609 Main at Texas

609 Main at Texas is a 41-story Class-A next generation office tower that offers a signature presence in the Houston skyline and contributes to the vitality of the Central Business District.  At the nexus of the Metro and bus lines, the tower also offers a direct connection to the downtown pedestrian tunnel system.

The sustainably-designed office tower will be clad in a high performance enclosure with low-E floor-to-ceiling glass.  Efficient and flexible 27,500 sf floor plates accommodate a variety of uses, allow daylight deep into the building and offer panoramic views.  Efficient building systems include under floor HVAC; “smart” elevators; and, sophisticated safety systems.  The podium conceals parking for 1200 cars and features an expansive urban roof garden.

The lobby features a modern café and a digital working bar.  Amenities include a conference facility; a fine dining restaurant; and a fitness center with associated facilities.
