Blank Rome, LLP Relocating to 717 Texas

AmLaw 100 Law Firm Inks Long-Term Deal at CBD Office Tower
November 10, 2014
Blank Rome, LLP will relocate to 717 Texas after agreeing to a long-term deal with building owner Hines for 27,144 square feet on the 14th floor.

The 28-story office tower measures nearly 700,000 square feet at 717 Texas Ave. in downtown Houston. 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, according to CoStar information.

Blank Rome is scheduled to vacate its current offices on the 40th and 41st floor of the 1.3 million-square-foot Bank of America Center and move into its new location in February 2015, a move that also denotes a 6,000-square-foot expansion for the AmLaw 100 law firm.

Kevin Hodges of Savills Studley negotiated the lease on behalf of Blank Rome. Ed Bowerman, also of Savills Studley, served as project management consultant on the office build-out. Michael Anderson of Colvill Office Properties represented Hines.
