Discovery Plaza Hess Tower

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