HOUSTON-A fixture in the CBD’s legal scene, Andrews Kurth LLP has added 23,000 sf to a 200,000-sf lease at JPMorgan Chase Tower, working out a co-terminus run with a long-term pact inked three years ago.

Charles Gordon, executive vice president with Houston’s CBRE/Trione & Gordon tells GlobeSt.com that the expansion takes up an additional floor in the 75-story, 1.7-million-sf tower at 600 Travis St. He says Andrews Kurth discussed moving its information technology and human resources departments to another building to gain needed space, but the tower’s building owner, Prime Asset Management of Houston, came up with the right incentives to stay. The law firm’s lease spans 10 floors.

The office build-out is underway, with move-in anticipated soon. The class A space, leased and managed by locally based Hines Interests, is fetching in the neighborhood of $25 per sf.

Gordon says Andrews Kurth moved into the building in 1981, originally occupying 100,000 sf. The 250-attorney firm, the fourth largest in the city, also leases 20,000 sf at 801 Travis St. for back-office functions.
