California coworking firm opens new flexible workplace space in Downtown Fort Worth

702 Houston Street CommonGrounds Downtown Fort Worth Workplace

A California-based coworking company has opened for business with its first Texas location at Fort Worth’s Central Business District.

CommonGrounds Workplace leased 25,621 square-foot of space below XTO’s multi-story parking garage at 702 Houston Street.

The location will serve more than 360 members. The company hosted a grand opening at the new facility last week.

The Fort Worth location is the fifth CommonGrounds Workplace location to open in 2019, as part of the company’s $140 million Series A funding expansion program.

The workplace offers spacious, private offices, team rooms and coworking spaces, including four video-enabled conference rooms and several additional casual meeting areas. Bike racks and showers are also available.

“Fort Worth has a relatively low number of coworking companies and ranks as one of the fastest-growing cities in the country,” CommonGrounds CEO Jacob Bates said in a statement. “CommonGrounds Workplace is a welcome addition to the local business community and provides a higher-quality, enterprise-grade, flexible workplace solution for the City’s rapidly growing and expanding corporate workforce.” 

Stream Realty Partners worked with CommonGrounds to lease the space.

The local architect of record was Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford. North Texas-based Pacific Builders spearheaded the construction.
