September 29, 2022

HOUSTON – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces it has been retained for property management services at 1500 Citywest, a 192,313-square-foot Class A office building in Houston’s Westchase submarket.

This comes after Transwestern was named leasing agent on January 1, 2022. The leasing team has inked 38,193 square-feet of office leases in the first half of 2022. Executive Managing Director Doug Little and Senior Vice Presidents Kelli Gault and Louann Pereira provided agency leasing services and represented the landlord, BioUrja Group, in the transactions.

“The leasing success at 1500 CityWest proves that the Westchase office submarket is gaining leasing momentum. We are excited to partner with the new ownership of BioUrja and continue to add value and tenants at 1500 CityWest,” said Pereira.

1500 CityWest began in the first quarter of 2022 with an occupancy rate of 65% and as of the third quarter of 2022 is at 87% occupancy. The team is now marketing the entire 6th floor to potential new tenants.

Located in the heart of the up-and-coming Westchase District, this property features an easy ingress/egress, above-standard parking ratio with covered spaces, controlled access with onsite officers, an onsite delicatessen and Lunchdrop services. Additional upgrades to the asset will be announced later this year.
