CBRE Tackling Leasing for 28-Story Office Tower in Houston

CBRE will handle leasing for a 28-story, 375,000-square-foot, Class-A office building planned by Skanska USA Commercial Development in downtown Houston adjacent to Discovery Green urban park. CBRE’s Kristen Rabel, Parker Duffie and Joel Douthit are the leasing agents representing the landlord for 1550 on the Green. The trophy office building at 1550 Lamar will anchor Discovery West, a three-block, master-planned district that Skanska is developing. This is the first tower project in Texas designed by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. It will showcase a forward-looking design focused on sustainability and tenant wellness to achieve LEED® Platinum certification. With spacious pedestrian walkways and outdoor terraces, the building will offer views of Discovery Green, the largest green space in the Houston CBD. The tower will also cater to tenants’ evolving needs through smart building technology, flexible workplace solutions and walkable retail amenities. It is located near attractions such as Minute Maid Park, The Toyota Center and the George R. Brown Convention Center. 1550 on the Green recently secured global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP as it anchor tenant that will obtain naming rights upon occupancy. CBRE’s Jon Lee and Craig Beyer represented Norton Rose Fulbright in the leasing transaction. The building will break ground this year, with completion expected in 2024.
