Remote and mobile workers in north Houston now have a new space to set up shop. Common Desk, the Texas-based coworking and hospitality brand, has opened the doors to its sixth Houston location in Spring's City Place mixed-use hub.
Common Desk — City Place (1401 Lake Plaza Dr.) offers workers more than 25,000 square feet of workspace across the first and second floors, per a release. Members can expect five conference rooms, 62 private offices, 5 office suites, and generous shared coworking space.
Amenities include convenient chat booths, wellness room, full kitchen, and Fiction Coffee espresso bar. Members can also enjoy a furnished terrace on the second floor.
All this comes as part of what Common Desk calls its "lineup of perks": an open network of locations, bottomless craft coffee, easy conference room bookings, and fast, secure Wi-Fi.
Playing to the nearby Woodlands landscape, Common Desk - City Place is adorned with deep, earthy tones and white oak accents, native Texas floral and botanical prints, organic leafy murals by local artists, a wall adorned with tree slices, and antique decor, per press materials. Large windows and terraces let the sunlight in and offer a glimpse of outdoor nature.
“As Common Desk continues to grow into experiential assets across Houston, City Place became the clear choice for a suburban location in Spring,” said Dawson Williams, head of real estate at Common Desk, in a statement. “The building, ownership, and mixed use development all align with exactly what we're looking for in a new location. We're excited to bring our daymaking experiences to City Place.”
First launched in Dallas in 2012, Common Desk recently announced its expanded space in The Ion, as well as a location in downtown. The company has grown to 22 locations in Dallas, Houston, and Austin. The company has also branched out to two North Carolina cities: Wilmington and Raleigh.
