WeWork To Open Second Location In Uptown

Quote:
With its first Houston location set to open Downtown this fall, WeWork is already busy working on a second. The New York-based co-working company will open a location at Galleria Tower I at 2700 Post Oak in Uptown. A permit uncovered by the Houston Business Journal shows the company will occupy at least the 20th floor with a build-out cost of $4.8M. Floor plates are roughly 22K SF in the building. It is unclear when the space will open, or how much WeWork will end up occupying. A source close to the build-out told Bisnow the Galleria location will be bigger than the one at 708 Main, which is 86K SF.

Yeah, the photos are devastating. I've got a lot of family there that are all accounted for. So far no home damage even though many of them have water up to their front yards now...I know that's not the case for everyone. Thoughts and prayers with you, Houston! If I were Stateside, I'd be there in person to help in any way I could. Stay strong!

The good news is most major highways that lead in & out of the Houston area has reopened. Hobby & Bush Airports also have reopened with limited services, and the city has started draining access water that has flooded buildings. Also the port will reopen in a few hrs.

Here's hoping for everyone to still be safe out there in
H-Town.

Agreed with all the well wishes. Can't wait to see Houston bounce right back!

I used to live in the Houston Heights before I moved to Pittsburgh. I can't find really any info online about how the hurricane affected the neighborhood. I hope the Heights escaped most of the devastation, it being one of the only pre WW2 intact neighborhoods in the city. Would hate to see those beautiful 1900's-1920's houses demolished.

A list of neighborhoods that made it through Harvey with few problems was cited by the Houston Chronicle and apparently includes the Heights. Here's a link to the article:

Well, it seems the cities historic pre war hoods were largely unneffected, which is some good news, and that means the house prices in those neighborhoods will go through the roof as I'm sure neighborhoods that were flooded will depreciate greatly.

I'm glad your old neighborhood was probably OK. The Heights is pretty special and it would be awful to see it damaged.

I was thinking that if a neighborhood didn't flood with 40-50 inches of rain, it's probably not going to flood in the lifetime of most existing people, even with increasing growth.

I can guarantee I wouldn't buy a home that had ever flooded.

Same here.... there will be some empty lots because of buyouts.

I doubt this will be the last time we will get this much rain in our lifetimes or even the next 10 - 15 years... ugh.
