American Athletic Conference Signs 18,000 SF Office Lease in Irving for New Headquarters


The American Athletic Conference cited the metroplex’s central location, access to major airports and desirable residential neighborhoods as the primary reasons behind its decision to relocate from Rhode Island, its home for the last 30 years.

IRVING, TEXAS — The American Athletic Conference has signed an 18,000-square-foot office lease at The Summit at Las Colinas in Irving for its new headquarters. The company will relocate its 30 employees later this summer from Providence, R.I., where it has been based since 1979. Conor McCarthy and Jeremy McGown of JLL represented the conference in the lease negotiations. James Esquivel and Ahnie Sheehy, also with JLL, represented the landlord, Gemini Rosemont Commercial Real Estate. The 19-story, 376,000-square-foot Summit at Las Colinas currently houses tenants such as the College Football Playoff, Nexstar Media, JPMorgan Chase and General Motors. Renovations to the building’s common areas will begin later this year. The American Athletic Conference, formerly known as the Big East, comprises 11 members and includes two Texas educational institutions: the University of Houston and Southern Methodist University.
