PM REALTY GROUP ACQUIRES 2603 AUGUSTA, A BOUTIQUE CLASS A GALLERIA OFFICE BUILDING

HOUSTON, TX - PM Realty Group (PMRG), a nationally recognized full service commercial real estate firm, announced that it has acquired 2603 Augusta, a boutique class A office building located in Houston's upscale Galleria submarket. PMRG partnered with American National Insurance Company (ANICO) in the purchase from an affiliate of CBRE Global Investors.

Built in 1984, the 16 story 242,194 sf property recently achieved the designation of LEED EB O&M Silver by the U.S. Green Building Council. It is also a multi-time recipient of the U.S. EPA's prestigious Energy Star label. "PMRG is privileged to own such a unique and extraordinary property and we are excited about the opportunistic potential it affords us and our partner," said John Dailey, Executive Vice President and Director of Acquisitions for PMRG. CBRE Global Investors was represented by Russell Ingrum, Jared Chua and Bernard Branca, all with CBRE.

2603 Augusta recently underwent a substantial multi-million dollar renovation that resulted in numerous first class amenities including a state-of-the-art executive meeting facility and a wine locker equipped lounge for tenants' private and client events. Ongoing remodeling of the building's common areas will result in updated restrooms, floor lobbies and elevator cabs as well as new upscale finishes and décor at both building entrances. It is PMRG's plan to complete the previous owner's renovation projects as well as continue to upgrade the building's operating and mechanical systems. "Essentially, 2603 Augusta will soon be on par and comparable to any top-tier property in the Galleria area," according to Dailey.

2603 Augusta is located near the corner of Westheimer and Augusta. This strategic location allows convenient access to the Galleria submarket's abundance of retail, dining, hotel and service amenities. The building's vacant top two penthouse floors can offer a large tenant a rare block of efficient contiguous space as well as the opportunity for prestigious building identity signage. Move-in ready spec suites complete with above standard finishes are also available. Mike Martin, Vice President, and Kim Shapiro, Senior Vice President, will handle the leasing efforts on behalf of PMRG.
