Weston Urban, KDC select Pelli Clarke Pelli to lead design for the Frost Tower

plans and maps on the tableInternationally renowned architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli has been selected by Weston Urban and KDC to lead design for the first downtown office development in three decades.

The Frost Tower, slated to begin construction in fall 2016, will be approximately 400,000 square feet and designed with input from locally based Alamo Architects. Based out of New Haven, Connecticut, Pelli Clarke Pelli has designed towers across the world, from the International Finance Center in Hong Kong, the World Financial Center in New York to the Petronas Towers in Malaysia.

But aside from doing work around the globe, the architecture firm also has ties here in Texas. Fred Clarke, a senior principal of Pelli Clarke Pelli, was born in El Campo and is a graduate of the University of Texas, and Bill Butler, a principal of the firm, was born and raised in San Antonio and is a graduate of Rice University.

Both Clarke and Butler will lead the design for the project.

Cullen/Frost Bankers Inc. President Phil Green said the bank supports Weston Urban’s selection, and said that they are thrilled to be keeping their headquarters downtown as the supporting tenant in what he called an iconic building designed by a world-renowned architecture firm.

On the development team for the tower project, which is expected to finish construction by 2018 or 2019, Texas-based KDC will partner with Weston Urban.
