The Cordish Companies on Wednesday unveiled plans for a major expansion of its coworking brand, Spark Flex.
Based on the success of Spark Baltimore, which is 100% occupied, Spark Flex will launch this spring in the Pier IV office building in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The Spark Flex expansion of Spark coworking is a continuation of Cordish’s investment in downtown Baltimore and its focus to support innovative workspace solutions for dynamic, growing organizations.
Spark Flex represents a hybrid workspace model that blends collaborative coworking with traditional corporate office space. The space will focus on companies that are further along in their maturity curve than a typical Spark member company, but will offer the same lease flexibility, build-to-suit office space options ranging from 1,500 to 20,000 square feet, hospitality-focused amenities and on-site member services.
Spark Coworking launched its flagship location, Spark Baltimore, at Power Plant Live in 2016. Spark now supports more than 250 companies and 800 members in its communities in Baltimore, St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri.
Since opening in Maryland in 2016, Spark Baltimore recently completed its fifth major expansion. which grew the footprint of its anchor member, Fearless, a digital services firm, from 17,000 to more than 27,000 square feet across multiple floors of the Spark coworking space.
