HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – JAMS, a global arbitration, mediation and ADR provider, leased 10,055 SF at 609 Main at Texas, a 48-story office tower in downtown Houston, according to Hines.
JAMS will occupy the 39th floor of the 1,073,075-SF office tower in downtown Houston.
With this lease, 609 Main at Texas stands at 95 percent leased. Completed by Hines in 2017, tower has been a beneficiary of the so-called “flight to quality” trend which has prompted companies to upgrade to prime office space.
Other notable tenants in the 609 Main at Texas building include United Airlines, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, White & Case, Orrick, EnVen Energy, Royal Bank of Canada, Hogan Lovells, McKinsey & Company, and Russell Reynolds Associates.
Hines Senior Managing Director John Mooz said, “We are very proud that JAMS has chosen to establish their new space at 609 Main, and we look forward to having their panel of respected mediators and arbitrators in our world-class building.” Founded in 1979, JAMS is the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution services worldwide.
Designed by the architectural firm of Pickard Chilton, 609 Main at Texas’ north and south façade extend skyward, culminating in a dramatic diagonal crown, creating a new, highly visible downtown landmark.
Amenities include a “hotel-style” lobby with a café and spaces for networking; a 7,000-SF fitness center and 8,000-SF conference center; a sophisticated underfloor HVAC system; and private roof gardens in select tenant spaces.
The building has a signature 6-story arched window overlooking Main Street where the METRO rail line runs.
