Houston – Transwestern today announces it has been retained to provide leasing services on behalf of The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) for its first medical office development. Transwestern Senior Vice President Lisa Bovermann is providing healthcare advisory services for the 67,200-square-foot project within the Creekside Park Village Center at the corner of Strake Drive and Rockwell Park Boulevard in The Woodlands, Texas. Construction is slated to begin at the end of 2018.
“We are extremely excited for the opportunity to work with Howard Hughes as a partner in the healthcare development arena,” said Bovermann. “The Woodlands has experienced a dramatic uptick in medical office demand due to the expansion of two major Houston hospital systems, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital and Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, which is driving increased demand for new physicians to the area. We saw this in the first quarter when absorption levels moved over 100,000 square feet. The Creekside Park project will provide physicians state-of-the-art facilities and an abundance of nearby amenities for staff.”
The Howard Hughes’ medical office development is a two-phase project adjacent to Creekside Park Village Green on the southwest side of The Woodlands master planned community. It consists of two 33,600-square-foot medical office buildings designed in a craftsman-style by PGAL, the architect. The project will be the only medical office property serving the Village of Creekside. The site, within the Creekside Park Village Center, a development of The Howard Hughes Corporation, is anchored by H-E-B and Walgreens and includes retail, restaurants, service providers and multifamily residential.
“We are pleased with our newfound partnership with Transwestern to provide healthcare leasing services in the Village of Creekside Park,” said Rip Reynolds, Vice President, Leasing and Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “It is our vision for Creekside Park Village Center to be all-encompassing, complete with medical offices and shopping, dining, and service experiences, which residents have come to look forward to, all within walking distance to their homes.”
