Managed by Thomas Properties Group (TPG), CityWest Place Building One (CWP1) is located in the Westchase district area of Houston, Texas. CityWest Place Building One is a six-story, 308,000-square-foot office building within the CityWest Place expansive Westchase-area campus. Designed by DMJM Architects and completed in 2001, CityWest Place Building One features expansive floor plates (40,000 square feet) and provides a grand entrance to the CityWest Place complex, with an impressive circle drive entrance and a two-story entrance lobby that provides guests with an expansive view of the campus. The campus itself features extensive landscaping including reflection pools, fountains, flower gardens, and numerous pine and oak trees. Other amenities include three full-service cafes, a car-care center, a hair salon, dry cleaners, fitness centers, and much more.

CityWest Place Building One earned the ENERGY STAR largely as the result of energy-efficient features that were original design elements of the property as well as energy conservation projects that have been implemented over the last several years. Examples include electronic ballasts and T-8 lamps in light fixtures in common areas of the building; fluorescent lamps are used in downlighting fixtures as well. In addition, lighting-related energy consumption is reduced through a building design that emphasizes natural light, meaning that tenants require little artificial light during working hours. HVAC systems are another source of considerable energy savings. All of CityWest Place Building One's HVAC systems are operated through a Direct Digital Control system, and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are used on air handling units and other mechanical equipment, allowing them to run at speeds commensurate with actual demand. Furthermore, chilled water connections to other buildings in the complex allow load-shedding during times of particularly high cooling demand. Finally, and more generally, Thomas Properties Group employees are educated in the value of energy conservation, helping to create a cooperative atmosphere with a shared goal of saving energy.

Thomas Properties, the EPA's ENERGY STAR continued Partner of the Year in 2001, 2002 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009, as well as the recipient of the EPA's Sustained Excellence in Energy Management award in 2004, is proud to participate in the ENERGY STAR program, considering it an aid to leasing, and a sound and responsible business decision.
