After considering a move, Purvin & Gertz, Inc. has renewed its lease for 19,412 square feet in JPMorgan Chase Tower at 600 Travis Street. The independent energy industry consultancy signed a long-term lease in the 75-story, Class A office building, which was developed by Gerald Hines in 1982 as Texas Commerce Tower.

Purvin & Gertz has been a tenant in the downtown high-rise since the building opened. The firm evaluated three other buildings in its search, according to Kevin Hodges, a senior managing director with Studley who represented the consulting firm. He has represented the firm in Houston for more than 15 years. Allison Knight represented Hines in the transaction. ...

... Purvin & Gertz will perform some cosmetic improvements to the space as part of the tenant improvement package, Hodges notes. Randall Walker and Cathy Hunter with Kirksey Architecture have been retained to design these improvements.
