014 Development of Distinction Award.
609 Main at Texas, at a commanding 48 stories, is carefully crafted to foster the best possible tenant experience while offering cutting-edge green concepts and artfully reflecting the sky. Its north and south facades will extend upward, culminating in a dramatic diagonal crown to create a highly visible, new landmark that will contribute to the vitality of the CBD. The narrower east and west facades will be slightly recessed, and the subtly faceted exterior will be clad in 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling glass with brushed stainless steel accents.
