You might think Denver has its fill of coworking spaces for laptop-bound strangers who desire to work near other laptop-bound strangers.
But there’s apparently room in the market for the global workspace provider Regus, which plans to expand its local portfolio with the opening of Spaces Denver – Ballpark later this month.
The coworking space is set to debut Feb. 27 in the nearly 104-year-old McPhee and McGinnity Building at 2301 Blake St. The building once housed The McPhee and McGinnity Co., a regional supplier of building materials, and later the Denver Fire Clay Co.
Sitting at the corner of 23rd and Blake streets, the building was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1984. The 50,614-square-foot space was sold to 2301 Blake Steet Investors LLC in July for $21.2 million.
Spaces won’t be your ping-pong playing kind of place.
“Regus launched the Spaces brand to answer the demands of clients who were seeking more coworking space, but in a grown-up and professional environment,” the company said in an emailed statement.
Spaces claims to offer concierge-level hospitality services and regularly scheduled networking and learning events. Memberships starts at $199 per month; the facility offers a business lounge and cafe, more than 140 private offices, 40 dedicated desks and three meeting rooms.
The new Regus space will be going up against WeWork, Galvanize, Shift and others.
