Dallas Fort Work is Moving Downtown!

Dallas Fort Work, a coworking community in North Dallas, will be joining in the downtown fun come this November.

“The pioneers of Downtown’s revitalization at 211 N. Ervay continue to expand their innovative concept at Alto 211 with the addition of Fort Work as their latest tenant,” stated today’s announcement from Dallas Fort Work (DFW).

DFW will be setting up shop at 211 N. Ervay, joining the Tech Wildcatters and Health Wildcatters incubator programs already housed there.

“We’re thrilled to have DFW as part of our Alto 211 family. DFW fits perfectly within the diverse, forward thinking, creative and entrepreneurial culture of Alto 211,” said Mike Sarimsakci, founder and managing partner of Alto West.

Part of the unique environment that Alto 211 is fostering is an art installation showcasing 10 of Dallas’ top artists under 30.

“Driven by the belief that art education, enrichment, and exposure are keys to building a better and brighter community for all, Alto 211 will be displaying work that showcases Dallas’ emerging artists,” states today’s press release.

Oren Salomon, founder of Dallas Fort Work, expressed excitement over DFW’s new digs and the collaboration of technology and art in their new space, which is set to open its doors in November.

“Having a variety of voices in the conversation only makes it richer,” said Salomon. “This is a great opportunity for Dallas’ tech and art communities to build the scaffolding for larger discussions and more solutions for our city.”

In addition to the space for art at DFW, there will be 5,000 square feet available for all kinds of events, workshops, and meetups.

If you’re hankering for a place to set up your laptop, DFW features 10 private offices and 96 coworking desks. Full-time memberships with 24/7 access start at $99.

You can read the full press release and find more information on memberships and the art installation by visiting Dallas Fort Work’s site.

Happy trails to you, Dallas Fort Work! We’re excited to see you grow.
