In 2014, Hines was hired as development manager for the new Amegy Bank Headquarters in Houston. Designed by Pickard Chilton, with interiors by Gensler, the 24-story office building consists of 350,000 square feet and was completed in 2016.
The tower’s gently curved glass façades maximize views of downtown Houston and the Galleria. The tower is accessed through a double-height daylight filled lobby, detailed in natural surfaces of wood and stone. The high-performance enclosure with 10-foot floor-to-ceiling insulated glass introduces natural light deep within the offices while mitigating solar heat gain. The property also includes an on-site employee-only dining conservatory which provides informal space for spontaneous collegial meetings.
