About seven months after arriving in Kansas City, one of the area’s newest coworking spaces has announced a name change.
Chicago-based Level Office — which opened a studio in downtown Kansas City in February — announced Monday a rebrand to become Novel Coworking.
The revamp more accurately represents the company’s mission to amplify its customers, said Bill Bennett, Novel Coworking founder.
“As a company, we’ve grown from one to 23 locations nationwide, and over time we’ve come to realize that our narrative isn’t just our own — it’s comprised of the thousands of unique stories of our clients,” he said. In fact, the constant flow of innovative clients into our space means our identity is always novel.”
Operating nearly two dozen shared office space locations across the United States, Novel is among the largest owner-operators of shared office space in the nation, according to the company.
It offers members access to more than 1.6 million square feet of workspace in such locales as Boulder, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Nashville, San Diego and others.
Novel’s 44,860-square-foot Kansas City location offers tenants an up-close view of the Jackson County Courthouse, Sprint Center and downtown Kansas City. Built in 1919, the building is the former home of Levy Craig Law Firm and features oversized windows, a red brick exterior, and an attached parking garage.
Membership plans offer a lower price point from some competing coworking spaces, the company said, with dedicated desks at $199 a month and open desks for $99 a month. Private offices range from $399 to $1,349-plus a month, depending on the size of team and space.
