Houston-based Midway, a privately owned, fully integrated real estate investment and development firm, is pleased to announce that Amazon Web Services, Infosys, Jacobs, and Pin Oak Group are making their way to CITYCENTRE, Houston’s premier mixed-use destination for Class A office space, upscale shopping, dining and entertainment. As a result of these additions, CITYCENTRE is 96%leased.
To accommodate its growth in Houston, Amazon Web Services has signed a new full-floor lease at 818 Town and Country Boulevard in CITYCENTRE Two. This expansion, adjacent to AWS’s current offices in CITYCENTRE Five, will provide a host of amenities for employees to enjoy, including access to restaurants, gyms, entertainment, shopping, and more. The new office space is expected to open for employees in early 2022.
“Thanks to Houston’s incredible talent pipeline, we are able to bring 150 new jobs to the city, on top of the more than 300 technology and corporate roles we have already created,” said Scott Bends, site lead for Amazon’s Houston Tech Hub. “We are excited to continue working with the community and local leaders as we invest in Houston, bringing new economic opportunity to the area.”
Another addition to CITYCENTRE Two is Jacobs, a Dallas-headquartered global professional services firm providing solutions to create a more connected, sustainable world — from intelligence to infrastructure, cybersecurity to space exploration. Jacobs has also signed a full-floor lease in CITYCENTRE Two to consolidate several smaller Houston area locations and is expected to take occupancy in early 2022.
AWS and Jacobs join Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, who relocated from Westchase to the top floor of CITYCENTRE Two earlier this year. With over four decades of experience in managing the systems and workings of global enterprises, Infosys expertly steers clients, including Houston businesses, through their digital journey.
“We are thrilled that CITYCENTRE is emerging as an innovation hub for new office tenants,” said Robert Williamson, Senior Vice President of Investment Management for Midway. “These companies are pioneers of technology and energy, and it is humbling to be able to offer these top-of-the-line office spaces for Houstonians in the process. Also joining CITYCENTRE is Pin Oak Group, which blends traditional energy storage with cutting-edge new technology.”
Pin Oak owns and operates a network of integrated midstream assets for the transportation, storage, and distribution of energy products. While Pin Oak has facilities throughout Texas, its headquarters will be relocating from the Houston CBD to CITYCENTRE Two later this year.
