MetroNational, the Houston-based, privately-held real estate investment, development, and management company, announced today that construction is underway for their latest Class-A office building at 9753 Katy Freeway, situated at the southwest corner of Katy Freeway and Bunker Hill. Adjacent to the reimagined Lawn at Memorial City and new luxury high-rise, The McKinley, 9753 Katy Freeway completes a new mixed-use urban development, offering tenants a vibrant and curated mix of nearby restaurants, hotels, retail and entertainment. The new office building is projected for completion in Q2 of 2023.
The Next Generation of Office Space
As the newest addition to Memorial City’s evolving 10 million square-foot campus, 9753 Katy Freeway is defining a new approach to the future of office buildings. Originally envisioned for construction in early 2020, MetroNational seized the opportunity during the pandemic to reimagine the workplace experience and redeveloped their vision for 9753 Katy Freeway.
Designed by Kirksey Architecture, the 190,000 square-foot, contemporary nine-story Class-A office building will serve as a beacon for companies seeking a resilient and engaging workplace environment. The main features of the modern grand, two-story lobby will be a 27-foot art wall, which will serve as a backdrop to a uniquely patterned terrazzo floor. The glass facade of the building will create a cohesive look with surrounding structures and become an architectural presence in Memorial City’s skyline.
Facilitating employers’ ability to attract and retain talent, 9753 will feature unparalleled, experience-focused amenities including a full-service tenant engagement building application, first-floor restaurant and retail spaces, convenient access to the Memorial City Club luxury fitness center, as well as the new Lawn greenspace for entertainment and community events. The building is also representative of Metronational’s longstanding commitment to wellness and sustainability by tracking LEED® Silver and WELL™ Building Standards.
Beyond The Work Experience
The office building’s desirable location offers an unmatched place to work, live, and be entertained with popular restaurants, shopping, and luxury high-rise residences at its doorstep. 9753 Katy Freeway – a 190,000-square-foot building with a floor plate of approximately 22,605 rentable square feet – is located steps away from the 30,000 square-foot Lawn at Memorial City, which offers visitors, residents, and office workers a lush, inviting landscape and dynamic schedule of public programming.
In addition to The Lawn, 9753 Katy Freeway is part of the 4-acre mixed-use development project that also includes The McKinley, a luxury residential tower that is the tallest multi-family tower west of Uptown Houston.
