KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A New York-based flexible workspace provider made its Kansas City debut in December on the Country Club Plaza, offering a mix of coworking and private office space.
Kansas City was attractive to Industrious for several reasons, including being a “dominant market in Silicon Prairie” and a fast-growing tech hub, Midwest Area Manager Ryan Ledoda told the Kansas City Business Journal. Industrious attracts companies from a variety of industries at its facilities, but one of the more popular ones has been technology, he said. As for the Plaza, it’s an area where people live, work and play, and it attracts ample foot traffic.
Industrious Country Club Plaza, 420 Nichols Road, spans about 37,000 square feet and draws inspiration from the Plaza’s Spanish architecture. Some Spanish influences inside the space include accent walls with patterns and tile work that reflect the Plaza. Industrious also partnered with local vendors, including Messenger Coffee Co. and McLain’s Bakery.
