Events Raw Space

The Hub @ Greenway Plaza

Ideally positioned midway between Downtown and Uptown Houston, the landmark Greenway Plaza campus spans 52 acres, 11 LEED Gold certified buildings and nearly five million square feet. Considered a pioneering example of mixed-use development in the country, the premier city center business destination offers a range of COVID- responsive features and premium, move-in ready Class A office spaces. The pedestrian-friendly campus incorporates numerous green and outdoor gathering areas, along with a bike share program and three fitness facilities, including the recently opened 80,000-square-foot Life Time with rooftop resort pools. At the heart of the campus is The Hub, an activated indoor plaza providing convenient access to elevated food and beverage options, service providers, co-working, childcare and a full-service hotel. Under Parkway’s management and through reinvestment in its significant architecture and amenities, Greenway Plaza continues to stay on the forefront of the market.
