DALLAS (Sept. 20, 2021) — Dallas-born flexible office company Common Desk has expanded its local reach to Greenville Ave, opening its newest coworking location at the newly-renovated Energy Square. Energy Square has been home to many Dallas businesses since the 1950s, and as of September 20, 2021, Common Desk has joined the ranks of companies who have settled into the central Dallas office destination. Common Desk – Energy Square features flexible office space, experiential coworking memberships and Common Desk’s trademark southern hospitality for Dallas-based small businesses, entrepreneurs and nearby students to call home.
The campus contains five large, highly amenitized buildings conveniently located off North Central Expressway and University Drive. Energy Square is situated near Dallas’ bustling business hubs, Southern Methodist University and many of the city’s most sought-after residential areas, making it an ideal location for all ages and lifestyles. Easily accessible from neighborhoods including Park Cities, Lakewood, Lake Highlands and Preston Hollow, Common Desk – Energy Square, located in Building 2 of the campus, will meet the flexible office needs of both Dallas residents seeking a prominent business address close to home and university students looking for a more conducive study and collaboration environment. With the Lovers Lane DART Rail Station a stone’s throw away, workers living further from the city center can simplify their commute with seamless access to this new office solution.
Common Desk’s open network of flexible office spaces began in Deep Ellum in 2012 and has grown to 20 locations and counting in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Wilmington and coming-soon Raleigh. Common Desk – Energy Square offers 25,000 square feet across two floors, featuring 11 conference rooms, 62 offices, 3 midsize suites and ample socially distanced coworking space. Campus-wide amenities added in the recent redevelopment of Energy Square include a landscaped courtyard, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a rooftop deck and an outdoor entertainment and event area with WiFi access. The location boasts multiple onsite dining options as well as proximity to some of Dallas’ best restaurants, bars and retail destinations.
Because of its accessibility and future-forward vision, opening a location in Energy Square has been a longtime goal for Common Desk, and it first began pursuing opportunities with the prominent business campus in 2017. Common Desk’s location at Energy Square marks the second partnership between Common Desk and USAA Real Estate, adding to the first in Houston at 2500 Citywest, with the potential for a third on the horizon. It will be Common Desk’s first partnership with Glenstar.
“We are excited to welcome Common Desk to our roster of tenants at Energy Square. Not only is Common Desk a best-in-class operator, but their approach to creating vibrant and engaging spaces is in line with Glenstar’s vision. This will benefit our existing tenants, the surrounding community and create an additional option for people that want to be at Energy Square,” said Matt Omundson, Principal at Glenstar.
