Facts

  • Hess Tower was designed to achieve a LEED gold rating with the incorporation of a number of environmentally sound features, including the installation of 10 small wind turbines atop the building's crown.
  • The building's foundation required a mat pour that involved 7,500 cubic yards of concrete poured over the span of approximately 14 hours.
  • The building originally comprised 31 stories and 630,000 square feet but was later expanded to include more office space when the attached parking garage was moved to an adjacent block.
  • Hess Tower is connected by two skybridges to Hess Tower Garage on the north and 5 Houston Center on the west.
