Less than a year ago, DevMountain began its first web coding school in downtown Dallas, and it already needs more space.
“We have had a lot of success in the past year and we have plans for more growth in our programs,” Matt Hopkins, campus director for DevMountain’s Dallas operations center, told the Dallas Business Journal in an interview.
“We were looking for a space that would fit our needs and be a comfortable place for our students to study and work,” he said. DevMountain provides free housing for students during the 13-week bootcamp-style classes.
To meet its unique needs for work space and apartments, DevMountain turned to Mike Sarimsakci and his team behind the historic Butler Brother Building renovation across the street from Dallas City Hall.
Now, DevMountain has leased more than 10,000 square feet of space in the Butler Brothers Building at 500 S. Ervay. Work on the building is ongoing, but it has opened some of its apartments to tenants.
“This is a really good fit for use,” Hopkins told the Business Journal.
