Upper Kirby mixed-use project inks first office leases
Thor Equities has inked its first office leases within Kirby Collection, a large mixed-use project under construction in Upper Kirby. The New York developer signed long-term leases with Hancock Whitney Bank, Novum Energy Trading and Regency Centers totalling 36,775 square feet. The deals are indicative of companies’ growing appetite for office space within larger mixed-use projects where workers can not only work, but live, eat and play. Move-ins are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018. “All three tenants were attracted to the project’s highly desirable location, attractive amenities and modern design,” Melissa Gliatta, COO of Thor Equities, said in a statement.
