Howard Hughes Welcomes Oil Firm at Houston Skyscraper

The Howard Hughes Corp. has announced that Western Midstream Partners has signed a 133,948-square-foot lease in a Class A+ office high rise at The Woodlands Towers at The Waterway in Houston. The company will occupy five floors in the 31-story skyscraper. Cushman & Wakefield assisted the tenant, while Colliers International represented the owner. This commitment brings the 595,000-square-foot building to an occupancy rate of 35 percent. The tenant is expected to move into the tower in November, with the owner providing temporary space as early as April. Later this year, Howard Hughes will also relocate from its Dallas headquarters to The Woodlands. Located at 9950 Woodloch Forest Drive, the LEED Silver-certified building was completed in 2014. Amenities include a lobby cafe, two-level fitness facility with a basketball and volleyball court, conference rooms and a 33,000-square-foot rooftop terrace. Situated close to Interstate 45, the high-rise is 20 miles from George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Click to read more at
