4411 San Felipe Tops Out and Signs New Lease

HOUSTON, October 1, 2021 – DC Partners, the real estate development and investment firm, announced today the topping out of 4411 San Felipe, a mixed-use mid-rise Class A+ office and retail building. Now 60% leased, DC Partners is also pleased to announce their newest tenant CIEL Restaurant + Lounge, a luxury dining experience from Le Ciel Hospitality.

CIEL Restaurant + Lounge has signed a 10-year lease on 8,117 square feet of first level retail space. Led by general partners Fasl Ty, Ryan Henry, and Adel Sadek, CIEL (pronounced SEA el) will deliver a sophisticated dining and entertainment experience, unique in Houston. The chef-driven menu will feature modern Japanese and French cuisine, craft cocktails and a curated selection of champagne, wine and beer. With live performers, a DJ and more, CIEL promises a distinctive, luxe environment where you can eat, drink and celebrate.

“We are so pleased to be part of 4411 San Felipe and have already enjoyed working with DC Partners,” said Ryan Henry, President and Co-Founder of Le Ciel Hospitality. “We are located in the middle of Houston’s premiere dining and entertainment area, and we can’t wait to bring this concept to life.”

Located inside I-610 West Loop South, 4411 San Felipe features a modern glass and steel edifice designed by HOK. The building features high-end retail on street-level, four-level podium parking garage and three floors of Class A+ office space. Offering the ideal “park and stay” work environment, the project is within walking distance to River Oaks District and is minutes from the Galleria and Uptown Park.

“4411 San Felipe is in a great location as it is part Galleria and River Oaks and that’s a big reason why tenants are quickly coming on board,” says Acho Azuike, chief operating officer for DC Partners.

Advancial Federal Credit Union, SIBS International and DC Partners, who will move their headquarters to the new building, have signed office leases. Construction is planned to be completed in Q4 2021.

The Colliers leasing teams for the building include Bill Insull, Blake Virgilio and Bob Parsley for the office portion and Hannah Tosch and Kim Lenardson for the retail portion. CIEL was represented by Doug Freedman of United Equities, Inc.

“We are pleased to see the progress of 4411 San Felipe, and look forward to the building be completed in December,” said Blake R. Virgilio, Vice President of Colliers. “The market has shown continued demand for new construction and we’re ready to continue the lease-up of Uptown’s newest mixed use development.”

DC Partners breaks ground on 4411 San Felipe mixed-use project near Galleria area

Houston-based DC Partners held a groundbreaking ceremony Jan. 28 for 4411 San Felipe, which is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to a press release.

The groundbreaking comes just over a month after Miami-based commercial real estate lender 3650 REIT announced it originated a $31 million loan for 4411 San Felipe. The 95,000-square-foot mixed-use project will consist of ground-floor retail and three levels of office space above three levels of parking. It’s being built on part of the site of the former Westcreek apartment complex, just like the Arabella high-rise condominium building DC Partners developed with Houston-based Randall Davis Co.

4411 San Felipe will total 77.2K SF of Class-A office space across seven floors and an outdoor terrace for tenants. There will also be 16.8K SF of retail and restaurant space, with additional outdoor dining and three levels of parking and valet. The mixed-use project will be situated next to DC Partners’ luxury Arabella condominium development, which was completed in 2018.

SIBS International Inc. will relocate its corporate offices to the new development, taking over the sixth floor. Advancial will open its first location inside the 610 Loop on a first-floor, 4K SF retail space. DC Partners will also be relocating its corporate offices from 2506 West Main.


Groundbreaking for Houston Office Building by DC Partners

“While there has been a lot of focus on the office and retail industry’s challenges as a result of the pandemic, we are very optimistic and excited to be 60 percent leased prior to construction,” said Acho Azuike, chief operating officer of DC Partners. “We have the opportunity to address the changing demands of office tenants and retailers and adapt our design to accommodate those needs.  4411 San Felipe offers a new type of live, work, and play with its prime location within steps of Houston’s most desirable high-rise living, shopping and dining, and neighborhoods.”
