The two large leases include a 103,405-SF lease renewal with Chord Energy and a 55,082-SF lease renewal with Black Stone Minerals Company.

Brad Beasley and Chip Colvill of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord, JMB Realty Corp., in the lease negotiations. Chad Beck of Cushman & Wakefield represented Chord Energy and Trey Strake, David Guion and Chris Oliver of Cushman & Wakefield represented Black Stone Minerals Company.

“We are excited to have renewed the leases of these leading tenants at 1001 Fannin,” Colvill said. “Chord Energy has been a tenant at 1001 Fannin for over 16 years and Black Stone Minerals Company has been a tenant in the building for more than 30 years.”

Renovations include a revitalization of the building’s lobby and tunnel levels, a new lobby-level coffee shop, spacious tenant lounge areas with collaboration spaces, a new fully equipped fitness center, and a new exclusive outdoor tenant plaza.
