Location: Houston, Texas
The John P. McGovern Texas Medical Center Commons is located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center. The Commons includes a four-level above grade and two-level below grade parking facility. It contains a food court and service spaces on the ground level. The roof level includes Trevisio, a fine dining restaurant, as well as a conference center and prefunction/breakfast meeting rooms, a lounge, retail space, offices and a roof terrace. Along the perimeter of the curved roof promenade is a shallow pool of water that cascades over the side of the structure, forming a 55 foot high wall of water, concealing the parking behind it and landing in a pool below with fountain features at the ground level.
