CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: DISCOVERY TOWER

OJB is excited to share photographs from the construction at Discovery Tower in Houston, TX.

Discovery Tower is located on a 1.2-acre city block adjacent to Discovery Green, a downtown park in Houston, Texas. The outdoor spaces include a tower plaza, auto court, bustle roof garden and perimeter streetscape for each of the tower blocks. The project has currently been pre-certified as a LEED Gold project.

The plaza design is one of simplicity and order. A white stone carpet that includes a water feature leads tenants and visitors to the entry lobby. The plaza includes a series of raised planters at seat height that mound gently to accommodate small scale flowering trees. A dining terrace located at the far end includes a raised seating area and small water feature. Located adjacent to the entry lobby the auto court allows for easy access to the tower.
