HOUSTON, TX – February 22, 2021 – CityPlace, a best-in-class urban mixed-use district anchoring Springwoods Village, will soon be home to the relocated Texas – and Greater Houston area – branch of San Jose, CA-based First Tech Federal Credit Union, the nation’s seventh largest credit union. The nearly 70-year-old financial institution, which serves many of the world’s leading technology-oriented companies and their employees, has executed a lease for a 2,188-square-foot, street level space at 1701 City Plaza Drive. A summer debut is anticipated.
To be conveniently located directly across from CityPlace Plaza, First Tech Federal Credit Union will join Island Grill and an Edward Jones branch on the ground floor of the 10-story building. The American Bureau of Shipping occupies the entirety of the remaining office space.
First Tech Federal Credit Union was represented in the transaction by Ronnie Deyo of JLL. Crystal Allen of Transwestern, along with Dennis Tarro of Patrinely Group, represented CityPlace, a joint venture of Patrinely Group, USAA Real Estate and CDC Houston.
