Coworking spaces are all the rage in North Texas as startups and freelancers look for offices with flexible lease terms.
Last week, the Dallas Business Journal reported that WeWork will open an 80,000-square-foot coworking space in Thanksgiving Tower, its largest space in the country.
That’s in addition to WeWork’s announcement that it’s opening a space on McKinney Avenue in Uptown. That space is under construction now.
In all, more than 300,000 square feet of coworking space has been absorbed within the downtown/Uptown area in two years, Downtown Dallas Inc. President Kourtny Garrett told the DBJ.
“The day of the big 100,000-square-foot tenant is few and far between as workplaces seek to be more efficient, which has created a demand for more and more creative office space,” Garrett told the DBJ “Landlords are responding to that demand for a different type of work environment.”
