(HOUSTON, TX) – Houston-based Midway, the privately owned, fully integrated real estate investment and development firm, today announced plans for CITYCENTRE Six, a 19-story, 320,000 square-foot Class A office tower. Situated at the southern end of the CITYCENTRE north site, adjacent to Marathon Oil’s headquarters, the building is poised to be a landmark addition to Houston's premier mixed-use district and will include a new half-acre urban plaza. Midway has secured a confidential tenant for 65 percent of the building's office space, underscoring the strong leasing demand at CITYCENTRE, which is currently 100 percent leased.
"Our plans for CITYCENTRE's north site have been in the works for almost a decade, and CITYCENTRE Six is a significant step towards realizing our long-term vision for the development," said Chris Seckinger, Vice President of Investment and Development at Midway. “CITYCENTRE’s thriving blend of office, retail, hotel, and residential offerings is a testament to the growing appeal of this area, and we look forward to introducing a new standard for Class A office space while also growing the pedestrian-focused master plan of the district.”
CITYCENTRE Six will include 308,000 square feet of office space, with a large portion dedicated to the anchor tenant and up to 100,000 square feet available for lease. The tower will sit on a nine-level podium parking structure, providing ample and convenient parking for office workers. Approximately 12,000 square feet of retail and dining concepts on the building’s ground floor will support the surrounding office tenants, complementing CITYCENTRE’s existing mix of shopping, dining, and entertainment offerings.
CITYCENTRE Six and the adjacent Marathon Oil building have been master-planned around a new half-acre urban plaza that will serve as a sophisticated new entrance to the original CITYCENTRE development. Designed by OJB Landscape Architecture and curated by Midway's Urban Park brand, the space will be hardscaped with materiality, with natural elements incorporated throughout and built-in assembly seating overlooking the area. CITYCENTRE Six’s retail fronts and patios will spill out onto the landscaped plaza, maintaining the view corridor and providing a natural pedestrian-focused connection back to CITYCENTRE.
“As we continue to shape the modern workplace, we recognize the importance of creating an environment that transcends functionality and sparks inspiration,” said Brad Freels, Chairman and CEO, Midway. “This new urban plaza, in line with Midway's urban park brand, will offer a unique setting for professionals to connect, collaborate, and find moments of respite within the bustling CITYCENTRE environment. It's about creating a place where people want to be, and we believe this new addition will further enhance the appeal of CITYCENTRE Six as a premier destination for businesses and their employees.”
Additional members of the project team for CITYCENTRE Six include Kirksey, Architect of Record; Munoz+ Albin Architecture and Planning, Design Architect; and OJB Landscape Architecture, Landscape Design. Construction is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2024, with delivery expected in 2026.
