Spring (Harris County) – Invited general contractors have until Friday, March 30 to submit bids to Patrinely Group to build a $20 million, five-story office/retail building with adjacent seven-level parking structure.
This is a rebid of a project that was initially planned for construction in 2015 in CityPlace, a 60-acre, master-planned commercial center that broke ground in late 2016. Upon completion, CityPlace will contain 4.4 million square feet of retail/restaurant and office space.
CityPlace in the Springwood Village master planned community will contain 4.4 million square feet of office, retail and restaurant space.
This rebid project is CityPlace 1, a 149,500-square-foot office building that will include two retail tenant spaces on the ground floor of 10,600 square feet and 8,500 square feet respectively.
It is located at the northwest corner of Lake Plaza Drive and City Plaza Drive. The CityPlace development is located to the northwest of the intersection of Interstate 45 North and Grand Parkway.
The project involves construction of a reinforced concrete Class A core and shell. Total retail space is 27,505 square feet; this includes a retail tenant space on the ground floor of the parking garage that will face Lake Plaza Drive.
The typical office floor plan for floors two to five is 29,030 square feet.

The office building facade is to consist of stone masonry, precast concrete, metal trims, a glass curtain and window wall. The ground floor retail will have integrated canopies covering the sidewalk. The office lobby will be connected to the parking garage with a protective canopy across a landscaped motor court.
CityPlace is the commercial hub of a larger master-planned residential, multifamily and commercial development known as Springwoods Village.
According to the CityPlace marketing materials, “The vision of CityPlace represents a longstanding collaboration between Patrinely Group, a national leader in commercial office buildings and build-to-suit corporate headquarters, and USAA Real Estate Company, a subsidiary of USAA, a leading financial services company.
“Together these firms join forces with CDC Houston, Inc., a subsidiary of Coventry Development Corporation, New York, an experienced land developer of mixed-use urban communities. CDC Houston has owned the property for more than 50 years waiting for the right opportunity.”
CityPlace 1 is one of at least three projects Patrinely Group is managing in CityPlace.
CityPlace 2, a sister complex, is a 10-story office/retail building with an adjacent 10-level parking garage that Patrinely Group is developing at a cost of about $40 million.
The Houston office of Gensler is the designer on both CityPlace 1 and 2. OJB is the landscape architect.
Patrinely Group has also been construction a $61 million complex at 10400 Energy Drive that includes a 239,323-square-foot, four-story office building; a 151,521-square-foot, five-story office building, and a 683,455-square-foot, six-level parking garage.
