The Office/Retail shells are sets of office buildings located in Northwest Houston, grouped in either sets of two or four. Each individual pod has the exact same structural layout for ease of repetitive construction. Covered walkways connect the pods with each group.
The structure consists of underreamed drilled piers and a slab-on-grade. Each building has a high roof designed specifically for covering mechanical units to be placed on the roofs.
