Austin-based office provider Firmspace, a high-end operator that targets established professionals and small firms rather than startups, has announced its entrance into the Houston market.
One year ago, the company launched a second location in Denver and has plans to offer more flexible office spaces to more areas of the U.S. market.
The $5.5 million project plans on offering underserved amenities within the city’s coworking market and is “unlike anything we’ve ever done,” according to founder and CEO Matt Ferstler.
Firmspace’s new Houston location takes up 32,000 square feet in the BBVA Compass Plaza office tower in Uptown, which is the city’s second largest employment center.
The space is service, privacy and security-oriented with views of Uptown Houston’s main boulevard and skyline.
There are glass-walled offices, conference rooms and networking events, as well as frosted paneled private offices.
Houston is fourth nationally in total square feet of flex space and, with the rise of biotech and technology companies in the area, demand is expected to grow.
