“Skanska USA Commercial Development announced that it will begin development this month on West Memorial Place II, a 381,000 square-foot, 14-story office building located on a 12-acre site in the heart of Houston’s Energy Corridor. The project is Skanska’s second office building at this 12-acre site, located on Memorial Drive and is scheduled to complete at the end of 2015.”

Both West Memorial Place I and II projects are targeting LEED Platinum certification and will be the first speculative office buildings in the Houston Energy Corridor to achieve this rating.”

“Sustainable features planned for West Memorial Place II include a highly efficient mechanical system with an energy recovery wheel and magnetic bearings in the chillers providing cost saving energy efficiencies for building occupants, tenant convenience and demand-controlled ventilation. The development will also contain a high quality building envelope made with stone and high efficiency glass system for protection against glare and heat gain.”
