Open for Inspection Times
No inspections are currently scheduled

Designed by Pickard Chilton, the project's north and south façade extend skyward, culminating in a dramatic diagonal crown, creating a new, highly visible downtown landmark. The narrower east and west façades are slightly recessed, and the subtly faceted exterior façade is clad in floor-to-ceiling glass with brushed-stainless-steel accents. Vertical blades are incorporated in the east and west façades, offering solar shading. Computer-controlled LED illumination within the east and west recesses, and the tower's sloped crown accentuate 609 Main's presence on the nighttime skyline. The property was pre-registered LEED®, and is expected to attain Platinum certification.

Amenities at the vertically integrated campus include: a "hotel-style" lobby with a café and spaces for networking; a 7,000-square-foot high-performance fitness center and 8,000-square-foot conference center; full-height windows allowing for an abundance of natural light throughout the building; a sophisticated underfloor HVAC system; and private roof gardens in select tenant spaces. Parking for 1,700 cars is provided in an internal 13-level garage (11 above-grade and two below-grade floors).

Situated on one of the most centrally located blocks in Houston's CBD, tenants will enjoy a variety of transportation options - connectivity to Houston's tunnel system, and access to light rail, Park & Ride and mass transit. In addition, the Main Street area provides a myriad of restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as a burgeoning residential population.
