July 26, 2019 was a big day for Houston as Amazon opened its 18th tech hub in the country. With an office space meant to be occupied by 150 employees working in web services and covering everything from software engineering and data analytics to marketing and sales, the Amazon tech hub is expected to not only bring new jobs, but also programs to train prospects in the area for future careers in computer science.
The tech hub is to be in the Citycentre 5 building, part of the Citycentre complex. It’s one of the most recent office developments, offering 200,000 square feet of office space spread across 15 stories, along with 8,000 square feet of ground floor restaurant and retail space, as well as an integrated parking garage. The building also features Class A finishes throughout, as well as three floors with 20-foot ceilings. Amazon is occupying 25,000 square feet of the building located at 825 Town and Country Lane.
Citycentre, developed by Midway, is meant to be a self-contained community and includes everything from retail to office space, upscale apartments, green spaces, a fitness facility, and a cinema, among others. Apartments for rent in Houston near the best amenities the city can offer, as well as prime office spaces, are in high demand in the community. Houston-based Midway is a privately owned, fully integrated real estate investment and development firm.
