Facts

  • The building's 9-foot thick foundation required a mat pour that involved 12,000 cubic yards of concrete poured over the span of approximately 18 hours.
  • A distinctive feature of the building is a setback portion of the 39th-43rd floors facing southeast, which will feature an outdoor garden and meeting area on the 39th floor.
  • The roof and mechanical penthouse will be concealed behind a two-story parapet that is consistent with the design of the rest of the building.
  • This building required the demolition of Montagu Hotel and The New West Building, though the Aloft Houston Downtown was preserved.
  • MainPlace was initially pre-certified as a LEED-Silver project, and upon completion received pre-certification for Platinum status. This is the first such classification for any skyscraper in Texas.
