In keeping with its mission of serving and connecting modern businesses in an environment where they can focus on growth, The Department Coworking, located at 1 N. First Street in downtown Phoenix, is adding another floor with 40 new offices and coworking space in order to meet the needs of growing companies in the Phoenix area. The expansion is set to open by August 26, 2019.

“It’s been amazing to see the business community here in the Phoenix area multiply since our team joined The Department in 2015,” said John Herbold, CEO of Brushfire Interactive. “More and more companies like ours are looking at nontraditional space to establish their teams, and the new offices here at The Department are a perfect fit. It also doesn’t hurt that they offer the best prices in downtown Phoenix.”

The new seventh floor private offices, team spaces, and coworking area will showcase the same mid-century modern aesthetic of the existing coworking space on the sixth floor. A large staircase connecting the two floors

gives all Department Coworking members access to 28,000 square feet of coworking space including:

• Charging tables and soft seating

• Skyrise balconies

• 10 technology-enhanced conference rooms

• 6 phone booths

• Nursing mothers room

• Onsite hospitality team

• Endless coffee and La Croix

• Open kitchen with a networking bar

“Our goal is to help businesses grow, and this project really ties it all together,” said Kyle Frazey, Managing Director at The Department. “Because we offer a range of options for teams of 1 to 100, business leaders and entrepreneurs can focus on growing their business, team, and culture without having to worry about relocating. ”

The Department Coworking opened in 2015 on the 6th floor of the historic mid-rise building downtown. The building was recently renamed The Department. What was originally Korricks Department Store, opened in 1914, is now home to dozens of businesses including companies like Virtuous Software, in large, private suites, 1-4 person offices for entrepreneurs and consultants, team spaces for digital agencies like Brushfire, retail storefronts like Cartel Coffee Lab, and single desks in the open coworking space.
