JLL was selected by Medistar Corporation and Texas A&M University to lease the Horizon Tower in Houston. The life sciences and medical office tower is scheduled to begin construction later this year.
Located near the corner of Main Street and Holcombe Boulevard in the Texas Medical Center, Horizon Tower is part of the $550-million Texas A&M Innovation Plaza mixed-use development announced by Texas A&M in February. It will be a 17-story development on top of the existing 13-story parking structure, with a 2024 completion planned.
“Horizon Tower is well-positioned to thrive as one of the state’s premier life sciences facilities located within Texas A&M’s Innovation Plaza campus in the largest medical center in the world,” said JLL SVP Tim Gregory.
The leasing assignment will be spearheaded by Gregory along with Angela Barber, both leasing agents in JLL’s healthcare and life sciences group.
