A new co-working space is headed to downtown Arlington.
Luke and Lauren Brewer have leased 3,509 square feet of modern industrial flex space at 500 E. Front St. in Urban Union for their new company, Union Worx. The co-working space will be ready to occupy in first quarter 2018.
Christopher Mendez, vice president of Coldwell Banker Commercial Advisors DFW, represented the Brewers. The long-term lease was inked through direct talks with Ryan Dodson of the Dodson Cos., developer of Urban Union.
“Co-working is the buzzword of the year. It’s the trend for small business space,” Mendez says.
Union Worx will feature 13 private offices plus open work stations, a kitchen and conference or collaborative space. Rates for hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and long-term occupancy will be available.
Union Worx will be located in an end cap of Urban Union, located along Front and Mesquite streets near Arlington City Hall. The first phase opened roughly four months ago. Dodson’s development at build-out will total about 100,000 square feet, a 6.5-acre mix of re-purposed warehouses and new construction for office, restaurant and entertainment uses.
“Dodson had a vision to revitalize this area. He’s creating modern industrial space that is a good match for innovative businesses like Union Worx,” Mendez said.
