A Richmond-based coworking space operator is planning its third office in Hampton Roads.
Gather Workspaces LLC, the fast-growing Richmond-based company that designs, builds and operates collaborative workspaces, signed a lease in the Town Center building in Virginia Beach.
The company will occupy the entire third floor of the mixed-use building, taking 28,547 square feet of space.
A $4 million renovation of the third floor space will begin in early 2020 and should be ready in June.The new location will mark the company’s seventh coworking space in its nearly six-year history – four in the Richmond region and three in Hampton Roads.
In Hampton Roads, the company has coworking spaces in downtown Norfolk and in Newport News.
In the Richmond region, Gather currently operates locations at 313 E. Broad St. in downtown Richmond; at 2920 W. Broad St. in the Scott’s Addition; and in the West Broad Village in western Henrico County.
Coworking spaces like the ones that Gather operates appeal to self-employed people who work from home, to businesses that need a single office and not a long-term commitment, and to out-of-town companies seeking a local presence.
