One of Houston’s real estate titans scored a leasing deal with a law firm for a downtown office high-rise.

New York-based Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman is taking 28,000 square feet, the full 20th floor of Houston-based Hines’ 609 Main at Texas tower, the Houston Business Journal reported. 

The decision to relocate stems from Pillsbury’s desire for a more modern and energized office environment that aligns with its emphasis on innovation and diversity. Furthermore, it sought “an updated setting that provides convenient, first-class amenities for its workforce and clients,” Savills’ Lesa Nickelson French told the outlet.

The 48-story, 1.1 million-square-foot building opened in 2017. It offers a range of amenities, such as a hotel-style lobby, fitness center, conference center and private roof gardens. The property also has a 13-story parking garage with 1,700 spaces.
