Howard Hughes Holdings announced the acquisition of Waterway Plaza II, a Class A office building that offers 142,448 rentable square feet in The Woodlands Town Center—the downtown core of the company’s acclaimed community of The Woodlands in the Greater Houston region. Purchased for $19.2 million, the six-story building sits on a 3.23-acre site and includes a 1,316-space parking garage. With current occupancy of 55%, Waterway Plaza II provides much needed inventory to Howard Hughes’ office portfolio in The Woodlands Town Center, which is currently 96% leased.

“With this acquisition of over three prime acres and a parking garage, we have an unparalleled long-term covered land play with an attractive, low-cost basis as our downtown continues to attract companies and employees seeking a business-friendly location and high-quality lifestyle,” said David O’Reilly, Chief Executive Officer of Howard Hughes. “Waterway Plaza II gives Howard Hughes ownership of a Class A office building on a premium site in the heart of The Woodlands with exceptional near-term value through the lease-up of the existing vacancy, as well as the opportunity for long-term value creation through the site’s potential redevelopment. Our Woodlands Town Center office portfolio is essentially fully leased, and with the execution of our strategic plan to meet the ongoing demand, we expect Waterway Plaza II will achieve stabilized NOI of $3 million in the coming years.”

Waterway Plaza II is a LEED Silver and ENERGY STAR certified building that offers high visibility and accessibility, providing walkable access to The Woodlands Waterway and its extensive retail, dining, and entertainment, as well as convenient access to I-45. It is located next door to 10 Waterway, The Woodlands’ next Class A office development opportunity directly adjacent to Waterway Square and its destination retail.
