Launched in 2015, Plexpod Westport Commons recently opened its doors after completing phase one of the project to revamp a middle school to become a coworking campus.
Opened in April, the 160,000 square-foot, formerly vacant Westport Middle School has new life as a huge coworking space that will house more than 500 people and dozens of businesses. Read more about the project here.
Plexpod founder Gerald Smith and the Sustainable Development Partners of Kansas City are still in the process of rebuilding parts of the historic building, which will become the largest coworking facility in the world. It will feature more than 50 open “team spaces,” 40 offices and 200 flexible desks for rent. The gigantic project also will boast a huge auditorium, an event space, a maker’s studio, coffee shop and several meeting spaces.
