Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of Landmark Office Property in Houston

Acquisition of the 195,525 total square feet of office space at 12301 Kurland in the Gulf Freeway submarket


HOUSTON, Dec. 13, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL) today announced the firm’s Capital Markets experts have closed the sale of 12301 Kurland, a four-story 195,525-square-foot office building in Houston’s Gulf Freeway submarket. Managing Director Rudy Hubbard and Vice President Kevin McConn led the Jones Lang LaSalle team representing the seller, Capital Commercial Investments, Inc. 

On behalf of the buyer, Mission Companies, the firm also secured a senior mortgage loan through Deutsche Bank, which provided a 10-year CMBS loan to facilitate the acquisition of the property. Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Director Paul House and Vice President John Ream led the team on this transaction.

“This property, which is 92 percent leased to five tenants and designed to withstand hurricane-force conditions, offers many upsides that were recognized by the buyer,” said Hubbard. “One major factor in this sale was the superior location, three blocks from the I-45 thoroughfare that connects the submarket with the Central Business District; and one-half mile north of the Sam Houston Tollway, which encircles the city and provides direct access to all major Houston submarkets. 12301 Kurland is also located in close proximity to the Port of Houston, home of the Houston Ship Channel and a $15 billion petrochemical complex, the largest in the nation and second largest in the world.”

Situated on 12 acres of additional land, the building was renovated in 2006 with more than $7 million in upgrades, including new lobby and ADA restrooms, a Johnson Controls Metasys energy management system, a monument sign and HVAC upgrades. The office building includes a basement and lower level with a three-bay loading dock.
