Kirby Grove lands Spa­ces, which caters to free­lancers and en­trepreneurs.

Spa­ces will bring its brand of workspaces for pro­fes­sion­als and grow­ing busi­nesses to the Kirby Grove mixed-use devel­op­ment for its first Hous­ton lo­ca­tion.

The com­pany, which was founded in Am­s­ter­dam, will oc­cupy the sixth floor of Kirby Grove, tak­ing up about 25,000 square feet, in the 16-story build­ing next to Levy Park, ac­cord­ing to de­vel­oper Mid­way. Open­ing is planned in the spring.

“We of­fer a global net­work of workspaces and a full cal­en­dar of busi­ness events, speak­ers and net­work­ing lunches, and it all keeps mem­bers of our com­mu­nity en­gaged and open to new pos­si­bil­i­ties,” Michael Ber­retta, vice pres­i­dent of net­work devel­op­ment for the Amer­i­cas at Spa­ces, said in an an­nounce­ment.

With lo­ca­tions in the Nether­lands, the U.S., the United King­dom, Aus­tralia and Asia, Spa­ces caters to free­lancers, en­trepreneurs, in­ter­na­tional work­ers, mo­bile work­ers, star­tups and estab­lished com­pa­nies.

Spa­ces, which has been ex­pand­ing un­der the own­er­ship of Re­gus, en­tered Texas with a Dal­las lo­ca­tion in 2016. It plans to open in South­lake, near Fort Worth, next year.

Hous­ton-based Mid­way de­vel­oped Kirby Grove, which in­cludes re­tail spa­ces and apart­ments, with in­sti­tu­tional in­vestors ad­vised by J.P. Mor­gan As­set Man­age­ment. The project is on Rich­mond near Kirby in Up­per Kirby.

“We of­fer a global net­work of workspaces …”
