Texas-based shared office space provider Meridian Business Centers has changed its name to WorkSuites and will be expanding in the Houston market.
A 15,001-square-foot location will open on the third floor of 510 Bering in September.
A 19,629-square-foot WorkSuites will open on the top floor of Sugar Creek Center, 77 Sugar Creek Blvd., Sugar Land, on Oct. 15. The building is owned by Dallas-based Velosis.
Existing offices at 5100 Westheimer across from the Galleria, and 11811 North Freeway at Beltway 8 in north Houston will undergo cosmetic upgrades and get new services and amenities, the company said.
“The Houston office space climate is very dynamic and the variety of flexible workspace options here is growing rapidly,” CEO Flip Howard said in an announcement. “We are excited to be expanding and serving more areas of Houston with our updated model of private offices in a professional community centered on productivity.”
One more Houston area location is planned in 2019 as well as up to four additional locations in 2019, the company said.
John Pelletier and Greg Burns of ESRP negotiated the new leases for WorkSuites along with Dan Boyles and Michael Mannella of NAI Partners in Houston. Stream Realty Partners represented the building owners.
WorkSuites operates 13 locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The new brand results from a change in ownership structure.
