The Deal Sheet
Energy XXI Services expanded by 25% in One City Centre, bringing it to 171k SF in the building. That’s just the latest in an impressive history of growth in the facility. (It's impossible to buy clothes for the facility because it grows so much... and they're buildings so they don't wear clothes.)
Transwestern EVP David Baker, who reps One City Centre, tells us Energy XXI occupied 35k SF when he took on the assignment in 2006. The latest leap in SF is due to its acquisition of EPL Oil & Gas in March. David says One City Centre is 90% leased, largely dominated by two companies who can’t seem to stop expanding (The Universe is always expanding, companies are just trying to keep up)—Energy XXI and Waste Management (which now has 260k SF there). Transwestern has been getting lots of prospects on the remaining space, but David tells us his priority is making sure those dynamic existing clients have room to keep growing.
One City Centre is owned by Beacon Investments (one of 14 office buildings it owns in Houston). Energy XXI was repped by Wilson Wasaff Group’s Jason Wasaff. David’s landlord rep team includes SVP Monte Calvert and VP Kelli Crutchfield.
