Occupancy for Class A Office Campus Boosted 16%

March 08, 2023

HOUSTON – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) and Griffin Partners announce Loop Central, a three-building office campus exclusively leased by Executive Managing Director Doug Little, Senior Vice President Kelli Gault and Vice President Jack Scharnberg, is outpacing West Loop Class A average occupancy by 9.8%, making it a standout among properties in the submarket. Several transactions, totaling 110,050 square feet, boosted tenancy at the 574,944-square-foot Class A asset by 16.1%.

Community Health Choice Texas, Inc. (Community), a nonprofit managed care organization, signed a new 82,706-square-foot lease for four full floors at Loop Central I, driving the significant occupancy boost. Transwestern’s Kelli Gault, Jack Scharnberg, and Doug Little, and David Baker represented the landlord, Griffin Partners. Community was represented by David Boyd, CCIM, SIOR of Boyd Commercial and Lucian Bukowski of CBRE.

“Loop Central was a good option for Community to consider because of its ideal commute location, proximity to tenant amenities, competitive economics, visibility and parking options,” said Bukowski. “Although the transaction was complex, we enjoyed working with Griffin Partners, along with Doug and Kelli at Transwestern, to secure a good deal that met the needs of both parties.”

Loop Central underwent extensive renovations in 2020, which included an upgraded fitness center, full-service café/deli, wi-fi-equipped tenant lounge, full-service conference facility with kitchen, and multiple indoor and outdoor seating options offering co-working options and entertainment.

“A unique attribute of Loop Central is its location,” said Gault. “Situated on the brink of the Galleria and Greenway submarkets just inside I-610, Loop Central offers tenants the ability to access all the amenities these submarkets have to offer within minutes. Additionally, the property’s proximity to several of Houston’s major thoroughfares allows tenants the convenience of easy ingress and egress without dealing with the traffic congestion considered typical in these submarkets.” 

With a parking ratio exceeding 3.5 per 1,000 square feet, Loop Central is situated near Houston’s primary transportation arteries and immediately adjacent to the I-69/I-610 interchange, a connection point for two of Texas’ most-traveled highways. The interchange is part of a $259 million improvement project by TX DOT to improve safety and mobility while reducing congestion.
