JLL hired to lease prominent Texas Medical Center office building

Texas Children’s Hospital has tapped commercial real estate firm JLL to market and lease the 6624 Fannin Tower, one of the most recognizable buildings of the Texas Medical Center skyline.

JLL is targeting medical practices and research organizations as tenants in the building, which is about 65 percent occupied.

Topped by twin spires, the 27-story building contains nearly 450,000 square feet of medical space and is home to nearly 30 institutional and private practices, JLL said. Texas Children’s plans to bring additional retail amenities and refresh the building’s common areas. The tower was built in 1991.

“JLL is proud to work with Texas Children’s Hospital on this project,” Chris Wadley, head of JLL’s Healthcare Advisory Practice in Texas, said in an announcement. Wadley and Mallory Douthit are leading the leasing assignment. “6624 Fannin Tower is a wonderful facility for any medical practice or research organization looking for walkability within the TMC.”

JLL also manages the property on behalf of Texas Children’s, which acquired the building in 2016 from a partnership of Baylor College of Medicine and CHI St. Luke’s Health. Located along the METRO light rail, the building offers valet and garage parking.
