The Soto is the first mass-timber office building in Texas, and a model for sustainable design and construction. The building includes ground floor retail, with 25,100-sf office floor plates rising six levels above the street. Parking is provided at 3:1000/RSF, including executive parking in a below-grade structure. Multi-tenant spaces are built over raised floor, which supports underfloor air distribution. This allows for more flexibility in planning and greater tenant comfort, and preserves the warmth of the exposed wood ceilings without the visual clutter of overhead air ducts. The project was designed to achieve LEED certification.
