Galleria North Tower 1
13737 Noel Road
Dallas, TX 75240
Owned by Franklin Street Properties, developed and managed by Hines, and designed by the Dallas architectural firm of Halderman Powell+Partners, this Class AA 378,000-square-foot, 17-story office building is the home of Tenet Healthcare corporation's regional headquarters. The project was completed in December 1999 and is 100 percent occupied. The property boasts such amenities as a beautifully landscaped courtyard that extends the full length of the building with a fountain at the west end, executive parking in the basement, a delicatessen with a large seating area, and outside terrace dining. The terrace is located on the second level with laid-in stone, trees, and flowers, all accented with river rocks on both sides of the concourse walkway glass. The building is located at the intersection of LBJ Freeway (635) and the Dallas North Tollway. Galleria North Tower I was part of a two-building project that, like the Galleria Shopping Centre, added another landmark to the Dallas skyline.
Galleria North Tower I earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as a result of retrofits, operating parameters, and high efficiency design. Although the base building lighting system was of high efficiency design, devices were added to control all of the site lighting, dock lighting, terrace lighting, and garage lighting. The garage, tenant floor lobby, and common restroom lighting were retrofitted. The two 650 York Millennium chillers are equipped with variable frequency drives (VFDs) which vary the energy output to the machine according to its demand. The custom-built air handler units on each floor have fixed pitch fans with variable speed drive controllers and are capable of providing up to 25,000 cfm of conditioned air to the occupied space. The outside air handler unit has the ability to provide 50,000 cfm of pre-conditioned fresh air make-up and is equipped with a vairable speed drive controller. The cooling towers are of the closed cell up-draft design. Each cell has six fans for a total of 12, which are controlled by VFDs. The HVAC equipment is monitered and controlled by the Siemen's Apogee Insight BCMS system. Effeciency in design and operation results in lower operating cost.
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.
