Co-working company WeWork is expanding its footprint in Dallas, with office space in Victory Park that'll provide room for hundreds of workers.

The location is at 3090 Olive St., commonly referred to as the Victory Plaza Office building, and will consist of two full floors within the Victory Park campus.

Co-founded by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey in New York City in 2010, WeWork provides more than 280,000 members around the world with space, community, and services through both physical and virtual offerings.

WeWork Texas general manager Nathan Lenahan says in a release that the company is thrilled to meet the needs of Dallas' bustling community. They're always thrilled, aren't they. "The combination of legacy companies and the newer wave of startups make Victory Park the perfect location for us," he says.

The location will open in early 2019 to accommodate entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, artists, small businesses, and even divisions of large corporations. Members not only have access to their home building, but they can work from any of the 290+ locations around the world and connect to the 280,000+ global members network.

The addition of WeWork is a part of a district redevelopment led by retail partner Trademark Property Co. and owner UST XVI Victory Park, a German real estate investment fund managed by Estein USA.

South Victory Park is undergoing a full remerchandising, adding 85,000 square feet of new retail space, more than 10 food and beverage concepts, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas-Victory Park, and new public art.

WeWork will be located on the second and third floors of the west Victory Plaza Office building. The space will feature mid-century modern decor, an open floor plan, floor-to-ceiling glass and steel framing, private office suites, and communal working space.

There'll be hardwood floors throughout, with polished concrete in the main entrance and lobby. The space will offer a variety of tableaus, including:

  • comfortable nooks
  • conference rooms
  • quiet phone booths
  • community bar
  • pantries
  • complimentary fruit, water, and coffee
