HOUSTON - Skanska secured the first lease for its new Galleria area skyscraper, a 302,000-sf office development at 3009 Post Oak Blvd.
Datacert Inc. signed a long-term lease in the building which is one of two skyscrapers under construction in the submarket. Previous to the two new buildings, the submarket had not had any new construction since 1983.
Datacert will relocate its corporate headquarters from 3040 Post Oak Blvd. in the Lakes on Post Oak complex to the new building. The company will occupy more than 49,000 sf on the 10th and 11th floors of the 20-story building.
The project is on track to deliver summer 2013 and is precertified LEED Platinum.
Datacert had 140 employees as of year-end 2011, according to the HBJ's 2013 Book of Lists, and expects a 25 percent increase in employees in 2013.
