WeWork Expands Its Houston Coworking Operation With New Downtown Location

WeWork, the coworking giant that’s blanketed the country with stylish office space for entrepreneurs and corporations, is planning its fourth Houston location since arriving here two years ago. The New York company has leased 56,000 square feet in downtown’s 609 Main, a new 48-story office tower between Texas Avenue and Capitol. The 609 Main building, developed and managed by Hines, is just a block away from WeWork’s first Houston location in the Jones building at 708 Main St. where it operates 86,000 square feet. Between both locations, WeWork will have more than 2,400 desks. WeWork often operates multiple locations near each other, the company said, citing examples in Dallas, Plano, Austin and other cities around the country. “We see businesses want to be in specific areas or neighborhoods,” said spokesman Leor Reef.
