PRESS RELEASE: Webb Development to Break Ground on New Industrial project, Taps Transwestern to Handle Leasing

HOUSTON – Transwestern's Houston headquarters today announced it has been awarded the leasing assignment for Solon Industrial Park, a 27,000-square-foot industrial development. The development, located at Highway 249 and the Sam Houston Tollway, is being developed and designed by Webb Development.

The development will incorporate numerous sustainable features to provide an office-warehouse environment that is energy and resource efficient:

Rainwater harvesting system providing both detention capabilities and water source for site irrigation and supplement to gray water system
Gray water system to recover water from lavatories and HVAC condensation for reuse in flushing toilets and urinals
High solar reflectance metal roof panel system
One-inch insulated, medium tint, low-e coating glazing
Building wall panels to include day lighting panels
Low volatile organic compound materials and paints at interiors
Low-flow faucets and water-efficient plumbing fixtures in toilets and urinals

Recycling of construction materials

Tim Gregory, senior vice president of healthcare advisory services, and Jude Filippone, vice president of industrial services, will lease the property on behalf of Webb. Currently being pre-leased, the project is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2014.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of this tremendous development,” said Gregory.  “The project will contain a sustainable rain harvesting feature that will be utilized to irrigate the landscape. We have seen sustainable architecture in the office sector, but Webb leads the industry in developing this concept for the industrial sector.”
