The building is centrally located in Houston, between the Texas Medical Center and downtown Houston. Construction time to completion is approximately two years and substantial occupancy is expected to be achieved within two years of completion. The total project cost is approximately USD ~130 million, of which ROY is contributing USD 29 million in equity. The construction costs are secured through a guaranteed maximum price contract.
