As recently reported, Hines, the international real estate firm, has announced its partnership with Industrious, the largest premium flexible workspace provider in the U.S., to introduce a workplace platform known as Hines²  (Hines Squared).

Hines² is a comprehensive tenant amenity, property management, and services offering. The platform will focus on enterprise clients and deliver premium workplace environments in Hines buildings, which will be known as The Square. Hines²  is launching immediately at 717 Texas, a 33-story Class A office tower in Houston; and The Kearns Building, a 10-story, 167,000-square-foot office building in Salt Lake City.

Hines’ workplace services offering will serve as a complement to our existing office capabilities, strengthening our position as the preferred partner for tenants and investors around the world, without changing our risk profile or leasing strategy. It’s a natural extension of our vertically integrated operating model. In evaluating potential partners for this new offering, Industrious came across as a clear leader in the space. Their ability to deliver high-quality workplaces, exceptional service, and engaging programming is completely aligned with our vision for Hines².”

— Charlie Kuntz, innovation officer, Hines

Industrious was selected as an operating partner after a lengthy and intensive vetting process across the coworking industry. Industrious will operate both Hines² spaces with future projects across the Hines portfolio already in the pipeline.

Over the past six years, we’ve been laser-focused on understanding the evolving needs of the modern occupier and developing workspaces that fit their needs. Partnering with Hines to bring their Hines² vision to life allows us to expand on our mission of making people proud and excited to come to work. We’re proud to have been selected as a partner-of-choice for this exciting new venture.”

— Jamie Hodari, CEO and co-founder, Industrious

Industrious will operate the initial amenitized, flexible workspace center at The Square, a physical location within Hines² properties where businesses experience all the platform has to offer—whether to gather and take advantage of the coworking and flexible office options, meeting and event services, food and beverage, and collaborative zones—or participate in robust community programming.
