HOUSTON-Houston’s northwest submarket stays the course on the industrial side, with Denver-based ProLogis signing three tenants to 41,494 sf at a trio of parks.

At Pine Forest Business Center, Gulfstream Graphics Inc. has leased 16,602 sf. Pine Timbers Distribution Center gets Premier Products in a 13,172-sf deal. And, Post Oak Business Center lands Koike Aronson Inc. with an 11,720-sf lease. Caleb Lawson of Caldwell Watson Real Estate Group in Houston represented all of the tenants.

Gulfstream Graphics is a Houston-based printing company that will settle into a spot at 331 Garden Oaks. Daryl Mechem was ProLogis’ in-house representative for the negotiations.

Lawson tells GlobeSt.com that Gulfstream’s space is 100% air-conditioned, a rare amenity in distribution space and a significant driver in the deal. The 53,795-sf, multi-tenant building is traditional tilt-wall industrial distribution space. Built in 1973, it has 22-foot clear heights. Lawson’s mum about the lease terms, but did say buildings in the area carry lease ranges of 38 cents per sf to 65 cents per sf. The wide range results from the variety of product that’s available in the park, says Lawson.

Louisiana-based Premier Products’ new address will be 4660 Pine Timbers. ProLogis’ Art Barkley handled the talks with the manufacturer of commercial steel doors.

Premier will be relocating from nearby Tanner Road plus grabbing extra space for an expansion. Lawson says the 21-year-old, multi-tenant industrial building is more in keeping with Premier’s needs for distribution space instead of manufacturing space. The 306,785-sf structure is designed with 22-foot clear height and tilt wall construction. The Pine Timbers area is fetching between 33 cents per sf and 50 cents per sf gross.

Koike Aronson, an Arcadia, NY-based welding supply company, is moving into an area of town where industrial space brings 35 cents per sf to 65 cents per sf. Barkley also handled the Pine Timbers deal on ProLogis’ behalf for the multi-tenant building at 1285 N. Post Oak.

According to Lawson, Koike Aronson’s acquisition of a Houston company sparked the decision to set up a distribution presence in Houston. He says the tenant was particularly taken with the location of the 23-year-old, 26,805-sf structure.
