Modworks coworking space opens in Petroleum Building

A new Denver coworking space, Modworks, recently opened in nearly 10,000 square feet  in the Petroleum Building on the 16th Street Mall at Broadway.

Modworks' modular layout can accommodate small and growing companies or groups of people. The offices are designed with removable panels so multiple offices can be combined into one that will allow up to 10 people to work together in one space.

"Modworks really represents an evolution in the concept of shared workspace," says Modworks Co-Founder John Borst. "Our model bridges the gap between traditional executive suites and hipster coworking warehouses. We have a decidedly modern aesthetic for creative and innovative professionals seeking the highest quality, sustainable workspace."

Modworks also has developed ModList, a list of preferred service providers vetted by the company's management team. 

"If a member needs a top-notch web designer, patent attorney, architect or event planner, we have those contacts," says Co-Founder Gabe Henriques. 

Memberships at Modworks start at $195 a month for a "hot desk" and up to $1,200 a month for a private office. All furnishings are included, as well as access to conference and training rooms, lounge areas and private telephone rooms. All copying, printing, energy snacks and drinks also are included at no extra charge. Modworks has arranged discounts for its members and Car2Go and an athletic club.

"We want our members to be productive and allowed to focus on their work," Henriques says. "To help with that we have relationships with a number of vendors that will serve our members' needs, including pick-up and drop-off services for things like dry cleaning, bike repairs and shoe shines. We are very amenity rich with a highly hosted environment for our members."
