HOUSTON | 1801 Smith (600 Jefferson) | 312 FT | 20 FLOORS (REDEVELOPMENT)

Project in Brief: This 20-story tower was originally completed in 1972 as part of the larger Cullen Center complex. It has housed various entities over it's existence, most recently home to personnel from United Airlines who also had offices in the nearby 1600 Smith tower. Although it was renovated in 2017, keeping office tenants was an issue after United's departure. The tower was sold in 2021 to John Quinlan, a local attorney who also owns the adjacent 500 Jefferson tower. Construction is now underway to convert it to a residential structure.

From the architect

The project is a renovation of a 20-story office building in downtown Houston into luxury apartments.

The tower will include 372-units with amenities including an interior pool, fitness, yoga, and multipurpose meeting spaces. The second floor will house leasing, a large club room, and have two-story townhouse units. Select third story units will have outdoor patios. The basement will include a speakeasy gathering space for use by building occupants.

The project is a terminus for the raised corridor system in downtown and connected above street level for access to adjacent buildings.

The project is slated to be complete in the second quarter of 2023.

Work is now underway for the conversion.
