Manhattan To Build City of Houston Central Permitting Center
HOUSTON, Texas – Manhattan Construction Co. has been awarded the City of Houston Central Permitting Center project valued at approximately $25 million. As Construction Manager at Risk, Manhattan will convert a 100-year old rice warehouse, located on the northwest edge of downtown Houston, into a multi-department office building. The building is located on a 2.45 acre site and has a total of 190,000 square feet with four stories above grade. The project team is seeking U.S. Green Building Council LEED® Certification for this project.
This building will serve as the City of Houston’s One Stop Permitting Center and will be the permanent location of the City of Houston’s Green Building Resource Center. The Green Building Resource Center will provide a chance for citizens to have their plans reviewed for opportunities to add green strategies to save energy, save water and make their projects more sustainable and efficient.
The project architect is Studio Red Architects.
