The ‘green giant’ advisor will launch its first coworking unit, 67,000 sq ft in PwC Tower at Park District in Dallas, later this year. Park District is a new development by MetLife Investment Management and property company Trammell Crow.

CBRE announced its coworking concept in November and has since been developing “strategic relationships with portfolio owners with Class A assets in select cities across the globe”, according to a spokeswoman. “We have a strong pipeline of future locations and partnerships that we look forward to continuing to announce.

“Hana has a global rollout strategy that focuses on the top 25 global metropolitan areas, with initial markets in the US and London.”

The shared office is expected to open in mid-2019 and offer three tiers.

  • Hana Team will provide private customisable office suites to meet the needs of organisations with 15 to 300 employees.
  • Hana Meet is conference and event space that can be rented on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.
  • Hana Share will offer shared desks and coworking environments ideal for small teams and freelancers.

CBRE created Hana as its version to rival operators such as WeWork, offering landlords another option. “Our flexible approach provides owners and employers a plug-and-play solution that enables people and teams to accomplish great things,” said Andrew Kupiec, CEO of Hana. PwC Tower at Park District is comprised of more than 500,000 sq ft. It is part of a two-tower mixed-use development, Park District, that will eventually boast more than 900,000 sq ft of office space, restaurants and residential.

“There are myriad choices for owners when it comes to selecting co-working companies, but we believe Hana’s product offering is thoughtfully designed and offers the right mix of office co-working solutions to our stakeholders at PwC Tower at Park District,” said Kurt Day, managing director of MetLife Investment Management.
