HOUSTON — Ziegler Cooper Architects and Basic Builders are renovating 5300 Memorial Drive, an 11-story, 153,000-square-foot office building in Houston. Built in 1983 and renovated in 1993, the building’s common areas, including its entry, ground floor lobby, elevator lobbies and cabs, corridors and restrooms will be remodeled and modernized. Improvements will include a new building monument sign, lobby coffee bar, hotel-grade restroom finishes and LED lighting in common areas.
