Description: II Hallbrook Place is a speculative office building on a 10.7 acre tract of land west of State Line Road in Leawood, Kansas. The building is located to the east and uphill from One Hallbrook Place (completed in 2000). This project continues the successful development of the office park adjacent to the Hallbrook Country Club and Golf Course.

II Hallbrook Place is composed of a four-story, 115,000 square foot building structure at the top of a sloped landscaped grade that follows the site's western edge. The building orientation allows interior spaces to command outstanding views of the surrounding golf course and exclusive residential areas. The interior features symmetrical, fan shaped floor plates that provide for large clear span office areas and exterior wall offsets which create a variety of corner office opportunities.

The building is clad in a combination of brick, ribbon window glazing and a metal panel system with freestanding architectural concrete columns. A cylindrical glass vestibule on the west side leads out to a fountain and waterfall feature at street level. The entrances and first floor lobby are finished with porcelain tile floors and walls, stainless steel and wood accents. They lead to the tempered glass and stainless steel grand stair enclosure, finished with Vermont slate treads and flooring up to the second floor lobby.

II Hallbrook Place achieved LEED Silver certification in January, 2010. Environmental features of the project include the use of regional, recycled content and low-VOC building materials; recycling of construction waste; a high efficiency heating and cooling system; and extensive, water-efficient landscaping. The building also has guidelines in place to encourage sustainable commercial interiors build-out of tenant spaces.
