HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Empyrean Benefit Solutions renewed a 108,000 SF lease for its headquarters in the nine-story Pinnacle Westchase building at 3010 Briarpark Drive near Beltway 8 in Houston.
Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) Director David Husid represented the tenant in the lease transaction, one of the largest deals in the Westchase submarket this year.
In 2017, NKF represented Empyrean in leasing space in the building with a sublease and the Pinnacle Westchase building was identified as a long-term solution for the tenant, said NKF Texas President Neal Golden.
“The NKF team worked quickly and efficiently,” Golden said. “From the initial move, Empyrean’s relocation was seamless; the company encountered no operational downtime and clients experienced no service disruption throughout the office transition.”
“Empyrean is working with designers and architects to create a modern and collaborative environment that reflects our company’s culture and enables our teams to deliver the market-leading products and award-winning service that has led to Empyrean’s 97% client retention,” said Richard Wolfe, Empyrean’s co-founder and CEO.
NKF said the Westchase submarket remains a prime choice for companies in the Houston market due to its proximity to the area’s major tenants as well as numerous subdivisions and schools and allows a firm to give its’ employees a strong work/life balance. As a result, the submarket’s office demand remains steady, and as such firms as Honeywell, Bill.com and others have recently made long term commitments to the area.
