Managed by Hines, 2707 North Loop West is a 10-story, 182,440-square-foot office building located within Houston's North Loop West submarket--near the northwest corner of Houston's innermost loop road system. Designed by the firm of Morris and Aubry Architects and completed in 1982, 2707 North Loop West is clad in horizontal bands of gray granite alternating with dual-pane black reflective glass. Vertical setbacks on the east and west fa?ades help 2707 North Loop West maximize the use of its site, provide visual interest, and create interior layouts with a wealth of corner offices.


2707 North Loop West earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as a result of active building energy management and a series of infrastructure retrofits conducted in 2008. Given the region's scorching summer weather, the HVAC systems at 2707 North Loop West were a significant focus of the retrofit process. All 10 of the building's air handling units were replaced, with the new units including high-efficiency coils and variable frequency drives (VFDs) that help them run at speeds closely tied to actual demand. A new cooling tower with VFD drives and a full set of high-efficiency chillers and pumps were also installed, and a new outside air unit with a VFD was added as well. A particular benefit of the new HVAC systems is the ability for building managers to run the building without chillers on days when outside temperatures permit. On the lighting side, a new lighting control system was installed, and lighting was retrofitted to T8 fluorescents with electronic ballasts. Finally, all of the building's restrooms were retrofitted with low-flow fixtures, and a new, high-efficiency domestic water pumping system was installed.
