Lyric Center Building

Recommended Posts

Guest gcbrewer2

Does anyone know what year the Lyric Center was built?

Also, does anyone know the name of the white building about 30 floors, located somewhere between the Lyric center and the JPMorgan Chase tower? When viewed from the west, it has rectangular windows in the center of the building that are longer vertically than horizontally. The windows on the north and south edges are more square shaped. It is relatively new and I don't see any info on it in the list of downtown buildings?

Been away from Houston for a while so any help would be appriciated.

I was thinking the Calpine Buidling too. That building was compelted in 2003 I believe and was developed by Hines for Calpine Energy. During the construction of the building Calpine went through some turmoil and nearly defaulted on many of their loans. They managed to survive but when the building was completed Calpine only physically occupied 1/2 of the SF they had leased. So when the building came on line there was some 200k SF on the SubLease market. I am not sure the occupancy of the building today.

I tried to find what year the Lyric Center was built. It was sometime between 81-83. I will keep looking to see if I can find you for you.

Thanks everybody. I have my answers. Lyric was finished in 1984. The other building I was talking about is Calpine. I just didn't recognize it from the photo on the buildings page.

I really like this building. Believe the parking garage was just recently remodeled/fixed due to Harvey.

Saw a huge crane boom from a distance. Turns out they are doing chiller replacements. Huge crane with 578' of boom. Largest lift is the chiller itself at 13,000 lbs.
