Shift Workspaces to spend $30 million on expansion

Shift Workspaces plans to invest more than $30 million to develop 71,332 square feet of co-working space at three locations.

Shift will expand its existing 15,650-square-foot facility in the Alamo Placita neighborhood at 383 Corona St. by 4,332 square feet. Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. It will add a second 22,000-square-foot location in the Golden Triangle at 1001 Bannock St., expected to open in February 2016. 

In Uptown, Shift Grant will break ground in August 2015 and open in March 2016. Formerly Cathedral High School, the 45,000-square-foot space in three buildings will include 130 private offices that can accommodate from one to 28 people; a 10,000-square-foot private courtyard; 2,200 square feet of restaurant/bar and indoor event space; five kitchens; and fitness facilities.

"Traditional office space with white walls, stale air and long, dark hallways is dead," says Grant Barnhill, founder and chief executive of Shift Workspaces. "We want to spend time in bright, collaborative environments that inspire us and promote creativity and a sense of belonging."

All the Shift projects will have solar PV panels, hydroponic gardens and covered bike storage. Prices start at $179 a month for co-working space, $399 a month for a dedicated desk and $599 a month for a private office.
