As the popularity of coworking spaces grows around the country, New York-based group Industrious is planning a new location in one of Philly’s most iconic buildings.
The new 55,000-square-foot coworking space will take up two floors in Two Liberty Place on South 16th Street, according to an announcement from Industrious Tuesday. The group, which already has one location on Broad, markets itself as the, “largest premium flexible workspace provider,” in the country, with 80 locations nationwide. This one in particular is pretty significant for Philly: Two Liberty Place is the fourth tallest building in the city, and one of the most recognizable parts of the city’s skyline.
Industrious plans to open the offices in the beginning of 2020, with shared workspaces, private offices, and large team suites, according to a statement from the group. When they move in, Two Liberty Place, which is owned by Coretrust Capital Partners, will be 90 percent occupied.
The news was first reported by Philly.com, who wrote that the Two Liberty coworking space will be the third largest coworking office in the city, following MakeOffices at 1600 Market, and WeWork at 1900 Market, respectively.
Industrious did not immediately have renderings of the future space to share Tuesday, but images of other Industrious locations can provide an idea of what the space may look like.
