Northland startups and business owners need more collaborative workplaces to call their own, Bob Martin said less than a year ago. This week, iWerx Gladstone turns that vision into reality.
“More than just a place to work, iWerx Gladstone is a business development center committed to making connections and stimulating personal and professional growth,” said iWerx partner Martin, describing the new space on iWerx’s website. “We believe in intentional networking and a colliding of like-minded, forward-thinking business people.”
The two-story, 32,000-square-foot Gladstone space — originally built as a racquetball club and renovated into a traditional office building in the mid 1980s — welcomed grand opening revelers Thursday evening. The 7001 N. Locust Dr. location is the first dedicated coworking space and business incubator in Gladstone, Martin said.
iWerx Gladstone features include:
- A quadrant of retail opportunities with outward-facing doors for public access
- 8 conference rooms, kitchenettes, and communities lounges
- Access to entrepreneurial training and community programming
- 1 gig of ISP connectivity in every office, included
- Up to 10 gigabit connectivity on demand
- Onsite IT support

The iWerx property development and ownership is guided by Stor-Safe corporation with management, business systems and business growth support by EnCorps45, an organization that promotes multi-generational economies, according to iWerx.
The original, 33,000-square-foot iWerx space opened in November 2016 in North Kansas City.
