HOUSTON – One Hughes Landing, the first office building in Hughes Landing, a 66-acre, mixed-use development situated on 200-acre Lake Woodlands has opened in The Woodlands, north of Houston. Hughes Landing will feature up to 11 office buildings; shopping, dining and entertainment; a specialty grocer; an upscale hotel; a fitness center and up to 800 multi-family units.
One Hughes Landing is a 197,719 sf eight-story, Class A office building designed to be LEED Silver Certified. Already 92% leased, major tenants include Strike, LLC (70,190 SF), Layne Christensen Company (51,152 SF), PetroQuest Energy, Inc.
