Nationally Expanding Co-Working Franchise Plans to Open Several Locations in the Tampa Market
TAMPA, FL, February 28, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield has negotiated a 7,721-square-foot office lease in Tampa’s Westshore submarket for Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering private office space, co-working space, virtual offices and business services. The company has plans to open two more locations in the Tampa market in the coming months.
In addition to Tampa, Office Evolution has several locations planned for the Jacksonville market, the first of which is expected to open this spring.
Senior Director John Fish and Managing Principal Scott Garlick, with Cushman & Wakefield’s Tampa-based Tenant Advisory Group, represented Office Evolution in the lease. The landlords are St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co.
Located in the Lincoln Center building, at 5401 W. Kennedy Blvd., Office Evolution’s first Tampa location offers a variety of work space styles, including 32 private office spaces, a number of dedicated desks and a large co-working area. The space has two conference rooms, the largest of which can comfortably accommodate eight people.
In addition to work space, Office Evolution provides phone answering services, private mailboxes and other business solutions. Clients also have access to several amenities, including a business lounge, kitchen, complimentary tea and coffee, a Business Center Manager, 24-hour accessibility and plug-n-play capabilities. Rental options include hourly, daily, month-to-month and long-term plans.
Lincoln Center is a 10-story, 217,695-square-foot office building situated in the heart of Tampa’s largest office submarket, the Westshore Business District. The location provides immediate access to Interstate 275 and the Veterans Expressway. It is five minutes from Tampa International Airport and is convenient to Tampa’s two major shopping malls.
“Our new facility in the Westshore Business District will put our clients at the center of Tampa’s business community, with the workspace and business solutions they need to succeed,” said Office Evolution franchise owner John Przedpelski. “Another benefit for our Tampa members is that once we complete the other two centers, our members will have access to all three Tampa locations, as well as all other Office Evolution locations throughout the U.S. when traveling.”
“Office Evolution will be able to reach an untapped market of office users in Tampa Bay by offering greater flexibility and a broader range of services than other co-working options already in the area,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Fish.
Katy Alderman of Redstone Commercial, the property management company for Lincoln Center, added:
“We are delighted to have the first Tampa area Office Evolution as a tenant in the Lincoln Center, which will be a great location for Office Evolution members. Members will enjoy a beautiful location on Old Tampa Bay, an onsite lounge and mini-market, as well as easy access to major freeways, the airport and nearby restaurants, retail shopping and hotels.”
