HOUSTON – The Thompson & Knight law firm has leased 70,000 SF of sublease space in the BG Group Place building at 811 Main in downtown Houston.
BG Group is vacating the building, which was developed by Hines.
CBRE’s Kevin Kushner, Charles Gordon and Lucian Bukowski represented Thompson & Knight in the lease transaction.
“The opportunity to create a modern law firm space at BG Group Place (also known as 811 Main), one of the few true Class A+ buildings in downtown Houston, is a terrific result for the firm,” Kushner said.
BG Group Place is a LEED Platinum certified Class A office building clad in horizontal sunshades of glass and aluminum that wrap around the building’s curved north and south façades.
The law firm is relocating from the Three Allen Center, 333 Clay Street in downtown.
“BG Group Place is one of the premier office buildings in downtown Houston, and we believe it typifies the spirit of excellence that Thompson & Knight embraces,” said Roger Aksamit, Thompson & Knight’s Houston Office Leader.
BG Group Place, designed by the architectural firm of Pickard Chilton, opened in 2011. Hines sold the building in 2013 to Invesco.
The 46-story, 974,000-SF tower is located on the block bordered by Fannin, Rusk, Main and Walker streets.
