In 2007, TCC, in a joint venture with Principal Real Estate Investors, acquired two city blocks in the Houston Central Business District adjacent to a new 12-acre urban park, Discovery Green, seeing an opportunity to develop the first Class-A office space in the Houston CBD since 2003. First class amenities include a 16,000-square-foot outdoor plaza, extraordinary views of Discovery Green, two story glass and marble lobby, 149-car sub-grade parking spaces and an adjacent 1,350-stall garage, street and mezzanine level retail and restaurant space.


By coordinating with architects, contractors, engineers, and consultants, TCC was able to deliver the high-rise on an accelerated schedule, creating the healthiest, most comfortable, and productive work environment in Houston.

Before the building’s structure was topped-out, the entire project was leased to Hess Corporation (NYSE: HES) for its Exploration and Production Headquarters. The building, renamed Hess Tower, received the highest rating available from the United States Green Building Council, LEED Core and Shell Platinum.
