Plexpod Co-working Studio
Plexpod, a Kansas City-based coworking enterprise, is opening its fourth area location. Its new space, at Commerce Tower in downtown Kansas City, will occupy the fourth, fifth and sixth floors and will complement the tower’s rich amenity mix. Commerce Tower — once a traditional corporate office tower — has undergone a renaissance to reposition the asset as a vertical urban neighborhood in which to live, work and play. Other tenants include an early childhood learning center, an indoor dog park, Park University, a pharmacy, a fitness center, and more than 340 apartments.
The new coworking space presents a modern, flexible and high-tech work environment for entrepreneurs working independently, but seeking to create connections with like-minded businesses from various industries. These shared values are emphasized through an open stair connecting the three floors, and a large common area for meetings and events. The space is expected to open in 2018.
