WeWork, an international company which provides shared workspace, community and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups and small businesses, is expanding in Kansas City, Missouri. WeWork plans to occupy a new 40,000 sq. ft. retail space in Kansas City’s Corrigan Station.
“WeWork is a platform for creators that provides the space, services and community that help people make a life, not just a living,” says Adam Wacenske, general manager of WeWork’s southern region. “Through WeWork, the people of Kansas City can have the opportunity to work and connect with a global community of more than 90,000 members, both in person at our beautiful workspaces and virtually through our member app.”
Launched in 2010 with a mission to empower entrepreneurs, WeWork executives say they chose to expand in Kansas City for the metro’s cultural renaissance in the last five years and its enduring values of hospitality.
“Kansas City is fast becoming one of the most popular cities in the Midwest,” WeWork officials said. “It’s one of those rare places where you can get the hustle-and-bustle of a metropolitan sprawl without sacrificing the neighborliness of the heartland.”
