DALLAS - Cassidy Turley, a leading commercial real estate services provider in the U.S., was selected by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, acting on behalf of institutional investors it advises, to lease and manage two premier properties in Texas: Fountain Place in Dallas and Post Oak Central in Houston. Fountain Place is a 1.2 million square foot, iconic 60-story, trophy office tower prominently located in Dallas’s Central Business District, intersecting with the West End, Uptown and Arts Districts. Post Oak Central—three, 24-story office buildings totaling 1.3 million square feet (SF)—is located in the heart of Houston’s Galleria submarket and is one of Houston’s most successful class A office developments. Cassidy Turley will take over responsibilities for both properties in February 2012.
“Cassidy Turley is expanding its relationship with J.P. Morgan in a significant way with these two assignments,” said Bret Bunnett, Regional Managing Principal, Cassidy Turley. “Fountain Place and Post Oak Central are two of the most recognizable assets on the Dallas and Houston skylines.”
Fountain Place’s ideal location, onsite and area amenities, including the award-winning Fountain Plaza, nearby restaurants, entertainment, the new Woodall Rodgers Park and public transportation, creates a strong sense of community in the area. Current tenants include many of Dallas’ most reputable law, financial and services/consulting firms, including: Hunton & Williams, L.L.P., Wells Fargo Bank, and Tenet Healthcare Corporation.
Post Oak Central boasts panoramic views of the Galleria market and the Memorial and Tanglewood residential areas. The property’s onsite amenities include a fitness center, daycare, restaurants, banking and is an easy walk to numerous other restaurants and hotels. Further, Post Oak Central houses impressive tenants such as Apache Corporation, Suez Energy North America, Inc., Stewart Title, and Cox Radio.
“Fountain Place and Post Oak Central are both architecturally stunning – designed by renowned architects I.M. Pei and Philip Johnson, respectively,” added Mr. Bunnett. “These trophy properties are sought-after business locations in their respective markets and we look forward to upholding their reputations and extending their legacy of success.”
The addition of these two flagship assignments brings Cassidy Turley’s Texas office portfolio to approximately 22 million SF in Dallas and Houston.
