Stream Realty has completed two office lease transactions totaling roughly 72,000 square feet in Houston. The deals involved tenants GTC Technology International and Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr P.C. Earlier this year, Stream represented the landlord in an 18,463-square-foot lease with the Greater Houston Community Foundation at 515 Post Oak Road.

A global licensor of process technologies, GTC Technology signed on for 41,846 square feet at 900 Threadneedle St., a 188,575-square-foot office building in the city’s Energy Corridor. The 1982-built property underwent extensive renovations in 2016 and has been part of Accesso Partners’ portfolio since August 2012, according to Yardi Matrix.

Stream Managing Director Anthony Squillante and Vice President Josh Morrow represented GTC Technology, while Bob Cromwell and Kevin Nolan with Moody Rambin worked on behalf of the landlord in the negotiations.

“(The property) provides the perfect environment for our client to run its growing business given its location (close) to amenities in the Energy Corridor submarket,” Squillante said in prepared remarks.
