Houston-based Midway, the privately owned, fully integrated real estate investment and development firm, today announced Impact Networking has leased a full floor of office space in the first phase of its East River mixed-use development. At 16,000 square-feet, the space marks the largest office lease confirmed for the project to-date. Impact Networking’s building-top signage on the exterior of East River 1 will further solidify the company’s significant presence at East River. Midway is also entering into a partnership with Impact Networking as its new managed IT service provider. As a result of this significant leasing success, Midway has commenced vertical construction on the retail, restaurant and offices spaces for Phase I, with Burton Construction retained as commercial general contractor.
“We are thrilled that Impact Networking has chosen to office at East River, and we look forward to continuing our partnership as the company expands their presence in the region,” said Anna Deans, Vice President of Investment and Development. “Across the board, our tenants are telling us that amenity-rich environments that service the social and collaborative benefits of being at work are what they want – this is precisely what East River will deliver.”
