IWG plc, the global leader in creative, flexible workspaces, announced today that they will be opening Spaces, an open and shared office concept, in the historic former Women’s City Club building in downtown Detroit. “As we continue to expand the Spaces portfolio, we see Detroit as a strong market for coworking,” said Michael Berretta, VP of Network Development for IWG, which owns Spaces. “Our modern coworking model will help local small business owners and entreprenuears innovate and create in a dynamic and unique work environment. We’re excited about Detroit and there is no question that our brand is a perfect fit for the community.”
Restoration of the historic Women’s City Club Building by Olympia Development, which will house the Spaces concept, will bring hundreds of new construction, office and retail jobs to The District Detroit. The revitalized building will ultimately be transformed into approximately 47,000 square feet of office space and 10,000 square feet of distinctive street-level retail. Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group is the leading architect for the $25 million restoration, while Detroit-based joint venture Brinker-Christman will serve as the project’s construction manager.
“Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of our economy,” said Keith Bradford, Senior Vice President of Olympia Development. “Offering a shared-office space concept in The District Detroit tailored to local business owners will help further drive the progress we are seeing throughout our city.”
