Houston-based Diamond Offshore Drilling moved from its longtime headquarters at 15415 Katy Freeway, and has signed a noteworthy lease at One Eldridge in the Energy Corridor. Diamond Offshore spent 33 years at its former location at 15415 Katy Freeway before moving into 62,000 square feet at its new office at 777 N. Eldridge Parkway. The company will occupy the ninth, 11th and top floor of the 12-story, 245,315-square-foot office building, which is part of a three-building office campus that once housed BP. It is owned by Plano-based real estate company Granite Properties. (Photo courtesy of Houston Chronicle)
Diamond Offshore is downsizing from its current 98,000 square foot lease.
The Eldridge has updated lobbies and a new outdoor lounge called The Yard. An area at the center of the complex includes a coffee bar, a fitness center with virtual classes, lockers and showers, and three conference rooms, including a training facility and phone room. A restaurant is in the works.
