August 07, 2020

Houston – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces NewSouth Window Solutions has leased two suites at 15120 Northwest Freeway and 6961 Brookhollow W. Drive at Park 8 | 290 in Houston. Transwestern’s Carter Thurmond, Brian Gammill and Jude Filippone provided agency leasing services on behalf of the landlord, Blue Ridge Industrial® (BRI), which acquired the office/warehouse park in fourth quarter 2019.

“Park 8 | 290 provides NewSouth Window Solutions with great access and visibility to make a successful entry into the Houston market,” said Thurmond. “The park’s accommodations, strategic location and strong image were important factors in the tenant’s decision to lease the space, and we look forward to NewSouth calling Park 8 | 290 its Houston home for years to come.”

The seven-year lease marks the Florida company’s first expansion into the Texas market and encompasses a portion of two separate buildings within the Class A office/warehouse park. Now 90% leased, Park 8 | 290 is made up of five rear-load buildings totaling 185,850 square feet and offers some of the best visibility in Houston’s Northwest submarket, including direct access to Beltway 8 and Highway 290. The property also boasts ample parking, loading capabilities and access to a strong customer base, with 1.3 million people within a 10-mile radius.

David Needle of Florida Executive Realty Management Corp. provided tenant representation services on behalf of NewSouth Window Solutions.
