A new co-working space inside the tallest office building in Pinellas County is now open for business.
Industrious and Third Lake Partners LLC, a Tampa investment advisory firm, announced the opening of Industrious 200 Central Avenue, a nearly 37,000-square-foot co-working space.
The space occupies the third, fourth and fifth floors inside the 26-story office tower in downtown St. Pete.
The space, dubbed Industrious 200 Central Avenue, is Industrious’ fourth Tampa Bay location. The other hubs are in Ybor City, Sparkman Wharf and downtown Tampa.
“Not only does Industrious provide the region with the highest quality of product and service available in the industry, but we are pleased to offer short term space solutions to office tenants looking for space in downtown St. Petersburg, where current vacancy is under 5% and high demand exceeds supply for professional office space with flexible terms and layouts,” Ken Jones, CEO of Third Lake Capital, said in a release.
Last year, the St. Pete Catalyst reported that Industrious and its partners selected 200 Central and it was set to open in the second quarter of 2021, with sales for the space beginning in January.
The third and fourth floors of the Industrious space are connected by an internal staircase.
Altogether, the floors offer 115 private offices and suites, multiple conference rooms and phone booths.
There’s also a café, a library space and lounge areas designed to encourage collaboration and socializing.
Wendy Giffin of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord, Fourteen RE Priatek LLC, in the negotiations of the transaction.
St. Petersburg is home to other shared workspaces including Station House, the Tampa Bay Innovation Center, Rising Tide Innovation Center and Thrive DTSP.
