WeWork is leasing 77,000 square feet of space at The Towers at Williams Square, the iconic office towers that have long defined the skyline of the Las Colinas Urban Center. The company will provide space on three floors in the central tower, which is WeWork’s first site in a suburban market in North Texas.
In Fort Worth, WeWork has a site in the Clearfork development and is planning to open two locations downtown.
In Las Colinas, the company plans to open the collaborative workspace on the 11th, 12th and 14th floors of The Towers of Williams Square’s central tower during the third quarter of 2019.
“There’s a great deal of interest in space at The Towers at Williams Square from innovative companies such as WeWork because of the building’s legacy, it’s strategic location and the city’s business-friendly environment,” said Bill Brokaw, senior vice president with Hillwood. “As the City of Irving continues working with residents and surrounding businesses on redesigning the plaza and augmenting the existing amenities, we’re confident we will remain a preferred corporate location.”
New York-based WeWork is known across the nation for providing shared workspaces designed for technology startups, small businesses and large enterprises. Office suites, private offices, shared workspaces and other options are available to a wide range of individual and corporate users. “WeWork chose the perfect spot—Irving, Texas. As one of the top tech markets in the country and one of the leading national and international corporate destinations, WeWork’s shared, professional workspace will help support our growing number of enterprise customers,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer.
Brokaw, the property manager for The Towers at Williams Square, represented the Williams Square ownership team, which is composed of Apollo Global Real Estate, Vanderbilt Partners and Hillwood Urban.
The Towers at Williams Square is composed of a 26-story center tower flanked by two, 14-story towers, and an adjacent five-story tower to round out the space. It is known for its distinctive pink granite and unique architecture. The office towers serve as the centerpiece of the Las Colinas Urban Center, which was developed by Ben Carpenter to transform his family ranch into a world-class development, and it has become the model for master-planned communities across the nation.
