April 16, 2021

Houston – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces it has been engaged by Cousins Properties to provide office leasing services for BriarLake Plaza in Houston’s Westchase submarket. The assignment encompasses two Class A assets: the 502,410-square-foot One BriarLake Plaza at 2000 W. Sam Houston Parkway South, and the 333,100-square-foot Two BriarLake Plaza at 2050 W. Sam Houston Parkway South. The office leasing team of David Baker, Tyler Garrett and Katy Gragg will represent ownership.

“We are excited to take the premier project in West Houston to the next level by reenergizing the amenities and enhancing the experience for tenants in search of both move-in ready options and long-term headquarters locations,” said Baker. “It is an honor to be selected by Cousins as a partner in executing this vision and continuing its success as a premier owner in the Sunbelt.”

Currently 84.9% leased, BriarLake Plaza offers a state-of-the-art fitness center with locker rooms, two on-site food service options, a conference center for large and small meeting requirements, abundant greenspace and an outdoor fountain-filled lake. Ownership plans to add more amenities, further enhancing the campus and creating an energetic experience for work teams returning to the office.

BriarLake Plaza is located at a prime ingress and egress one exit south of Interstate 10 at the Briar Forest exit. The east-west access on Briar Forest Drive is convenient to key neighborhoods populated by decision makers as well as a highly skilled workforce. The project is directly connected via walkway to Briar Lake Village, which features Palazzo’s, Moderna Tacos + Tex Mex, Kolache Factory, Subway, Tiff’s Treats and Green Lane Co., as well as a fitness studio, nail salon and bank.
