Client Objectives

  • Baytex Energy acquired another energy firm and needed to dispose of that company’s downtown space.
  • The client decided to market the full floor as multi-tenant space to help unload it as the Houston office market had stalled thanks to falling oil prices.
  • To make things more difficult, the market was already over saturated with more than 11 MSF of available sublease space.


  • Cresa began a rigorous marketing campaign highlighting the space’s finishes to help differentiate it from the already overcrowded sublease market.
  • After compiling a list of potential full floor prospects, Cresa identified and secured a tenant to take down the entire floor in just 5 months.
  • Baytex Energy was able to lock ina sublease recovery rate well above the client’s expectations due to Cresa’s expediency in locating a credible subtenant.
