Jones Lang LaSalle Secures 52,000-Square-Foot Lease for Hilton Worldwide

ADDISON, February 5, 2010 – Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it has secured a 52,000-square-foot lease for Hilton Worldwide at Colonnade III, located at 15303 Dallas Parkway in Addison, Texas. The building will serve as Hilton Worldwide’s commercial services center. Additionally, Jones Lang LaSalle helped Hilton Worldwide obtain incentives from the Town of Addison.

Paul Whitman and Chelby Sanders with Jones Lang LaSalle represented Hilton Worldwide. J.J. Leonard, Jay Bailey and Susannah Wallace with CBRE represented the landlord, CB Richard Ellis Investors.  Jones Lang LaSalle also handled the relocation of Hilton’s world headquarters from California to Virginia in 2009.

“Hilton Worldwide seized this opportunity to relocate to The Colonnade, which is a three-building complex with outstanding amenities,” said Whitman, President-DFW, Jones Lang LaSalle. “Despite a short timeline, we were very impressed with the support and helpfulness of the Town of Addison and their efforts to expedite the permit process and plan approval in addition to providing incentives to help cover relocation expenses.”

Hilton Worldwide will take two floors at The Colonnade, a one million-square-foot Class AA multi-tenant office complex that offers ample meeting space with free WiFi, a fitness center, café, convenience store, medical and dental offices, dry cleaners, and an attached multi-level structured parking garage. With the addition of Hilton Worldwide, the CBRE leasing team has added more than 100,000 square feet of new tenants in the past six months.

“We knew that building amenities and customer service were of the utmost importance to Hilton Worldwide, which is why The Colonnade is a perfect fit,” said Leonard, senior vice president of CB Richard Ellis. “While other properties may have one or two of the services we provide, few can match the comprehensive 5-Star Service package that CBRE Investors has the financial strength to offer not only at the Colonnade, but across the country as well.”
Hilton Worldwide has also hired Jones Lang LaSalle’s Project Development Services (PDS) team, led by Byron Edgmon and Tim Mahar, to head up the project management. Hilton Worldwide will be using this opportunity to upgrade the workplace to meet its corporate standards, including new finishes and furniture.
