Houston – Transwestern today announces it has been retained by Brookfield to provide leasing services for Houston Center, an iconic mixed-use campus in Houston’s Central Business District comprised of 4.2 million square feet of office and retail space.

The office leasing team includes Executive Vice President David Baker, Vice President Kelli Gault, Managing Director Doug Little and Senior Vice President Debbie Wilson. Meanwhile, Managing Director Nick Hernandez, Senior Vice President Crystal Allen and Senior Associate Kim Bernick will handle the retail leasing.

“We are honored to have been chosen to work alongside the visionary leaders at Brookfield to lease this signature project,” said Kevin Roberts, Transwestern’s Southwest President. “Contributing to the repositioning of Houston Center is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, and we look forward to providing extraordinary results for Brookfield. Houston Center is in one of the most dynamic areas of downtown, which has seen a tremendous revitalization, attracting new businesses and creating a compelling environment for both tenants and visitors.”
