Tenant named for CityPlace in Springwoods Village

The American Bureau of Shipping will move its Houston global headquarters to the 10-story CityPlace 2 building—one of two CityPlace office space buildings—planned in Springwoods Village, developers announced May 24.

ABS, which provides classification services to the marine and offshore industries, and ABS Group, the technical services subsidiary of ABS, will occupy the entire office component of the 10-story, 326,800-square-foot CityPlace 2 building slated to begin construction in early 2017, according to a press release prepared by CityPlace developers Patrinely Group, USAA Real Estate Company and CDC Houston.

CityPlace is a 60-acre mixed-use development that will include 4 million square feet of office space, 400,000 square feet of retail space and a full-service hotel.

“I’m incredibly proud by what we’ve accomplished,” Patrinely Group President and CEO Robert Fields said. “The deal with ABS underscores everything CityPlace is about—unparalleled location, ease of accessibility, first class amenities, and world class sponsorship.”

CityPlace 2 is expected to be completed in 2018. In addition to the office space, it will include 23,700 square feet of ground floor retail space.

CityPlace 1, a 149,600-square-foot office building, is also planned for the site. It will include 122,700 square feet of office space and 26,900 square feet of ground flood retail space. Developers have not announced tenants for CityPlace 1.

A lakefront public plaza with an amphitheater is also planned for the CityPlace site and a 268-unit apartment building, The Mark at CityPlace, is under construction on Springwoods Plaza Drive.
