Williams Tower Opens New Tenant Amenity

(HOUSTON) – Hines, the international real estate firm, and Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, have announced a new tenant amenity which recently opened at Williams Tower, the 64-story office building owned by Invesco Real Estate in Uptown Houston.

The Fitness Center at Williams Tower, a members-only fitness facility serving the tenants of Williams Tower, opened in May and offers private and group personal training sessions, group exercise classes, complimentary fitness assessment for all new members, Wi-Fi access, spa-level locker room amenities, on-site certified personal trainers and an on-site licensed massage therapist.

The fitness and wellness program is Invesco Real Estate and Hines’ first offering of a broader amenity program being launched to meet the evolving needs of today’s tenants.

“We aim to provide space and amenities which allow businesses to thrive and be highly efficient. We believe that tenants at Williams Tower will find this amenity extremely useful,” said Williams Tower Property Manager Shannon Davenport.

The Hines property management and engineering team managed the project, which was designed by Kirksey. Trophy Fitness, who now manages the fitness center and is on-site during the hours of operation, provided design consulting and equipment procurement. Harvey Construction served as the general contractor.

Williams Tower is a 1.5 million-square-foot, 64-story office building that was developed by Hines in 1982 and has been managed by Hines since. Designed by Philip Johnson/John Burgee, the tower's familiar silhouette on the Houston sky recalls the art deco style. Clad in silver gray reflective glass and anodized aluminum, the sleek tower is accented by columns of bay windows of non-reflective glass and podium setbacks on two lower floors and four higher levels. Williams Tower is leased to a number of world-class companies, including: Williams, Hines, Rowan Companies, Quanta Services, CBRE and Ryan LLC, among others.
