Houston: 600,000-SF Billiton Tower underway, fully leasedHouston: 600,000-SF Billiton Tower underway, fully leasedhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=60942013-10-08T09:22:00Z2013-10-08T07:45:00Z

HOUSTON - BHP Billiton Tower, a 600,000-sf Class A office tower has begun construction in the Uptown District. The 23-story structure is being built on 2.72 acres within the Four Oaks Place office complex at the former site of a 24-Hour fitness on Post Oak Blvd.

The development is 100 percent preleased to BHP Billiton. The structure, which will have 594,000 rentable sf, will consolidate the company’s U.S. employees — now scattered in 4 Oaks Place, downtown Houston and Tulsa, Okla.

BHP Billiton Petroleum currently has 1,800 employees in Houston and plans to have about 2,000 in the new structure by the time it is completed in October 2016. The company is a subsidiary of Australian oil giant BHP Billiton Group.

Features of the building include a skybridge that connects the new building to the 1360 Post Oak tower and a garage-roof garden on level eight.

The developer for the project is Transwestern, which also handles the leasing for 4 Oaks Place, and TIAA-CREF owns the building.
