Enervest is making one LEED-EB project in downtown Houston, Texas very profitable. Enervest, which is an energy company based in Houston, recently expanded its headquarters offices by 37,000 square feet and renewed its lease for a total of 117,000 square feet at the First City Tower. The property is 95 percent leased with the Enervest lease deal.In this current economic climate, it is unusual to see such a large facility so full. Companies still want to be in the downtown business district despite it’s draw backs:1. More expensive office space2. Little surrounding housing for staff3. Limited parking4. Worse outdoor air qualityLEED helps overcome many of these drawbacks, that’s why we think Enervest chose this property.”First City Tower is a 1.3 million square foot, 49-story office building at 1001 Fannin St. and includes a 1,348-car parking garage. The property is LEED-EB and was the first office building in Texas to achieve this and receive a Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.”Source: Costar
