MetroNational to Develop 240,000 SF Office Building in Houston

July 8, 2015

HOUSTON — Houston-based MetroNational plans to begin developing a 240,000-square-foot office building located in Houston’s Memorial City district. The development will be situated on MetroNational’s 18-acre tract located at the northwest corner of Gessner Road and the Katy Freeway, directly across from the Memorial Hermann Tower. CEMEX’s U.S. headquarters will anchor the six-floor, LEED-certified building at 10100 Katy Freeway. MetroNational, a privately held real estate investment, development and management company, began assembling the tract in 1961. CEMEX has had offices in Memorial City since 2005 and will now occupy approximately 80,000 square feet on the new building’s second and third levels. Each level features 40,000-square-foot floor plates. The building’s first floor will include approximately 15,000 square feet dedicated to retail, and the top three floors are available for pre-leasing. Building amenities will include 24-hour security, card key access and connectivity to Memorial City conveniences via a shuttle service. Powers Brown Architecture is the architect of record, and Anslow Bryant Construction is the general contractor for the project. Sue Rogers and Steven Heal of Cresa represented CEMEX, and MetroNational represented itself in the transaction. The project is due to break ground this fall, and completion is projected for fall 2016.
