Construction started: 2008

The office building is located along the edge of a 12-acre park that is quickly being surrounded by residential high-rises, restaurants, hotels, arenas, and other amenities meant to being modern downtown living to Houston.

Two floors of restaurants and shops are expected to open up within a leisurely walk of the greenspace that is drawing thousands of people to an area that used to be little more than surface parking lots.
