609 Main at Texas is a true next-generation office tower 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 811 Main development, formerly known as BG Group Place, another HCG project two blocks away. 811 Main was the winner of the ULI 2014 Development of Distinction Award.
At a commanding 48 stories, 609 Main at Texas 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 extend upward, culminating in a dramatic diagonal crown to create a highly visible landmark that contributes to the vitality of the CBD. The narrower east and west facades are slightly recessed, and the subtly faceted exterior is clad in 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling glass with brushed stainless steel accents.
