Southwest Freeway Office Space for Lease or Rent Office Listings

CXRE Group has extensive expertise operating within the Southwest Freeway office building submarket. Generally, stretching from the 610 West-Southwest Freeway interchange, down to the Southwest Freeway intersection with Beltway 8, this is one of the strongest Class B submarkets in Houston.

Southwest Houston Freeway Office Market

Houston’s Southwest Freeway is the busiest freeway in Texas and one of the nation’s busiest stretches of freeway. Also known as US-59, the submarket lies between Uptown and Greenway/Upper Kirby. It winds its way through Sharpstown on the way to Sugar Land. However, the area is more than a ‘pass-through’. Not only does it have plenty of office space, shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and healthcare, but it is also near Rice University, the Museum district, and West University Place.

6671 Southwest Freeway — Prime, Professional Office Space

The Southwest Houston Freeway office market covers areas like Harwin and Hillcroft. In addition, it includes the US-59 South office building market. One of the major anchors of this submarket is 6671 Southwest Freeway. Located in Hillcroft, this prime office building is one of the most professional spaces in the area. Not only that, but it is also conveniently located just off the freeway, just northeast of Carmax Houston Southwest Freeway. In addition to the convenient location, the building also has an on-site deli, a multi-level parking garage, on-site security, and on-site management.

Outdoors, manicured landscaping greets visitors and employees. In the lobby, polished granite floors and walls set the tone. On top of that, the building is close all the local amenities — shopping, restaurants, hotels, banks, the post office, and Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital. It is also only a five-minute walk from the Hillcroft Ave./Gulfton Dr. METRO bus route stop. And it is close to hotels like the Crowne Plaza Houston Southwest Freeway.
