Houston – Regent Properties and Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announce that Ryan LLC has leased 66,750 square feet at Park Towers, 1233 W. Loop S. in Houston’s Uptown/Galleria submarket. Transwestern Managing Director Doug Little, Executive Vice President David Baker, Vice President Kelli Gault and Associate Jack Scharnberg provided agency leasing services on behalf of the landlord, Regent Properties.

“We are thrilled that the Ryan team is relocating to Park Towers,” said Matthew Benbassat, Chief Operating Officer at Regent. “Park Towers exemplifies Regent’s vision of providing our tenants with an amenity-rich environment that will allow their employees to produce at their highest levels.”

Park Towers is a Class A, 545,242-square-foot office property comprised of two 272,621-square-foot, 18-story buildings. The space boasts a high-performance fitness facility, tech-savvy conference center, in-building dining and soon-to-be-completed lobby renovations. The location is abundant with walkable amenities at the nearby Uptown Park shopping center and has excellent proximity and a paved walkway to Memorial Park.
