United Airlines Signs Lease For Hines' 609 Main
609 Main at Texas has brought another major lease on board. United Airlines inked 225k SF in Hines to-be-iconic building under construction Downtown.
With 1,600 employees, United Airlines is the 11th-largest employer in Downtown Houston, according to the Houston Business Journal. Its current offices are at 1600 Smith, which it acquired when it merged with Continental Airlines in 2010.
The new 48-story spec office at 609 Main is already home to law firm Kirkland & Ellis, which signed a lease for 62k SF at the top two floors.
Hines’ new building is expected to be completed in 2017. [HBJ]
