Ensco Offshore Company Signs 20,000-SF Houston Office Lease
Firm to Expand by 74 percent within KBS Portfolio
Houston, TX (June 8, 2010)  
Ensco Offshore Company, a subsidiary of Ensco plc (NYSE: ESV), has signed a 20,717-square-foot lease occupying the entire third floor at Two Park Ten Place, located at 16300 Katy Freeway.

The company is moving this summer from The Atrium at Park 10, located at 16340 Park 10 Place, a KBS Realty Advisors Portfolio building, to another KBS building, and expanding by 74 percent.

“Without enough space for Ensco to expand in its current building, the landlord worked with us to find a solution that enabled it to keep a tenant, as well as satisfy Ensco’s growing deepwater business requirements for immediate and future space needs,” explained Lance McCarthy of Studley, the firm that represented Ensco in the transaction. 

The lease includes a tenant-improvement allowance and options to expand.

In addition to Mr. McCarthy, Kyle Kelley and Damon Thames of Studley represented Ensco in the transaction.  Doug Little of PM Realty Group represented the landlord, KBS Realty Advisors Houston Portfolio.
