The first Baltimore location of Spaces opened this week, bringing a new flexible office offering to South Baltimore.

Located in first building of the Stadium Square development between Cross Street Market and M&T Bank Stadium, the 30,000 sq ft. space is spread over two-and-a-half floors.

We took a tour with community manager Caitlin Howington when the building was under construction in August. Since then, it’s been completely transformed with a common area that Spaces calls a “business club” filled with booths, open tables and a coffee bar. There’s also a coworking area. But glass-front private offices are the most plentiful option, with nearly 90 that range in size. Throughout, there’s a wellness room, complimentary bicycles, plenty of art and the occasional putting green. Members also get roof deck access and the option to use a shower on the first floor. As we’ve reported, the internet is also fast thanks to a fiber access point that was located nearby.

With growth in coworking, each offering looks to stand out. For one, the large size of Spaces stands out. In terms of environment, it seeks to offer a professional setting that provides offices where entrepreneurs and workers can take a meeting or close the door and get stuff done, while also offering the option to access open workspace and common areas.

Area manager Michael Powell said the space is already attracting companies, as well as workers looking to use the dedicated desks. The mix includes marketing and ecommerce firms, but Spaces isn’t limiting its scope to a particular kind of company.

The focus is on flexibility throughout. There are offices that can hold two-dozen people, and others designed to hold just one person or a small team. The offices can be configured however a company wants, and Spaces works to make room for companies as they grow. It’s feasible for a company to take an entire floor if it wanted, Powell said.

“It’s putting people at an advantage of being able to start their company here and grow their company, as well,” he said.

Powell emphasized that the space is “plug and play,” providing all the things required for folks to begin working on arrival.

Spaces is also seeking to build community, and offering event space in the business club.  The space is holding initial community events in the coming weeks, with a Lunch and Learn and other gatherings.

Amsterdam-based Spaces, which is owned by the same parent company as workspace provider Regus, is in the midst of expansion, with a goal of having 200 locations in the US and Europe by the end of 2018. In Baltimore, the Stadium Square location was appealing because of the nearby amenities (including under-renovation Cross Street Market) and access to nearby highways and transit, Powell said. The company plans to open another location inside Inner Harbor’s The Gallery at Harborplace next year.
