KBR Tower to lose acronym, multiply into Towers at Cullen Center


Cara Smith over at the HBJ reports in a March 8, 2016 story that the Downtown KBR Tower will be renamed, and a second Cullen Center building will be encompassed in the rebranding, so as to make 500 Jefferson and 601 Jefferson collectively the plural Towers at Cullen Center

The article says W.P. Carey Inc. of New York now owns both buildings, though apparently through subsidiaries. HCAD records show the owner of the KBR Tower as 601 JEFFERSON TOWER (TX) LLC with an address in New York, and the other office building is shown as owned by 500 JEFFERSON TOWER TX LLC % W P CAREY INC.

Transwestern, will handle the leasing. KBR stands for Kellogg, Brown and Root.
