(HOUSTON, TEXAS) – Hines, the global real estate firm, today announced that Hines Global Income Trust (“HGIT”) has acquired 200 Park Place for $145 million. As one of the most highly sought-after office buildings in Houston, the state-of-the-art project, which boasts over 206,000 square feet, is part of an upscale mixed-use community within Houston’s Inner Loop, making it a premium location for current and future tenants.
Located at 400 Westheimer Road, the asset is 100% leased to a diverse roster, with JLL and Buckeye Partners serving as the anchor tenants. Surrounded by walkable high-end shops, restaurants and green space, 200 Park Place offers tenants a unique live-work-play experience. Completed in April 2020, the building is WELL and LEED certified and is fully electric, exceeding current local codes relative to sustainability and performance requirements.
“As high-profile companies continue to look to Houston for best-in-class, well-amenitized buildings, and Houston continues to lead the U.S. on return-to-office rates, our acquisition of 200 Park Place allows us to strategically capitalize on these trends and the ongoing evolution of commercial real estate,” said Janice Walker, chief operating officer of Hines Global Income Trust. “200 Park Place is a high-quality asset with an environmentally sustainable approach making it an attractive addition to the portfolio especially when factoring in its basis which is below current replacement cost. We are focused on continued diversification of the portfolio with institutional-quality, next-generation assets in dynamic locations, because tenants are eager for this kind of product.”
“Houston’s River Oaks District is a centrally located submarket that is continuing to see interest from those looking to work and play in an engaging, upscale neighborhood,” said John Mooz, senior managing director at Hines. “200 Park Place’s modern design and walkable amenities differentiate it from other office and retail opportunities along Westheimer Road, making it a strategic location for investment in this key submarket.”
The acquisition joins a $3.4 billion portfolio that is roughly two-thirds weighted toward the industrial and living sectors. HGIT is diversified by geography and real estate asset class with a focus on dynamic sectors and markets.
