Commercial Tenant Engagement Leader, Equiem, Continues to Expand U.S Presence at 5 Houston Center in Houston, Texas
5 Houston Center to Introduce Equiem’s Cutting-Edge Platform
at Destination Office Tower
January 23, 2019
Global property technology and services company, Equiem, has rolled out its market-leading digital tenant engagement platform at 5 Houston Center in Houston, Texas.
Situated in downtown Houston and comprising over 580,000 sq. ft of Class A office space, the 27-story 5 Houston Center is leased to a wide range of tenants, including Bank of Texas and professional services company EY, which occupies approximately 120,000 sq. ft of space.
The introduction of Equiem’s platform is part of a wider improvement program at 5 Houston Center, which has taken place over the last year and has included improvements to the building’s lobby, fitness facilities and lounge areas, all designed to deliver upgraded amenities and public spaces for existing and prospective tenants.
Available as an app, Equiem’s platform acts as a full-service concierge platform providing tenants at the building with access to a variety of services, events and experiences, from ordering coffee to submitting facility requests, to regular community events and communicating with other tenants. Following a series of launch events held by Equiem in October, including giveaways, competitions and complimentary food, already more than 500 occupants have registered for the app from tenancies such as EY, Trafigura and Bank of Texas. The Property Management team manages the app at 5 Houston Center with guidance from Equiem.
“Implementing our platform at 5 Houston Center is further evidence that commercial owners across the U.S. are recognizing the value in Equiem’s uniquely curated and data-driven approach to tenant engagement,” said Gabrielle McMillan, CEO of Equiem. “Amenitization is still a new concept in the Houston office market and our work at 5 Houston Center will showcase how the smart and strategic engagement of tenants allows landlords to unlock new value in their assets and enhance the culture of their office buildings.”
Founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2011, Equiem provides an intelligent technology platform that allows for streamlined communications, effective operations and deeper engagement between commercial landlords and their tenants. The launch at 5 Houston Center is Equiem’s first site in Texas and the 18th building in the U.S. to roll out the Equiem experience, following launches elsewhere in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia.
