At the onset of the pandemic, the coworking sector had a lot of soul-searching to do as employees left their offices and avoided crowded workspaces. Eventually, the savviest shared office operators realized that refocusing on the basics of their model — flexibility, proximity to customers and a sense of community — would be key to sparking renewed interest from workers and businesses.

In this way, Houston coworking spaces have proven their resilience, with many companies not only managing to keep their doors open, but also taking steps toward expanding their presence throughout the city’s neighborhoods. And, because choosing the right workspace for you or your entire team can be a time-consuming task given the range of options, CommercialSearch has assembled a list of premium coworking spaces in Space City for you to consider.
