JLL Negotiates 52,145-Square-Foot Industrial Lease at 620 North Houston Avenue

Transaction brings manufacturing facility to 100 percent leased

HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2016JLL today announced the firm has negotiated a new 52,145-square-foot industrial lease at 620 North Houston Avenue in the Houston suburb of Humble, Texas. Gateway Supply Inc., a supply, procurement and export company, will lease the entire manufacturing facility.

JLL's Mark Nicholas, Richard Quarles and Joe Berwick negotiated the terms on behalf of the landlord, Schroeder Partnership Ltd. Ron Roberson of Caldwell Companies represented the tenant in the transaction.

"Gateway Supply Inc. was attracted to this property because of its crane-served capabilities and ample outside storage," said Nicholas. "The property more than met the requirements of a facility that will support their manufactured cement home operation."

The fenced property encompasses approximately eight acres of land and includes three crane-served buildings. The property's buildings total 52,145 square feet, of which 7,500 square feet is office space.

The property is located in Houston's northeast industrial submarket, which encompasses approximately 30 million square feet of warehouse, distribution and manufacturing inventory. The submarket has recorded positive total net absorption of 307,091 square feet year-to-date and at just 2.2 percent, has the lowest total vacancy rate of any Houston industrial submarket.
