HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Anchor Workspace has leased 17,600 SF in the 20 Greenway Plaza building for a coworking facility.
Anchor Workspace was represented by Cresa’s Sue Rogers and Steven Heal. The landlord was represented by Marilyn Guion, Steve Rocher and Trey Comiskey of CBRE. Anchor Workspace is a Houston firm led by Jan Paape.
“Landlords are looking for workspace providers to not only occupy space, but to serve as an amenity to their tenants,” said Cresa’s Sue Rogers, a principal in Cresa’s Houston office.
“Having available coworking space within the building could be seen as a real plus to potential occupiers who might be looking to expand in the near future or need short-term project space and are unable to be accommodated by the landlord,” Rogers said.
“Flexibility isn’t just for startups anymore,” Anchor Workspace owner Jan Paape said. “The real estate needs of the modern workforce are evolving, and occupiers need options as they transition to meet quickly changing market trends.”
“Not everyone is looking for the same coworking experience,” Paape said. “We wanted to create a balanced environment capable of accommodating a wide range of corporate users across a wide segment of demographics. We believe what is common among all of these user groups is they are focused primarily on flexibility, location and amenities, which we provide.”
Anchor Workspace, a privately owned workspace provider with more than 30 years of experience in the Houston market, is expanding their presence with a hybrid coworking solution that combines private offices with open, collaborative areas featuring upgraded finishes, exposure to natural light, premium services and walkability to neighborhood amenities. In addition, the space will feature food service areas and a private patio for event use.
