Lockton Place is a new midrise 8-story 186,000 SF office development in the Houston’s Westchase District. D.E. Harvey Builders provided construction management at risk services for the project. The project broke ground around March 2016 and was completed within 12 months. The building features amenities such as a café, fitness center, conference room, penthouse and outdoor terrace.
