One of the biggest contributors to the region’s economy, Downtown’s 4,300-plus businesses are housed in over 51 million square feet of office space, distributed across several of Houston’s most iconic, historic and modern office buildings.
From traditional office floors to contemporary co-working spaces, the Downtown office market features a variety of options to suit different corporate cultures. Downtown’s growing network of technology incubators, co-working, and collaborative spaces, including Station Houston, DesignHive, Accenture’s Innovation Center and Houston’s first WeWork, foster innovation and growth, and demonstrate its commitment to creating an underlying environment for its growing community of entrepreneurs and innovators to thrive.
New office construction and recent renovations emphasize flexibility, innovation, collaboration and sustainability. Downtown leads green efforts in the region, with almost 64 LEED certified projects totaling 47.7 million square feet, including three LEED Certified Core and Shell Platinum buildings, and 42 Energy Star Certified buildings.
Business executives, young professionals and their clients are only walking distance from an array of business support services and much coveted quality of life amenities, including high-end and fast casual restaurants, luxury hotels, and event centers. Well-established public transit, innovative mixed-use spaces, acres of landscaped and programmed outdoor spaces, and the live-work-play and 24-7 vibrancy of Downtown make it the top choice for businesses and their employees.
