Dallas co-working firm aligns with major North Texas office building owner
A Dallas-based partner company works with major builders to offer flexible office space.
Common Desk is one of the largest shared office space providers in Texas with multiple locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
The co-working space provider has just signed a contract with developer and investor Granite Properties to provide the landlord’s business tenants with on-demand offices at common desk locations.
With the subscription-based service, Granite customers can use Common Desk offices when needed.
“Our customers tell us they value the office for collaboration, creativity and social interaction, but also value the flexibility that working from home allows,” said Will Hendrickson, senior managing director of Granite Properties, in a statement . “Companies exploring flexible workspaces can host employees who work remotely while promoting culture, collaboration, and creativity.”
Granite Properties owns and manages more than 3.5 million square feet of office buildings in Plano, Addison, Dallas and Southlake.
With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping most office workers at home, shared office companies have revamped their offerings to open up new areas of business.
Common Desk recently partnered with the owner of an office building in Far North Dallas – Triten Real Estate Partners – to provide flexible business space.
Common Desk provides furnished speculative office suites for businesses requiring short term business in the Commons building at 15110 North Dallas Parkway.
The collaborating aerospace company is also located in Granite Properties’ Factory Six03 office building in the West End of downtown Dallas.
“At Common Desk, we see organizations address future office needs by addressing work from home, work near home and corporate headquarters,” said Nick Clark, Founder and CEO of Common Desk, in an explanation. “Companies and employees want flexibility, which, in contrast to short-term rental contracts, usually means optionality.
“Future partnerships between practical owner groups such as Granite Properties and flexible office operators meet this requirement perfectly.”
