FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 11, 2022 – Pacific Workplaces, the San Francisco-based flexible office provider, announced today that it closed a deal to lease the 6th floor of the most prominent class A building in downtown Las Vegas at 300 4th Street. The 16,636 square feet space will feature 58 private offices and team rooms, 50 dedicated desks and coworking workstations, state-of-the art meeting rooms, gig internet connectivity, virtual offices, wellness room, podcast room, unique Workplace Studio design, and fun and enlightening events that will be a magnet for the Vegas business community. It is located within a couple of blocks from the City Justice Court, the Federal Courthouse, City Hall, close to the Zappos HQ, and a few blocks away from the 18B Arts district and its myriad of food and micro-brewery options.
Pacific Workplaces (PAC) has been looking for space in the downtown area for some time. “When we heard that Barker Pacific was buying the tower at 300 4th Street, opening a coworking space in that landmark building became a priority,” said the company COO, Scott Chambers. He added: “We are very familiar with Barker Pacific, having partnered with them in other projects. They are a top-quality landlord. We share their vision and the city’s goal of a vibrant and expanding business community downtown, which we want to help foster at the PAC location and beyond.”
Mark Handin, Partner at Barker Pacific Group, explained: “We initially approached Pacific Workplaces because we knew them as the quality flexible office operator we wanted to bring to our project. We are thrilled we were successful to partner with them at 300 4th Street.”
Laurent Dhollande, CEO of Pacific Workplaces added: “Many California companies are moving to the Vegas area, so initially our goal was to be there to support them. But in the process, we were delighted to discover a local business community whose vitality rivals anything we’ve seen. We want to be a big part of it.” The company’s original base was in Silicon Valley before it expanded to 18 locations, including Reno, NV. This will be the second location for Pacific Workplaces in Nevada.
Discussions with Elizabeth Lopez with the City Economic and Urban Development Department were also an important consideration in Pacific Workplaces’ decision. “The energy spent by the city’s economic development folks and by the groups of entrepreneurs they help organize was contagious, which validated our choice,” said Dhollande. “I have rarely seen city representatives as energetic, creative, and resourceful – in one word: entrepreneurial – as we have experienced here. We are looking forward to becoming an active part of the Vegas start-up ecosystem and building a great partnership with the city as well.”
Construction is projected to be completed by April 2022 and people interested can lock-in pre-opening deals by registering their interest on the Pacific Workplaces website.
