CityPlace 2

Spring, Texas, USA


Approximately 20 miles north of downtown Houston lies the forward-thinking, master-planned Springwoods Village community. Nestled in the heart of the village is CityPlace, which is designed to be a mixed-use community that unifies work, life, sustainability and technology. CityPlace 2, a 10-story 327,000-square-foot office building, also includes ground-floor retail and is a standout in this unique area.

Kawneer and Houston-based Dynamic Glass worked with architects from Gensler's Houston office to deliver solutions that provided a sleek aesthetic, while contributing to the performance and sustainability of the building. Kawneer's 2500 UT Unitwall™ System was used on the building due to its seamless look and capability to be pre-fabricated and  installed within the project's tight timeframe. To maintain the streamlined aesthetic but add a unique element, 8-inch extended face covers were added to the north side of the façade. Kawneer's 1600 Wall System™5 Curtain Wall was also selected and factory fabricated for enhanced daylighting and cost savings on field labor.
 
Currently home to Houston-based American Bureau of Shipping among others, CityPlace 2 is registered with the certification goal of LEED Silver®, has achieved its design and performance goals, and is a focal point for the community.
