Hines Global Income Trust Acquires New Boutique Office Building in Prime Houston Mixed-Use Community

July 27, 2022

(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.
