Owned and managed by Hines, Chase Tower is a 55-story, 1.4 million-square-foot office tower in the Midtown/Arts District area of central Dallas. Completed in 1987 and designed by the firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Chase Tower is a distinctive component of the Dallas skyline, with a pink granite exterior, a curved glass crown, and a striking seven-story keyhole that punctuates the building near the top. A sky lobby with fountains and breathtaking views is one tenant amenity; ample parking, in a six-story garage beneath the building and an adjacent 14-story above-ground structure, is another.
Chase Tower earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as the result of extensive retrofitting to the building's energy-consuming infrastructure, including both lighting and HVAC--the latter a particularly significant energy driver in scorching Texas summers. Lighting retrofits included the installation of high-efficiency fluorescent lights in building common areas and the use of occupancy sensors to reduce the use of lighting in spaces that are not in continuous use. On the HVAC side, thermal storage is used to enable off-peak load shedding, while variable frequency drives on air handling units help to keep fans running at speeds that closely match actual demand. In addition, these air handling units are centrally controlled, allowing them to be turned off outside of regular hours.
Hines has been recognized with multiple ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence and Partner of the Year awards. For a summary of the firm's participation in the ENERGY STAR program and other sustainability information, visit www.hines.com/sustainability.
