SEAHOLM POWER PLANT REDEVELOPMENT // Austin, TX // 810,000 sf The 7.8-acre Seaholm site, with its historic power plant building, has been transformed into a vibrant mixed-use project that will be the heart of the new Seaholm District downtown neighborhood. Along with the rejuvenation of the historic landmark, a 128,000 sf power plant building, the project includes a 30-story, 615,000 sf residential tower, and a two-story, 67,000 sf retail and office building surrounding a one-acre public plaza. Though the conversion of a brownfield site and the adaptive reuse of a historic building are inherently sustainable, the team has been committed to integrating sustainable concepts in all aspects of the design and construction of the project. The power plant building and the retail and office building have achieved LEED GoldÂŽ while all three buildings are AEGB Four-Star.

REGIONS FINANCIAL CENTER // Houston, TX // 200,000 sf The Regions Financial Center is a high-rise, mixed-use building near the Greenway Plaza business district in Houston, Texas. The project consists of 180,000 sf of office in an 11-story tower, as well as 10,000 sf of retail space at the ground level with an adjacent plaza, and a 200,000 sf parking garage. The new business center takes advantage of Houston’s Transit Corridor planning requirements in anticipation of METRO’s University Line.

FOSHAN NEW CENTURY WOMEN’S AND CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL // Foshan, Guangdong, China // 368,075 sf STG Design has completed the design of the New Century Healthcare Group’s Foshan Women’s and Children’s Hospital, with construction scheduled to begin in 2018. Located in Foshan City, China, in the rapidly growing Guangdong Province, the design of this 137-bed hospital reflects its mission: to focus on mothers and children. Two towers, situated above a podium base, function as patient rooms with the 4-story tower for children and the 8-story tower for women, whose floors include hotel-like suites, a full spa with a beauty shop, lounges and private dining, theatre, fitness space, and a demonstration kitchen. The 3-stories of podium base include large women’s and children’s clinics, pharmacy, registration and administration, a dining and lounge area. The hospital’s plazas, sunken landscaped courtyards, and rooftop gardens all reflect the city’s reputation as a “Garden City.”

SKYLOFT // Austin, TX // 422,000 sf Situated near The University of Texas at Austin in the heart of West Campus, this 18 story high-rise features first-class amenities and elevated views of Austin. Completed in August 2018 with 100% occupancy, the 442,000 sf building houses 677 beds in 212 units, with a mix of 1-4 bedroom floor plans. The building’s amenities include a rooftop pool, fitness center, study lounges, media room, and 3 stories of secure underground parking. This project is a collaboration between STG Design and Mark Hart Architecture, and JE Dunn Construction.

NATIONAL INSTRUMENTS // Austin, TX // 65-acres National Instruments’ 65-acre campus is sited to include the headquarters building, office building, manufacturing, and Research & Development divisions as well as two parking garages. The manufacturing facility, with generous natural lighting on the production floor, includes a cafeteria and training facility. The eight-story R&D building features a multi-media conference suite, briefing center, a 200-seat cafÊ with an outdoor terrace, a fully equipped fitness center, an interactive customer education training wing and a five-story, and 635-car garage.

CALLAWAY HOUSE AUSTIN // Austin, TX // 588,000 sf The Callaway House Austin is a student residence building located in West Campus only one block from The University of Texas at Austin. The 17-story high rise is one of the largest student housing buildings with approximately 219 units and over 650 parking spaces. Amenities in the project include a 500 seat dining hall with full commercial kitchen and food servery, lounge & gaming area, computer center and theater at the street level. At the top of the parking structure, there is a 2,500 sf fitness center and outdoor pool and sundeck that overlook the campus, with a quiet study deck tucked away where residents can enjoy great views of downtown. The project is located within the City of Austin’s “University Neighborhood Overlay” zoning, which allows increased height and density in exchange for urban design requirements as well as an affordable housing component. Accelerated construction of the Callaway House Austin allowed for occupancy three months ahead of schedule. This project, completed in 2013, is LEED Certified.

48 EAST // Austin, TX // 280,000 sf Currently still in planning, 48 East is a 33-story point tower situated on the edge of downtown in the burgeoning Rainey Street District with views Lady Bird Lake and the downtown skyline. The concept of ‘urban nature’ draws inspiration from Austin’s casual culture and the two distinct landscapes through implied movement, the use of natural and urban materials, and proportional geometry. The building will consist of 215 for-sale luxury condominiums, each with balcony access, amenities and structured parking. Estimated completion is Fall 2020.

DESIGN STUDY XV // Austin, TX // 125,000 sf The client selected the architects to perform a design study for a high-tech client interested in developing a build-to-suit corporate headquarters. The 10-floor, articulated, glass façade is an expression of the beehive-like, highly energetic activity just beneath that surface. This diaphanous skin provides both transparency and visual connectivity to the community. The two-story lobby is designed as an open-function space where local creatives, performers, and artists can host events for building tenants and community gatherings. This multi-tenant, 125,000 sf structure is capped with a rooftop terrace providing 360-degree views of the Texas State Capitol and the central Texas landscape. Preservation of a grove of majestic, “heritageâ€? trees at the building base was a significant driving force of the design plan and thus its chiseled form.

CAPITOL TERRACE STUDY // Austin, TX // 200,000 sf Just a few blocks from the Texas State Capitol, this study was completed for a 200,000 sf mixed-use tower in downtown Austin. The proposed plan featured 13 floors with ground floor retail space, four levels of above-grade parking, four floors of office, and four floors of residential units. The building massing is primarily shaped by the Capitol View Corridor that cuts diagonally across the site, significantly limiting the height of the Southern half of the building. To achieve an advantage of the site limitations, the design incorporates a verdant split-level roof terrace at the 9th and 10th floors planned to offer almost 11,000 sf of prime outdoor program area with expansive views south to downtown and the Capitol Dome.

NASHVILLE CONVENTION CENTER // Nashville, TN // Convention space The overall vision for the project was to provide a highly visual and interactive experience for both the visitor and the tenants of the development. The concept begins with responding to its surroundings and the fluid shapes of the Arena, the Music City Center and the historical context of Lower Broadway. The constant movement of pedestrians along Broadway, seeing a concert at the Ryman and other venues create a flow of energy and a dynamic that drives an architectural response that should be fluid and dynamic as well. At approximately 350,000 sf of shops, restaurant and Galleria space, the three-level development would become the foundation and base for the entire block. The 550,000 sf office tower will provide a significant presence to the downtown skyline while providing space and clearance to a 450-room hotel offering a new landmark and signature to the downtown skyline.

BLOCK 71 // Austin, TX // 686,000 sf Planned as a mixed-use office, hotel, and multi-family complex to accommodate The University of Texas at Austin, the site features a historic courthouse which would be converted into a retail space, anchoring the surrounding structures. The site includes a meeting and conference center to be shared between all of the buildings on the site. The developed land, currently underutilized by The University of Texas, would allow the development to lease the properties for 99 years.
