When the Two Light tower opens in downtown Kansas City this spring, it will include a two-level coworking space for entrepreneurs.
The coworking space, called Spark KC, will occupy 15,000 square feet, the Kansas City Power & Light District announced. Spark KC’s offering will include live/work packages with apartments featuring special technology. The release calls it the first coliving opportunity for “the Kansas City startup ecosystem.”
The Cordish Cos., the developer of the apartment high-rise, started a similar program at its property in Baltimore in 2016. It doubled in size last year to 40,000 square feet.
Spark Baltimore offers 50 coworking desks, 28 offices and three private suites. It has grown to 110 companies in its first two years, the release states.
“Our vision for Spark is to provide local entrepreneurs an affordable, appealing, flexible way to locate and grow their businesses,” Shervonne Cherry, Spark’s director of community and partnerships, said in the release.
