The Lyric Market is part of a gathering of an “all-star” group of at least 18 food vendors and four to six retailers.
Rhode Island-based Gilbane Building Co. began the project in late 2016 for Houston-based Hines, which is the property manager for the Lyric Centre. The main aspect of the project which is generating a lot of interest is the outside of the building. The Market is topped by a seven story car park, clad in brilliant LED-lit panels.
The large structural glass wall feature creates an instant impact when you look at the building and is further enhanced by the LED lighting. W&W Glass joined installer Momentum Exterior Systems of Houston to engineer and execute the vertical wall glass fin wall system. The Pilkington Planar™ system designed by W&W Glass incorporates Pilkington Optiwhite™ low-iron SentryGlas® laminated glass panels in the suspended glass fins. The walls are connected to Pilkington Optiwhite™ low-iron, 3/4″ thick tempered glass fins utilizing standard, countersunk Pilkington 905 series fitting hardware.
