TDCJ offices moving to mall

HUNTSVILLE — The Texas Department of Criminal Justice will be relocating two of its Huntsville-based offices later this year, and will occupy an additional 50,000 square foot of Huntsville’s West Hill Mall.

TDCJ’s Human Resources and Health Services Division,  currently located in the 84,000 square foot “old Wal-Mart” building on State Highway 30, will be relocating into newly remodeled offices at the mall in the coming months.

“The current lease for the building on Highway 30 went into default because of contract compliance issues,” TDCJ Public Information Officer Jason Clark said. “The Texas Facilities Commission then issued a request for proposal, and awarded the contract to the owners of West Hill Mall.”

According to Clark, “substantial work by mall owners” is currently taking place to accommodate the move of the current offices to the mall.

“TDCJ’s Private Facility Contract Monitoring and Oversight Division, Contracts and Procurement, Facilities Division and Rehabilitation Program Division currently have office space at the mall,” Clark said.  “When the relocation is complete, TDCJ offices will encompass approximately 112 thousand square feet at the mall.”

TDCJ officials hope to see the relocation take place sometime in late summer or early fall. No other moves of TDCJ offices to the mall are planned beyond that.

“TDCJ currently does not have request for proposals out at this time for lease space,” Clark said.

West Hill Mall officials did not wish to comment on the relocation or remodeling taking place there.
