Kirksey designed this 20-story, 305,000 gsf office building for Skanska USA Commercial Development. The project includes 12 stories of office floors over an eight-story parking garage and is located on Post Oak Boulevard in the Galleria area of Houston, Texas. The office tower is extremely efficient and certified LEED Platinum.

As plans continue for light rail service along Post Oak, the Kirksey design team concentrated on creating pedestrian-friendly space at street level. Instead of placing the garage next to the building, the designers placed the office spaces on top of eight stories of parking — a plan that maximized the site, allowed for a green plaza at the front entrance, as well as better views of the city and the Waterwall Park across the street.

State of the art mechanical systems were used — an energy recovery unit, a demand-controlled ventilation system, and high efficiency chillers result in overall energy savings of 25% or more. The elevators utilize a destination control system which reduces wait times and acts as a form of security.
