(HOUSTON) – The Houston office of Hines, the property manager of the 1.7 million-square-foot JPMorgan Chase Tower located at 600 Travis in downtown Houston, today announced that it has recently signed 149,494 square feet of new and renewal office leases on behalf of the owner, Texas Tower Limited. The 75-story tower, Houston’s tallest office building, is now more than 96 percent leased. The increase in occupancy is in large part due to the tower’s most rapidly growing tenant, Linn Energy, which recently signed a lease expansion for 58,944 square feet, bringing their total leased space in the tower to approximately 175,000 square feet. Their initial lease seven years ago was for 3,044 square feet. Trey Strake and Chris Oliver with Cushman & Wakefield represented Linn in lease negotiations.
