With expansion plans rapidly moving forward, Pipeline Workspaces, a national shared workspace concept catering to a diverse community of entrepreneurs, start-ups, corporate teams and international business executives, is opening in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Pipeline has entered into a 20-year lease for an entire floor – 12,000 square feet – at One Financial Plaza at 100 SE Third Ave., marking its entrance into the Broward market and further connecting the membership in its South Florida spaces. Located in the heart of the city’s Central Business District, the 28-story office tower is just one block off of Las Olas Boulevard and south of Broward Boulevard.
Pipeline Lauderdale will become the company’s fourth location in South Florida, following the recent opening of Pipeline in the City of Doral’s business district, as well as existing locations in Miami’s Brickell Financial District and Coral Gables’ Central Business District.
Pipeline Workspaces offers a community of hard-working people whose needs include open shared office spaces, conference rooms and phone booths, dedicated desks and private offices that utilize functional and inspirational design to foster productivity and collaboration.
Anchored by Regions Bank and home to the popular dining spot Tower Club, Pipeline Workspaces will join a tenant roster at One Financial Plaza that includes Regions Bank, AXA Advisors and law firm Fowler White Burnett.
“Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s strong legal and high-tech community, along with its growing international business and population base, make it a strategic location for our model as we expand into new communities in South Florida and beyond,” said Mr. Oretsky. “As we’ve done in other communities, Pipeline is intentionally creating a business and social network that makes it possible for lawyers and multi-national companies to work alongside individuals building businesses.”
The Greater Fort Lauderdale area has emerged as a growing hub for corporations and international businesses, with nearly 200 companies having corporate, division or regional headquarters. The region posted the second-largest year-over-year employment increase among all 32 metropolitan divisions in the U.S., according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Today, Greater Fort Lauderdale is the heart of the “TechGateway,” with global technology and software firms such as Motorola, BlackBerry, Citrix, and Ultimate Software having an office presence that has attracted a deep and diverse talent pool of technology professionals.
“Fort Lauderdale is experiencing strong job and economic growth and new residential and hotel projects are underway, making it a natural place for us to expand our high-quality shared office space brand and serve South Florida’s growing entrepreneurial community,” said Mr. Houdard. “The opening of our first Broward location will allow us to further connect our membership base, which will now have access to multiple networks at our Brickell, Coral Gables, Doral and Fort Lauderdale workspaces.”
In the office lease transaction, Shay Pope of CBRE represented Pipeline Workspaces and Jon Blunk, Laurel Oswald and Cristina Glaria of Cushman & Wakefield advised the property owner, Crocker Partners.
