Downtown Houston Office Conversion Study
To begin shaping an adaptive reuse incentive program, Downtown Houston+ worked with a consultant to conduct a feasibility study of selected buildings located within the Downtown Houston boundaries of the DRA. This first phase of this process laid the groundwork for an Office Conversion Program, designed to incentivize the rehabilitation and repurposing of underutilized office space in downtown buildings within the boundaries of the DRA. The completed study is intended to assist participating property owners in understanding potential project feasibility for multiple adaptive reuse scenarios once the program is formed, authorized by the DRA Board, and approved by Houston City Council. These scenarios will provide a means to identify and appropriately assess the efficacy of the currently known financing tools that may be utilized to bridge capital or operational funding gaps related to office building conversions.
