Master Planning for 64-Acre, 5 Million Square Foot Mixed-Use Campus

Phase I Includes:

One Skyrise: 758,000 SF Class A Office

Two Skyrise: 550,000 SF Class A Office

One Uptown: 360,000 Square Foot Class A Office

Master Planning / Architecture / Interiors / Technology / Sustainability

This master plan for a 64-acre site in Austin, Texas sought to redevelop an existing corporate campus into a dense and vibrant mixed-use district with residential, retail and high-tech office space. The existing site contains eight office buildings, two parking garages and surface parking lots. The plan was organized into a grid that maintained maximum flexibility for the timeline of replacing existing structures while allowing new development to fill in around them.

An existing public transit line runs along one side of the property, and the plan proposed to relocate an existing station to a nearby undeveloped area at the edge of this property to better serve this site, an adjacent corporate campus and another mixed-use district. The primary street of the proposed plan functions as the principal retail spine and links the new transit station through the development to the adjacent district.

Page is following up on the preliminary master plan work with design work for multiple mixed-use high-rise office buildings, One Uptown and One and Two Skyrise, (office / retail + multifamily) as well as the new rail station.

The One Uptown office building is a 360,000-square-foot, 14-floor Class-A office building with 44,000-square-foot floor plates and a 4/1,000 parking ratio. The project is targeting LEED Silver certification.

One and Two Skyrsise are landmark projects that occupy a key location at the symbolic terminus of Palm Way in the overall development’s master plan. Consisting of two high-rise office buildings, one above-grade parking garage and a large below-grade parking garage connecting all the buildings, these projects will provide roughly 1.3M square feet of office space across the site.

East River will be one of the most important urban redevelopment sites in Houston. Less than a mile from downtown and inside Loop 610, about 150 acres of carefully designed, multiphase, mixed-use development will transform Houston’s historic waterfront along Buffalo Bayou. East River will be developed as a new economic center welcoming a wide variety of residents, workers and visitors of all ages and diverse cultures. The redevelopment of the former KBR shipping and industrial complex will open more than a mile of waterfront that was inaccessible to the wider community for many decades, and will include improvements to streets, drainage, sidewalks and lighting, bike and pedestrian access, green spaces, parks and trails.

Phase 1 of East River encompasses the first 26 acres on the western end of the project. In addition to developing the masterplan, Page has completed design for the commercial and retail buildings scheduled to start construction later this year. The initial six structures will include 167,000 SF of office space, 117,500 SF of retail space, and a 900-car parking garage. An additional 200,000 SF office tower has also been designed to complete the commercial space in phase 1.

The project has been designed to recall the manufacturing and shipping heritage of the site while still creating architecture and places that are new and exciting. Careful attention was placed on the pedestrian realm where appropriately scaled outdoor spaces flow through the site connecting urban environment of East River with the linear park being developed along Buffalo Bayou.

The Architecture of Buffalo Bayou Park Houston, Texas

Project Size

160 Acre Park

14,692 Square Feet of Buildings

Services Provided

Master Planning / Architecture

Buffalo Bayou Park includes the part of the bayou which meanders east along Memorial Drive between Shepherd and Sabine Street in downtown Houston. Page designed two buildings and two large pavilions in the 2.3-mile, 160-acre park, which was planned and designed by landscape architecture firm, SWA. The design of the park restores the natural landscape which was adversely affected by the channelization of the bayou six decades ago and focuses on “passive” recreation and destination points, such as hike and bike trails, a dog park, event venues and food service.

The structures, from simple shade pavilions to larger amenity buildings, create landmarks and places of focus, while employing consistent architectural elements that visually connect the park from end to end between Lost Lake and Water Works. The design begins with simple concrete piers that create rhythmic, well-proportioned bays and a practical, durable structural and functional framework. Galvanized steel spanning members, cantilevered generously on all sides, form a gracious and shady canopy over the piers. Natural wood soffits and delicate louvered grills add warm color and soft light to contribute comfort and intimacy. Glass and wood infill panels contain conditioned space flexibly as required. The largest structure, the Lost Lake Building, occupies a high ridge above a re-established lake. It creates a long thin volume parallel to the lake in order to capture great vistas, nestle into mature trees, and lay amiably and naturally in its topography. At the Water Works Building the same architectural vocabulary is employed to frame an important plaza that acts as a gateway to the park.

The Architecture of Discovery Green elegantly complements the 12-acre urban park, a lush greenspace that attracts droves of visitors to a downtown district once dominated by asphalt parking lots. Set in the heart of Houston’s central business district, Discovery Green spreads luxuriantly across four city blocks in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center to the east. Discovery Green encompasses several significant architectural components, most notably a restaurant, a café, and a park administration headquarters. In addition, a parking garage hidden beneath the park accommodates 600 vehicles.

