Spring, Texas – April 5th, 2017: A master development venture comprising Patrinely Group, USAA Real Estate Company, and CDC Houston, announced today that HP Inc. has signed a long-term lease in Springwoods Village. The campus will be located on 12 acres near the intersection of Interstate 45 North and the Grand Parkway.
HP will occupy 378,000 square feet in two office buildings and will house approximately 2,400 employees. The project will begin construction in early 2017 and be completed by third quarter 2018. The new HP campus will be located east of CityPlace at Springwoods Village, also being developed by the Patrinely Group led master development venture, and just north of the Southwestern Energy headquarters, which was developed by Patrinely Group and opened in 2014.
Brandon Clarke, Charles Gordon, Alexander Somerville, Ryan Roth, and Andrew Zeplain of CBRE represented HP. Dennis Tarro of Patrinely Group and Chrissy Wilson of JLL represented the landlord.
The HP campus will be connected by a bridge to CityPlace Plaza, a lakefront public plaza designed as a gathering place for office workers, residents, and visitors, and a point of linkage to Springwood Village’s lake and park system, with trails connecting to the Spring Creek Greenway. The public plaza will include an activated open space and an amphitheater for both private and public events.
[blockquote style=”2″]“HP will be able to enjoy all of the first-class amenities we will offer within CityPlace and Springwoods Village,” said Robert Fields, president, and CEO of Patrinely Group. “Our clients are looking for new, state-of-the-art buildings in a vibrant upscale setting. We offer a compelling new address for corporations wishing to recruit and retain the brightest young talent from around the world.”[/blockquote]
“We are proud to have Patrinely Group and CDC Houston as our development partners, and securing our second major build-to-suit office in Houston in 2016 for our venture is both rewarding and encouraging,” said Len O’Donnell, president, and CEO of USAA Real Estate Company. In May, American Bureau of Shipping signed a pre-lease to occupy the office component of the new 326,800-square-foot CityPlace 2.
[blockquote style=”2″]“With ExxonMobil, Southwestern Energy and CHI St. Luke’s open for business, and ABS and HP moving here, it is becoming clear that major employers are recognizing the benefits of Springwoods Village’s location and its high quality walkable and mixed use environment,” said Keith Simon, executive vice president of CDC Houston.[/blockquote]
CityPlace is a 60-acre fully-integrated, mixed-use development that will provide the Houston community with a new destination of choice that integrates working, shopping and living, and will include 4 million square feet of Class A office space with 400,000 square feet of integrated retail space, a full-service hotel and additional luxury multifamily projects, when fully developed.
Springwoods Village is a 2,000-acre, mixed-use community situated along the west side of I-45 between Springwoods Village Parkway and the Grand Parkway. Designed for sustainability, when completed the nature-inspired residential and commercial community will provide diverse housing options, civic facilities, outdoor recreation and a 60-acre CityPlace with office space, shopping, dining and lodging in an urban, walkable environment.

Bernie’s Backyard Food Truck Park Closes It’s Doors
Spring, Texas – September 16th, 2017: After just two years in business, Bernie’s Backyard has officially closed their doors. The announcement came as a surprise to many when a for lease sign was placed on the property and an announcement was posted to their Facebook page.
“Bernie’s Backyard is suspending operations until further notice. The hurricane has affected our infrastructure. We appreciate all of you who have supported us. We will be closed until further notice. Thank you all!”
Although Bernie’s Backyard didn’t directly state they were closing their doors on Facebook, their staff confirmed with Spring Happenings via a direct message that they have closed the facility.
We stopped by to assess the damage to their “infrastructure” but found several perfectly standing buildings with not apparent damage to the exterior and an empty parking lot where the food trucks once parked.
Doug Powell posted a review to Google just four weeks ago saying “Bernie needs to get his act together. Friday @ 1pm and only 2 out of 5 trucks are open? And $6.50 for a draft beer??”
Bernie’s Backyard would not comment on specifics of their closing but did tell us that the property is for lease at a rate of $15,000.00 per month.
Harvey Upgraded To Category 2 Hurricane; Sustained Winds Nearing 110 MPH
Spring, Texas – August 25th, 2017 (NHC): Hurricane Harvey is dangerously approaching the Texas coast, centered as of 5 a.m. CDT about 165 miles (265 km) southeast of Corpus Christi. On the forecast track, Harvey will make landfall on the middle Texas coast tonight or early Saturday. Harvey is then likely to meander near or just inland of the middle Texas coast through the weekend. Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts – a strong Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible, and Harvey is expected to become a major hurricane with sustained winds up to 120 mph before it reaches the middle Texas coast.
A Storm Surge Warning continues from Port Mansfield to High Island Texas and a Storm Surge Watch from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Warning continues from Port Mansfield to Sargent and a Tropical Storm Warning from north of Sargent to High Island and from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande. A Hurricane Watch continues from south of Port Mansfield Texas to the Mouth of the Rio Grande and a Tropical Storm Watch continues from south of the Mouth of the Rio Grande to Boca de Catan, Mexico.
Harvey is expected to be a major hurricane at landfall, bringing life-threatening storm surge, rainfall, and wind hazards to portions of the Texas coast. Preparations to protect life and property should be completed this morning, as tropical-storm-force winds will first arrive in the hurricane and storm surge warning areas later today.
