Here’s what Amegy Bank’s new headquarters will look like

Construction is moving along on Amegy Bank N.A.’s new headquarters tower near the Galleria.

The 350,000-square-foot tower broke ground in November, according to Amegy, and the first rendering was released this week. Completion is expected in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The new headquarters building will give Amegy room to grow, the bank told the Houston Business Journal in March.

Amegy bought the 4-acre site at 1717 W. Loop South, the former home of Micro Center, in early 2014. Micro Center has since moved to its new location just south of Highway 59 and outside the 610 Loop.

Amegy will move its corporate offices, currently located in Post Oak Park, and its Galleria banking center to the new building. The bank expects to house 500 employees there and occupy the majority of the building, though 97,912 square feet is available for lease. Cushman & Wakefield’s Houston office served as Amegy’s commercial real estate broker and also is leasing the available space.



Houston-based Hines is the development/project manager, Connecticut-based Pickard Chilton is the building design architect, Houston-based Kendall Heaton is the production architect, and San Francisco-based Gensler is the interiors architect.

Amegy Bank is the fifth-largest financial institution in the Houston area, according to Houston Business Journal research, with $9.98 billion in total local deposits as of June 30. Amegy’s parent is Salt Lake City-based Zions Bancorporation (Nasdaq: ZION).
