HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – The WellMed health care firm has been signed as an anchor tenant for a new mixed-use project opening on the Gulf Freeway in the Inner Loop.
Developed by Hass Holdings, the 56,000-SF South Gulf Plaza is a Class A mixed-use development comprised of two buildings located inside the 610 Loop on I-45 just North of Wayside Drive.
The new tenant, WellMed Medical Management, a health care company serving patients with primary care and multi-specialty care clinics in Texas, Florida and New Mexico, leased 12,401 SF in the project, Colliers reports.
“The developers recognized the unique opportunity to offer a mixed-use Class A asset to an underserved area. WellMed is the perfect anchor tenant for this particular project,” said Jenny Seckinger, Vice President of Colliers.
Seckinger and Ace Schlameus of Colliers represented the landlord in the transaction. WellMed Medical was represented by Luke Campbell and Nick Campbell of Perron & Campbell.
