Spaces picks Kirby Grove for first Houston location

Houston Chronicle | 11.08.2017

Midway's Kirby Grove mixed-use development includes a 16-story building at 2925 Richmond next to Levy Park.

Spaces will bring its brand of workspaces for professionals and growing businesses to the Kirby Grove mixed-use development for its first Houston location.

The company, which was founded in Amsterdam, will occupy the sixth floor of Kirby Grove, totaling about 25,000 square feet, in the 16-story building next to Levy Park, according to developer Midway. Opening is planned in the spring.

"We offer a global network of workspaces and a full calendar of business events, speakers and networking lunches, and it all keeps members of our community engaged and open to new possibilities," vice president of network development, Americas at Spaces Michael Berretta said in an announcement.

The new location will have a 4,000-square-foot business club, 327 dedicated desks and two meeting rooms, according to Spaces.

With locations in the U.S., U.K., The Netherlands, Australia and Asia, Spaces caters to freelancers, entrepreneurs, international workers, mobile workers, startups and established companies.

Spaces entered Texas with a Dallas location. It plans to open in Southlake near Dallas next year.

Houston-based Midway developed Kirby Grove, which includes retail spaces and apartments, with institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management. The project is on Richmond near Kirby in Upper Kirby.

"For most of us, work is more collaborative and the pace of change continues to accelerate," Midway CEO Jonathan Brinsden said. "Office spaces that can adapt to meet the needs of rapidly expanding teams or to reflect the wide variety of roles business people have to fill is a competitive advantage." 

Midway's other area developments include GreenStreet and The Jones on Main, both in partnership with Lionstone Investments downtown, and CityCentre in west Houston.
