Houston – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces it has been engaged by global workplace provider WeWork to support leasing efforts for 298,751 square feet of office space in four separate buildings in Houston’s Downtown, Galleria and The Woodlands submarkets. The firm’s Agency Leasing team will help WeWork target tenants with space needs ranging from 1,000 square feet to 60,000 square feet. 

“While WeWork will remain a home for anyone looking for a single desk, we are dedicated to accommodating the needs of midsize to larger tenants, as well,” said Jeff Bodenman, Texas Portfolio Director at WeWork. “We are incredibly enthusiastic about partnering with Transwestern on this endeavor.”

WeWork offers up to 50,000 square feet of contiguous space in Houston and has immediate availability at the following properties: Downtown’s 609 Main and The Jones Building at 708 Main; Galleria Office Tower I at 2700 Post Oak Blvd; and 1725 Hughes Landing in The Woodlands.

WeWork tenants gain exclusive access to conference and event rooms, onsite staff and tenant concierge, as well as use of co-working spaces worldwide. The Houston properties boast a variety of walkable amenities, including restaurants, hotels and retail, and some of the best views in the city.
