Jones|Carter and Savills Studley Come Together to Make the Houston Chronicle’s Deal of the Week
Jones|Carter will be consolidating our offices in The Woodlands to a new space in June that will better allow us to enhance lives through engineering excellence for the city of Houston and our employees! The news was featured in the Houston Chronicle as the Deal of the Week, highlighting the collaboration between J|C and Savills Studley on this move.
We will be relocating from two single-story buildings on Research Forest Drive where there was no room to expand, to offices on the fourth and first floors of the six-story Sierra Pines II building at 1575 Sawdust Road. The lease includes 27,025 square feet of office space.
“When you move into a larger building, there are more opportunities for growth and expansion as the need arises,” says Derrell Curry, executive vice president and Houston co-branch manager of Savills Studley.
“It was a perfect time for Jones|Carter to be in the market,” Curry said. “Since we did the transaction, the market has actually improved. We would not get the same deal we got then, today.”
Brad Fricks of Stream Realty Partners represented the landlord, a partnership between VEREIT and Stream Realty. The deal brings the 153,809-square-foot building, which is home to Veriforce and London Offshore, to 61 percent leased.
Savills Studley recently negotiated other leases for Jones|Carter in Austin as well as its headquarters relocation to 6330 West Loop South in 2015. J|C has other area offices at 22330 Merchants Way in Katy and 6415 Reading Road in Rosenberg. The Woodlands office will house 110 of our 350 Houston-area employees.
