“JERA Americas was attracted to the benefits, energy and culture of the CBD —being connected and in the heart of Houston — as well as the amenities associated with Class A office space,” Newmark Managing Director Joshua Brown said in a release. “JERA Americas’ new space will help them be well-positioned and centrally located to tap into the talent pool in Houston and surrounding areas.”

JERA is moving its U.S. headquarters from the Galleria area to a downtown office, doubling its footprint, the company said in a release. JERA plans to double its headcount over the next several years.

The same building also holds the office of Shell, which renewed its lease last year in 2021's largest office deal.

In addition to Newmark's Brown, Newmark Associate Directors Mike Fehn and Scott Lewis represented JERA Americas, a subsidiary of the Japanese energy giant JERA. Madison Marquette's Wade Bowlin and Marti Grizzle represented the landlord, Union Investment.

JERA Americas is an energy company focused on developing zero- and lower-emission energy resources around the United States and globally.
