Have a look inside Kismet’s largest coworking spot to date

At 13,000 square feet, the new Manayunk spot is larger than its first two locations combined.

Homegrown coworking brand Kismet will today open up the doors to its third location, a 13,000-square-foot hub in Manayunk, inside what used to be a local Pottery Barn.

The renovated two-story location at 4230 Main S. features 17 private offices, 46 designated desks and 72 additional workspaces; in addition to multipurpose event spaces, lounge areas, conference rooms, two kitchens and an “entertainment bunker.”

“Kismet is excited to be joining a successful commercial district which is home to hundreds of independent and community-minded businesses and organizations,” the company said in an emailed statement.

In the spring of 2017, real estate agent Christopher Plant opened up the company’s first spot in Chestnut Hill, a 6,000-square-foot hub with an initial group of 11 members. Back then he described Kismet as a way to offer a “more intimate coworking model on the fringes of traditional business districts and quasi-suburban commercial districts.”

By the following year, Kismet’s second location — an equally sized hub — went live in Callowhill.

The company will host a grand opening party tonight (Friday) from 5 to 9 p.m at the new space, which has been in the works since the spring of 2018.
