Project Description

The Risher Companies was challenged by JP Morgan Chase to identify and design an appropriate-size facility for Chase Tower in Houston, Texas that took into account a myriad of considerations, including potential future growth (planned growth built into fitness center floor of cardio and exercise floor), potential vibration from parking located above the former bank space, sense of energy (prev. dark dungeon with narrow corridor), proximity to on-site property management/Security offices, surveillance cameras, decision to launder towels in-house, manage/operate in-house (hire additional day staff to handle), hours of operation, control of use w/issuing access cards for small fee.

What resulted is a 7,200-sq.ft. fitness center that contained 45 pieces of cardio, free weights and selectorize machines, and separate locker room card access for Women’s and Men’s locker rooms.
