A Chicago-based coworking company announced it’s opening an office in Kansas City.
Level Office, which already has 15 locations in the nation, will be located on the 9th floor of 1301 Oak St. The 44,860-square-foot building will offer private offices as well as a communal lounge area. Amenities include on-site administrative support, Google Fiber, beer on tap and an espresso bar.
“Small business growth in Kansas City is accelerating,” said Level Office founder Bill Bennett. “We at Level Office are thrilled to offer local business owners and entrepreneurs professional, flexible, and budget-friendly workspace, all within a beautiful building.”
With offices in Indianapolis, Phoenix and Seattle — Bennett said Kansas City was a natural next step for Level Office.
“We are impressed by Kansas City’s supportive environment for small businesses,” Bennett said. “The city’s strong economic growth and diverse, creative community make it an ideal place for Level Office members to work.”
Pricing starts at $199 a month for coworking memberships and $399 for private offices. Pre-leasing for the space is already underway.
This adds to the coworking surge that is already underway in Kansas City. The world’s largest coworking space Plexpod Westport Commons opened this month, and international coworking firm WeWork announced it will open its doors in the Crossroads this summer. In two years, Kansas City will expect to add over 300,000 square feet of coworking.
