HOUSTON - Hines is set for an extensive modernization and repositioning of the 26-story Two Shell Plaza.

As part of the renovation, the property's main entrance will move to Louisiana St. from Walker, and will be renamed 811 Louisiana. Construction will begin in April 2014 to renovate the building’s facade as well as update and expand the lobby. The project is slated to be complete by April 2015.

The 565,538-sf Two Shell Plaza and its larger sister property, the 50-story One Shell Plaza were completed in the early 1970s. Two Shell Plaza's facade will be renovated to differentiate it from sister building, One Shell Plaza.

Downtown Houston, which has a Class A office vacancy rate of 7.5 percent, has a considerable amount of redevelopment and renovation activity. A few blocks from Two Shell Plaza, Hines recently began speculative construction on 609 Main, a 48-story, 1 million-sf office tower scheduled to deliver in 2017.
