The Annex HTX (formerly known as The Co-Op HTX) is an innovative real estate development project blending retail and co-working in a central, creative space in Houston. The 10,000 square-foot multi-purpose development features retail shops, private offices, flexible co-working space and communal conference rooms. It aims to become a central hub that draws people in, sparks new ideas, and supports a collaborative community.

Owners Anne Le and Sandy Tran currently run three popular locations of their dessert and cafe´ series (Sweet and Tout Suite) in Houston, drawing large crowds and consistently delivering unique experiences that Houstonians love. They regularly heard from their customers about the need for a well-designed co-working space where entrepreneurs can connect and work.
The AnnexHTX will be designed and operated by this proven team and will be located in the same building as their beloved cafe´ and bakery, Tout Suite.
This cafe´ and restaurant has quickly become downtown’s “it” hangout spot for laptop workers and get-togethers. Tout Suite was voted the Best Neighborhood Spot Downtown (Houston Press) and runner-up in CultureMap Houston Tastemaker Awards as the Best New Restaurant in 2015. Tout Suite is also a regular among the top lists of coffee shops, brunches, desserts, breakfast sandwiches and all-around restaurants to check out in the Houston scene.
By building within the same location, The Annex HTX will be able to leverage the popular East Downtown (EaDo) location and its constant flow of traffic and exposure, targeting a built-in client base that is ready for a space designed especially for them.
The Annex HTX is a 10,000 square-foot co-working and mixed retail development.
Despite the global co-working industry registering tremendous growth over the last decade (Emergent Research: number of spaces grew from 14 in 2007 to 11,100 in 2016), Houston remains underserved compared to other US major cities. According to Symmetry50’s 2015 list, there was only one co-working space from Houston (START Houston) in the top 100 co-working spaces in the US.
With a vibrant gathering of mixed retail and private businesses, the design of the space is crafted for everyone to thrive. The Annex HTX is confident in its ability to sustain strong occupancy with its attractive location and array of convenient, affordable and flexible co-working options.
Popular cafe´ and restaurant Tout Suite is owned and operated by the team behind The Annex HTX. The two businesses will be located in the same building.
