Chicago-based flexible office provider Workbox will open a coworking space in downtown Salt Lake City. The firm will occupy the space at the historic Orpheum Theatre, taking over the location formerly managed by CommonGrounds Workplace. The expansion marks the company’s sixth venue and its first outside the Midwest.

The three-story location spans 19,972 square feet and encompasses 50 office spaces, with private offices featuring between one and nine desks. Amenities include private conference rooms, a shared kitchen with coffee bar, phone booths, a wellness room and color printing. Additional building facilities comprise showers, ski lockers and a complimentary shuttle to the mountain area nearby.

Built in 1905, the Orpheum Theatre is located at 132 S. State St., in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. The building is close to Highway 89 and Interstate 15 and is within walking distance of multiple light rail stations.

Workbox CEO & Co-Founder John Wallace stated in prepared remarks that Salt Lake City’s booming startup industry and culture has attracted the flex office provider towards the area and out of its home region.

Over the next year, demand for coworking space is expected to rise significantly, as occupancy rates inch up to reach pre-pandemic figures, JLL Head of Flex and Experience Management Jacob Bates told Commercial Property Executive in a recent interview.