Recognized for its sustainable design with LEED Gold certification, the architecture embodies the ideals of urban placemaking that led to the creation of this highly popular inner-city oasis. The three principal buildings parallel the rows of 100-year-old trees, known as the Oak Alley, and reinforce their linear character. Each building comprises long, thin volumes and draws activity via ancillary trails that extend out into the park from both sides of the central north/south promenade. Their geometry is simple – glass boxes enclosing and intersecting with masonry boxes, allowing park visitors to quickly understand each facility’s function and easily reach their destination. The landscape-oriented buildings blend seamlessly with the outdoor environment and respect natural forces and phenomena. As a result, the buildings provide as much outdoor space as indoor space.

The park, which was designed in association with Hargreaves Associates, has transformed the perception and experience of downtown while seeding the revitalization of the surrounding urban district.

The 2nd Street District surrounds Austin City Hall and spans six city blocks, including a quarter-mile-long portion that has become a lively pedestrian-oriented retail street. The project revels in relationships between places for work, living and relaxation and in a synergy between public and private realms. The goal of the master plan was to integrate office, residential, commercial and public spaces into a coherent ensemble where each element reinforced the others. The interests of a diverse constituency including the City of Austin, multiple real estate developers, corporate occupants and a wide range of retailers had to be synthesized into a coherent, productive solution. The master plan placed City Hall in a prominent spot on the axis of Drake Bridge and created a half-block plaza on its south side oriented to Lady Bird Lake. The two office blocks flanking City Hall, designed by Page, were kept to a six-story height to provide a compatible frame for the more central, but smaller scaled public functions.

The three blocks away from the lake accommodate taller buildings and residential functions above ground floor retail. The lively collections of shops, combined with appropriate scale and rich tactile materials, gives 2nd Street a strong, urbane character. The 18-story building on the west end includes an art cinema and recreation deck in addition to residential uses. The residential/hotel building across 2nd Street from City Hall incorporates a large performance venue. With the notable and appropriate exception of City Hall, most of the buildings emphasize the longstanding role of urban structures as ‘fabric’ and draw architectural character prominently from urban design goals.

Like the city that spawned it, 70 Rainey is a dynamic blend of sophisticated elegance and laid back informality and warmth. The crisp, finely detailed 34-story residential tower is sheathed predominantly in glass curtain wall, providing each of the 164 condos with panoramic views of the Colorado River, the Austin skyline and the Hill Country beyond while also reflecting the ever-changing light and color of the big Texas sky. Generous balconies punctuate and enliven each smooth, carefully crafted facade.

As the refined residential floors of the tower merge with Rainey Street below the building revels in the quirky character of its iconic neighborhood. Upper floors provide for a variety of condo-units that range from studios to three bedrooms. The building culminates with two-story penthouses. The perfect view orientation of the upper levels, looking straight down the length of the river, twists back at the base to align with the historic street grid. This structural feat is accomplished through a stealth move that also maximizes parking in the building’s column grid.

Materials like wood, concrete and oxidized steel add a tactile dimension at pedestrian levels where porches and terraces encourage direct interaction with the street. Rich gardens on the amenity levels invite that laid-back lifestyle Austin is known for while also, along with suspended planters on the garage facades, linking the building directly the lush adjacent parkland. The building’s base responds to the dynamic street life with a variety of entries to amenity spaces including bars and restaurants that provide continuity for the culture of the street. The project iachieved an Austin Energy Green Building 4 star rating.

Located in the heart of downtown Austin, Indeed Tower re-envisions an entire block with a new tower, a renovated historic Post Office and a plaza. The new 36-story, glazed office tower will be situated on the eastern portion of the block. Its sculptural form and transparent base allow the building to make a mark on the city’s skyline while also celebrating its historic neighbor.

The Post Office is a Texas Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was constructed from 1912 to 1914 and was the seventh US post office built in Austin. The exterior of the Post Office has been restored and historic elements of the interior will also remain and be restored. Non-historic interior elements have been renovated with the intention of delivering the space in shell condition for possible uses such as creative office or retail space.

A new plaza occupies the northwest corner of the site and connects the commercial environment of the office building with cultural, recreational and retail activities in the context of the open space. The tower is oriented north-south on the site with multiple entry points at the ground level. The primary entry and lobby are on West 6th Street; an additional entry is provided on the building’s west façade via the plaza. The base is highly transparent, soaring up to 35 feet in the main lobby to allow full visibility of the Post Office’s east façade. The transparency encourages pedestrian traffic as well as the building’s integration into the street life.

The office tower provides five levels of below-grade parking; lobby and retail space at the first level; fitness, amenity, and conference spaces on levels two and three; above-grade parking garage at levels four through 15; and office spaces on levels 16 through 36. Exterior terraces are located on eight of the office levels and the top two levels enjoy penthouse roof terraces. Indeed Tower is LEED Platinum Certified.
