Coworking Spaces Seeking to Foster Entrepreneurship Continue to Sprout up Across Dallas

By | News | No Comments

Residents of the Elmwood neighborhood of south Oak Cliff had at one time seen the historic and abandoned former Dixie Wax Paper building with dismay, but local developer Monte Anderson saw only opportunity. The 127,000-square-foot manufacturing plant had been left in a state of disrepair for years, but is now home to Tyler Station, a “coworking village” that is one of the largest spaces of its kind in Dallas.

“This is designed to be a collaboration of small businesses,” Anderson told the Observer. “We want people to see what other people are doing. Small entrepreneurs, they need tools and they need resources that they can’t afford to have on their own. What we’ve created is a space for natural integration to happen.”

Staff says the huge building is being transformed into a multi-level co-working village for a variety of entrepreneurs.

Gary Buckner is owner of Stash Design, and a partner with Tyler Station.”
