Thrive Workplace, a Denver-based co-working community, the launching a third location, Thrive West Arvada at 5610 Ward Road this month.
“Every day we get requests from members, asking us to bring our innovative co-working concept closer to where they live,” said Chad Johnson, Thrive’s co-founder. “As co-working evolves, we continue striving to meet the demands of our community, providing the very best tools, resources and amenities needed to succeed. Today, an important piece of that puzzle is location, and now you don’t have to live downtown to benefit from the convenience of a co-working space.”
Johnson and his brother, Charlie, opened the first Thrive space — 3,000 square feet in Downtown Denver in 2010. Three years later that turned into 9,000 square feet in Cherry Creek. In 2015, Thrive opened another space in the Ballpark neighborhood. Now, the brothers are bringing their concept of high-end co-working to the suburbs of Arvada.
“When the co-working movement started it was focused on density, the growth of Denver pushing a lot of people to the suburban markets,” Johnson said. “We see a trend of the Denver traffic moving there.”
The opening of the Arvada space allows Reed Ruck, Arvada resident, to move his business, Nexmetro Communities from Thrive Ballpark to Thrive Arvada.
Nexmetro Communities is a multi-family and single family developer of for-rent properties with corporate headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona. Ruck manages its Denver metro branch. He found that for his employees, renting two private offices and paying for drop-in spaces provides the best environment for his employees as well as being cost effective.
“The reason I like it is it allows for employees to commute to an upgraded office environment without having to commit to a three to five year lease,” Ruck explained. “It works well for entrepreneurial companies and allows you to bring in additional employees to expand and grow.”
Ruck said he had been searching for a space like this outside of Denver, but had trouble finding it. The move to Thrive Arvada will also allow his employees to reverse commute, cutting their drive time in half.
Freelancers and start up business often utilize the co-working spaces the most.
“We are thrilled that Thrive Workspace has chosen Arvada as their new home,” said Kami Welch, president of the Arvada Chamber. “This will be an incredible opportunity for home-based and small businesses to engage in the Arvada business community in a new and meaningful way.”
Thrive West Arvada offers 21,000 square feet of adaptable work spaces in an underserved suburban market. Some amenities include a 1,400-square-foot training room equipped with whiteboard walls, a projector and designed to accommodate a variety of events; three adaptable conference rooms of varying sizes; 57 offices strategically placed throughout the venue to spark collaboration and innovation; and dedicated desk space and mobile/drop-in desk space. There is also a rooftop deck, private phone booths and free parking spaces.
“Our partnership with 56th & Ward Road LLLP not only allows us to set ourselves up for building ownership down the line, it also means we can begin to look at expanding to other underserved markets in the suburban areas,” said Charlie Johnson, Thrive’s other co-founder.
Leasing on spaces is open has begun and tours are available by appointment. Membership packages start at $600 per month. For more information on memberships, visit thriveworkplace.com/memberships/.
