Houston, Texas - July 7, 2015
MetroNational announced plans Tuesday to build a 240,000-square-foot office building in Memorial City on an 18-acre tract, as part of the company’s long-term vision to redevelop the area.
Mexico-based Cemex, which has had an office in Memorial City since 2005, will anchor the development as the building’s first tenant with 80,000 square feet on the building’s second and third levels. The Houston location will be the cement and building materials company’s U.S. headquarters. The six-floor building will be located at the northwest corner of Gessner Road and the Katy Freeway at 10100 Katy Freeway, directly across from Memorial Hermann Tower.
“The northwest corner is MetroNational’s newest commercial development and the first step in expanding Memorial City north of I-10,” said Jason Johnson, president of MetroNational, in a statement. “Similar to other Memorial City office developments, this building’s proximity to Memorial Hermann, Memorial City Mall, the Westin, and many restaurants will attract employees looking for great amenities.”
The building will feature 40,000-square-foot floor plates. The first floor will include 15,000 square feet of retail. Amenities will include 24-hour security, card key access and connections to other Memorial City locations via shuttle service.
“Cemex is excited to continue our relationship with MetroNational as construction begins on our new U.S. headquarters. We look forward to creating an inspiring, state-of-the art space to better serve our customers and our employees,” Cemex USA president Karl Watson, Jr. said in a statement.
The project is slated to break ground in fall 2015 and open in fall 2016.
