WeWork Opens Second Location In Downtown Houston
WeWork is taking a bigger share of the coworking market in Downtown Houston.
The company is opening a 56K SF location at 609 Main at Texas. The lease spans the 25th and 26th floors. Hines developed and manages the 48-story, 1M SF office tower.
This marks the second WeWork office in Downtown, expanding from The Jones Building at 709 Main St. Other local locations include WeWork Galleria Office Tower 1 and 1725 Hughes Landing in The Woodlands.
“Houston is a thriving business hub and innovative city,” WeWork General Manager Nathan Lenahan said in a release. “We are excited to expand our footprint with a second location downtown and continue to strengthen the WeWork network with the opening of 609 Main Street.”
WeWork members will have 24/7 building access, micro-roasted coffee, community events and business services. At 609 Main at Texas, members will have access to the lobby café and a fitness center.
“The modern office is evolving and providing a coworking component is essential to a building’s long-term viability," Hines Senior Managing Director Philip Croker said in a release. "Adding a tenant of WeWork’s caliber further reinforces the strength of 609 Main and will deliver an outstanding amenity for the building and its future occupants.”
