Jackson Walker partner Carey L. Hain represented the East River master developer in an agreement with Port Houston to relocate their headquarters within Midway’s East River mixed-use development. The Port will construct a new 95,000 square foot office building with a dedicated parking garage.

The new office building and adjacent parking garage will be exclusively occupied by Port Houston. Midway will oversee all aspects of the project from predevelopment to construction. Groundbreaking is anticipated in the spring of 2024, with completion expected by the summer of 2025.

“Representing East River on the relocation of Port Houston’s headquarters is a testament to the power of vision and partnership of this transformative mixed-use development,” said Carey.

“Carey was critically instrumental in getting this very complicated transaction across the goal line,” notes David Hightower, Executive Vice President of Midway and Investment Manager for the seller.

The first phase of the East River Project is set to be completed this year, including office and retail spaces along with plaza green spaces as well as a 360-unit apartment community. Additionally, East River’s first phase of development encompass, a golf course with a restaurant and patio bar, and a for-sale office component consisting of three 10,000-square-foot buildings.
