JLL Awarded Leasing and Management of 5300 Memorial Drive in Houston, Texas

HOUSTON, March 1, 2016 – JLL today announced that Philadelphia-based Equus Capital Partners has selected the firm to lease and manage 5300 Memorial Drive, a 150,000-square-foot office building in Houston, Texas.

JLL Senior Vice President Jessica Ochoa and Vice President Russell Hodges will oversee the building’s leasing on behalf of Equus. JLL Senior General Manager Lisa Skelton will manage the building.

“5300 Memorial’s niche location has always helped to sustain its continued success,” said Russell Hodges. “With the implementation of Equus’ capital improvement project, the building will now provide prospective tenants with an even more compelling value proposition. The capital plan will include upgrades to the building’s landscaping, entries, main lobby, multitenant corridors, elevator lobbies and restrooms.”

The 11-story office building features modern design elements throughout and is situated within walking distance of numerous amenities.

5300 Memorial is conveniently located in the Midtown submarket between Memorial Park and Buffalo Bayou Park, approximately three miles west of Houston’s Central Business District. According to JLL research, the Midtown submarket encompasses more than 4.4 million square feet of Class A and B office space and posted positive net absorption of 2.6 percent in 2015.
