Today, what is fueling the growth in commercial office design is the tenants' need to more effectively recruit, engage and retain the best talent.

Office Development Expertise
- A headquarters building is a major economic investment, as well as an important extension of a brand. To imagine and build structures reflective of a company’s mission and culture requires a special partnership. Hines works closely with third-party, corporate clients to create efficient and impressive spaces unique in both design and functionality. Shell, Devon Energy, Coca-Cola, Owens Corning, Sysco, H&R Block and Gannett/USA Today are just a few of the global companies that have placed their trust in us to develop tailored, built-to-suit corporate environments.
- Hines forever changed the landscape of multitenant office buildings in the 1970s by employing renowned architects who had previously been working mostly on civic or corporate commissions with less budgetary pressure. Hines was able to innovate advanced architecture and more efficient mechanical operation into towers that would become home to a collection of tenants.
- Today, Hines develops and leases top-of-the-market office towers and suburban campus buildings around the world, and still strives to reset the quality bar in a given market with each new project. This business model, along with superior property management, continues to be effective in drawing new tenants as well as retaining existing ones.
