PM REALTY GROUP ACQUIRES SUGAR CREEK ON THE LAKE IN SUGAR LAND, TX


HOUSTON, TX - PM Realty Group, L.P. ("PMRG"), a nationally recognized and full service commercial real estate firm, announces the acquisition of Sugar Creek on the Lake, a 515,000-square-foot Class A office building located at 14141 Southwest Freeway in Sugar Land, Texas. Accompanying the 8.98 acre office building and garage, PMRG acquired the adjoining 14.72 acre surface parking lot in order to accommodate the parking requirements of prospective tenants and growth plans.   

Along with its equity partners, PCCP, LLC ("PCCP") and Fuller Realty Partners ("Fuller"), PMRG plans to invest $13M in capital improvements including creating up to an additional 650 parking spaces to increase the parking ratio, HVAC replacement and elevator and emergency management system enhancements and modernizations. Future capital improvements will complement the recent lobby and workout facility renovations.  

The building was 100% leased by Chevron until their lease expired in March 2010. The building is currently 20% occupied by two tenants, Money Management International, Inc. (MMI) and Hightower Deli.  

PMRG's EVP/Managing Director of Acquisitions John Dailey, who spearheaded the acquisition in tandem with Roger Gregory, Chief Financial Officer, said, "The opportunity to acquire a best-in-class asset such as Sugar Creek on the Lake in a thriving market like Sugar Land was extremely appealing to PMRG, PCCP and Fuller." Roger Gregory added, "We are excited to partner with PCCP and Fuller on this acquisition and to own the largest block, 400,000 sq. ft., of immediately available space in west Houston."

Located in Sugar Land on US Highway 59, Sugar Creek on the Lake sits less than five minutes from State Highway 6 and Beltway 8 and ten minutes from the West Park Tollway, offering convenient access to the Houston metropolitan area and unrivaled amenities. Industries calling Sugar Land home are as diverse as its resident population. Ranging from semiconductors to seismic-data equipment, Sugar Land industry has grown exponentially over the past 10 years as a result of the city's many strengths. Sugar Land hosts its strong economy through diversification, corporate vitality and quality of life and was ranked as one of the "Top Cities in Texas" for business relocation and expansion by both Outlook Magazine and Texas Business. The City is home to numerous high-profile regional and international corporations housed in over 22 million square feet of commercial space, including Minute Maid, Schlumberger, Fluor Corporation, Bechtel EO and Aetna.
