DALLAS, TEXAS – January 3, 2017 – In the past two weeks, Common Desk has finalized two large expansions– one in Plano and one in Deep Ellum, and they are currently finalizing a third expansion in Fort Worth to bring their count to four DFW locations by the end of 2017.
Common Desk is getting ready to triple its DFW footprint in 2017 to combat the introduction of two national competitors to the Dallas coworking landscape and to continue meeting shared office needs in the DFW metroplex. Common Desk has been providing Dallas with an independent coworking experience since 2012, and its current spaces are in the heart of Deep Ellum and Oak Cliff Dallas, totalling 20,000 square feet.
In Plano, they’ve signed a 27,000 square foot deal with Granite Properties at Granite V, the newest building in Granite Park. Granite Park, located on the southeast corner of 121 and the Tollway, currently has over 20 restaurant concepts in place. In addition, Granite Properties is soon to open a Boardwalk designed to mimic Dallas’ Trinity Groves project. Common Desk – Granite Park will feature many of the same aesthetics that Common Desk members are used to seeing such as a bar / restaurant vibe, mezzanine space, quirky amenities, and craft beers on tap.
“We are opening our largest location to date in Granite Park because of the accessibility, walkability, and visibility that Granite Park provides. We are confident that Plano is more than ready for their first coworking concept.”
– Nick Clark, Founder of Common Desk
But Common Desk isn’t stopping there– in addition to the launch of their Plano space, they’re responding to the growth of Deep Ellum by expanding their original location. The 4,500 square foot expansion will include a newly renovated exterior, an outdoor patio and conference room, a relaxation room, showers, and additional dedicated offices.
“As a company, we are making a push towards hospitality. Each of our new spaces will feature a hospitality bar at every entrance, staffed by a full-time host position. We want our members to feel welcome each time they walk into our spaces.”
-MaryClaire Perry, Director of People and Culture
Alt+Co Launch is representing Common Desk as they work to finalize their fourth location in the West 7th district of Fort Worth. Fort Worth already has a handful of great locally-owned coworking spaces, and Common Desk sees the opening of a Fort Worth space as an opportunity to help grow the cause of coworking as a whole throughout the city and its surrounding areas. Their Fort Worth space is approximately 13,000 square feet and is set to open next summer. It is walkable to all of the great restaurants and retail in the West 7th area.
If you visit thecommondesk.com, you’ll notice that the site is new and brand has been refreshed. Their new website has been carefully crafted to give users a taste of coworking before they ever enter into a coworking space. Common Desk worked with local artists and web developers to create the new site and further reflect both the nature of coworking and the significant growth that the Common Desk brand is going to see in 2017.
Common Desk – Granite Park and Common Desk – Deep Ellum’s expansion are both slated to open in the Spring of 2017.
