HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – The Avera Companies, a Houston-based commercial real estate development, construction, and investment firm, has announced the execution of a significant lease by Hercules Inc. at its Park 8 distribution center in northwest Houston.
Hercules, which manufactures and supplies poly products to retailers, distributors, and health service providers leased 111,062 SF in Park 8. The remaining 131,698 SF of the building is currently leased to Hellman Worldwide Logistics.

Avera partnered with AEW Capital Management on the development and construction of Park 8, a 242,760 SF distribution center in northwest Houston.
“We are thrilled to have Hercules at Park 8. Our location at the southwest corner of Beltway 8 and I-45 North is incredibly strategic – it provides Hercules with access to both highways, as well as close proximity to the Northwest submarket and Bush Intercontinental Airport,” said Trey Odom, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Avera Companies.
Hercules Inc. was represented by Jim Autenreith and J. W. “Jay” Wall III of Moody Rambin, while Jason Dillee and Nathan Wynne of CBRE represented Park 8.
