Ascension on the Bayou, a new 280-unit luxury apartment community in Houston Texas, includes a 10,000-sf co-working space within the complex. The project’s architect, Meeks + Partners, describes the WorkFlourish concept as Houston’s first co-working space within a luxury apartment complex.

WorkFlourish at Ascension on the Bayou allows start-ups and companies to “live, work, and play” all within one building. WorkFlourish includes a workspace in the main lounge, two conference rooms, a business center and meeting space, several individual work desks, a community kitchen, eight private offices, 25 corporate housing units, and a large media area with platform seating and a projector.

The LEED Silver building is located at the economic and population center of Houston. Residents will be close to CityCentre, Westchase District, Energy Corridor, Memorial City, and Chinatown. A shuttle will provide easy transportation to CityCentre and nearby Hershey Park allows residents to commute to work by bike rather than car.

Co-working space can be rented for $200 to $450 per month. A private office suite costs up to $3,200 per month. Apartment rents will range from $1,225 for a 658-sf unit to $2,600 for a 1,500-sf unit.

In addition to project architect Meeks + Partners, David Park, President of Houston-based real estate firm PRD Inc., and Trevor Hightower, Founder of WorkFlourish and a former Vice President at CBRE Group Inc.’s Houston office created the live/work concept included within Ascension on the Bayou.
