ROY Ceramics SE focusses on real estate development and asset management in Houston. The Greater Houston Area features an unrivalled combination of economic strength and resiliency. ROY´s investment portfolio in Houston consists of the following projects:
Kirby Interchange includes a rentable area of 27,264 m2, spread over eight buildings, on a property covering 58,801 m2 in total. The units are predominantly used as office space. ROY plans to improve the occupancy rate and optimize the rental income. The properties are strategically located one block south of the intersection of Kirby Drive and Loop 610 one kilometer away from NRG Stadium and in the growth path of the Texas Medical Center, the largest Medical Center in the world.
3300 Main Street
The project involves the construction of a high-rise with approximately 328 residential units and approximately 1,380 m² of retail space on the ground floor. The site is centrally located in Houston, equidistant between the Texas Medical Center and Downtown. The project will take approximately two years to build and stabilization is expected within two years after that. The total investment will be approximately USD ~130 million, of which ROY is investing USD 29.0 million in equity. Construction costs will be secured by a guaranteed maximum price contract. ROY’s project partners are a leading property developer in the US with a proven track record of successfully developing such projects and a Fortune 500 US based engineering and design firm. Construction began in May 2018. It is planned that the project will be sold after it is completed and stabilized. Leasing of the units is expected to start in Q4 2019 with project stabilization expected by Q2 2021.
