This Week’s Houston Deal Sheet

Amsterdam-based coworking company Spaces inked a 53K SF lease for the first three floors of Two Post Oak Central.

This marks the second Spaces’ location in Houston, a market that is starting to pick up the pace of coworking growth.

The building is within the mixed-use campus Post Oak Central in the Uptown area. The company is scheduled to open there in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“The addition of this offering responds to a key Parkway objective: to provide active and engaging work environments that maximize flexibility, efficiency, and productivity for users of all sizes,” Post Oak Central Leasing Manager Amanda Nebel said in a release. “We are proud to welcome an industry innovator to a dynamic and convenience-oriented location.”

Spaces’ members will have access to a range of amenities, including an internal stairwell, several meeting areas and a private 1,700 SF landscaped terrace. They will also have access to the building’s assets such as an activated central green, a conference center, a fitness center, restaurants and a child care center.

Spaces’ first Houston location was in the Upper Kirby District and brings the Texas total to four, including two sites in the Dallas area.

Houston is a city on the rise for entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses, IWG Vice President Network Development Michael Berretta said. IWG acquired Spaces in 2015.

“We are excited to expand our footprint in the area and provide a flexible working environment that gives companies of all sizes the opportunity to thrive and build connections,” he said. “Whenever we consider a new location, we prioritize the things most important to our members — a dynamic neighborhood, convenient transportation and robust amenities. The Post Oak Central location fit all the criteria and was an ideal spot for our next Houston opening.”

Earlier this month, JLL Senior Vice President Beau Bellow told a Bisnow crowd that coworking companies still had plenty of room for growth within the Houston office market. The sector is still in its beginning stages, and companies are expected to enter and expand.

Coworking company WeWork announced earlier this month it will add a location in The Woodlands, bringing its total to three here. Developers are also adding coworking as an apartment amenity.

Nebel and Eric Siegrist represented Parkway Property Investments. CBRE’s Kevin Saxe, Kevin Kushner and Mike Cleary represented Spaces.
