HOUSTON - Blank Rome LLP will relocate to 717 Texas in downtown after agreeing to a long-term deal with building owner Hines for 27,144 sf on the 14th floor.
Blank Rome is scheduled to vacate its current offices on the 40th and 41st floor of the 1.3 million-sf Bank of America Center and move into its new location in February 2015, a move that also denotes a 6,000-sf expansion for the law firm.
The 28-story office tower measures nearly 700,000 sf at 717 Texas Ave. Completed in 2003, the LEED Platinum high-rise incorporates a 900-car enclosed parking garage and two-story lobby with 24 floors of office space currently leased to tenants such as Calpine Corp., Rosetta Resources and Jones Day.
