Taking a page from local developer Harwood, it looks like Hillwood decided to throw its hat into the green development ring with One Victory Park. 1VP is a 20-story, 450,000 square-foot, LEED-Silver office building slated for completion in 2008. I’ve read a few conflicting reports on the actual details of the building, so we’ll have to watch and really determine the true specs. Hines + Hillwood will be co-developing the project, which includes a Two Victory Park that seems identical to 1VP. Boka Powell is the lead architect with Austin Commercial as the general contractor.
1VP already has a tenant for six floors of the building. Haynes and Boone recently announced that it would relocate from the Bank of America tower (tenant of 22 years), retaining Gensler as the interior design architect. A recent news article pointed to suggestions that all the offices would be the same size, meaning senior and junior attorneys would be indistinguishable according to office size. Why? Efficiency and money savings. Use your imagination on this one. Image via.
