Honeywell Relocates, Expands within Westchase District

Honeywell logo
Hot on the heels of Bill.com's 25,000 square-foot lease at CityWestPlace, Bisnow and the Houston Business Journal recently reported that global software solution firm Honeywell will relocate and expand within Westchase District, leasing 114,000 square feet at 2103 CityWest Boulevard.

Later this year, Honeywell will move about 750 employees from the Honeywell Building at 1250 West Sam Houston Parkway South to its new headquarters about half a mile away.

"We see it as a vote of confidence in the District and what it can provide to large employers," Sherry Fox, Westchase District's vice president of communications, told the Journal.

"CityWestPlace offers contemporary space that will help us attract talent and facilitate collaboration in the development of our market-leading solutions," said Honeywell spokeswoman Cynthia Colman.

West Houston Institute Offers Solution Design Center

High Tech, High Touch: Irma Sanchez, Westchase District's vice president of projects, manipulates comments projected onto an interactive touch-wall hosting a cloud-based visual collaboration system at the Collaboratorium.
When Westchase District's Board of Directors met last fall for their annual retreat, they convened in an innovative 4,000-square-foot solution design center at Houston Community College's West Houston Institute, located at 2811 Hayes Road.

The space is called the Collaboratorium and in it trained facilitators conduct workshops using an interactive touchscreen that resembles something from the sci-fi movie Minority Report. It's a unique facility that employs the latest technology in the service of inspiring fresh thinking and creative solutions for tackling tough tasks.
