Client Objectives

  • Spire was in the market to establish a Houston office that would help attract and retain top talent, wanting to balance quality of space with cost to meet all their corporate objectives.
  • The client needed to determine the best location to set up trading operations as well as asset management.
  • To meet their own tight schedule, Spire was seeking a short-term location to get the business unit up and running while a long-term solution could be negotiated.


  • Cresa secured co-working space for two different business units, getting Spire operational within a month in the CBD
  • Cresa then performed a multi-submarket location study before identifying a short list of potential buildings.
  • To maximize leverage and maximize the best cost to quality ratio, Cresa negotiated with multiple landlords simultaneously.
  • In addition, Spire was provided a competitive analysis with benchmarking to set a baseline for the client’s real estate needs and help them make an informed decision.
