HOUSTON - Hines, the firm that developed the tallest office tower in Texas, is expanding the size of its skyscraper proposal for a major scale office tower on Main St.

Hines confirmed that the development company was planning to build a Class A 41-story tower with 815,000 sf at 609 Main St. However, the project is now planned to be a much larger building with high-grade amenities.

Hines is moving ahead quickly and the tower is expected to be Houston’s next completed skyscraper.

“Because of demand, the building’s size is expected to grow from the initial 815,000 sf concept,” said John Mooz, senior managing director in Hines’ Southwest Regional Office.

The height and size of the building won’t be finalized until fourth quarter of this year when design of the tower will be finished.

Hines is expected to break ground before the other proposed Houston skyscrapers: The Market Square area building by Linbeck/Essex/Stream, the Skanska project at 811 Rusk and the proposed Chevron building at 1600 Louisiana.

The building will be located at the southeast corner of Main and Texas Ave. The Hines site is known as Block 69.
