Coworking office space is invading Doral—the third-fastest growing city in the United States—at a time when the city is seeing an economic and residential boom. Pipeline Workspaces just opened its new shared office space concept there.
Pipeline’s collaborative workspaces target entrepreneurs, start-ups, professionals and international business executives. The company opened its third location in Coral Gables just months ago. Pipeline Doral is its fourth in South Florida.
“Doral’s growth and international population fit well within Pipeline’s model,” says Pipeline cofounder Todd Oretsky. “A Pipeline member in Doral will have access to the business community in Coral Gables and Brickell and meet people who they otherwise would not come across. The shared workspace model allows us to build architecturally significant spaces in the most expensive areas, while keeping costs to our members low enough, so startups and young creatives can work alongside more experienced executives and professionals.”
Pipeline Doral is steps away from CityPlace Doral, a mixed-use development that will house more than 30 shops and restaurants, including Fresh Market, Ciné Bistro theater and Kings bowling alley, as well as hundreds of residences. The shared office concept occupies about 14,000 square feet inside the Doral Concourse office building at 8400 Northwest 36th St. Located in the heart of the Doral Business District. The office tower’s tenants currently include international law firm Greenberg Traurig, Starboard Cruise Services and Marriott, among others.
“Doral is an ideal location for our Pipeline brand because it is an entrepreneurial business community that is also home to multinational corporations and has a highly-educated and culturally diverse residential community that is growing at a steady pace,” says Pipeline cofounder Philippe Houdard. “At Pipeline Doral, our goal is to create an office and social network that brings people together to learn from each other in ways that traditional office settings don’t allow and develop meaningful business connections.”
Pipeline Doral offers shared office spaces, a selection of private offices, common areas such as a café and living room, phone booths, and small and large conference rooms. Fresh Seasons, an importer and distributor of produce, Rivera Law, a provider of customized corporate law services, national staffing services and employment agency PrideStaff, and international architect Justo Vera-Ayesterán are among the shared office provider’s Doral tenants.
“Downtown Doral has transplanted the amenities of city life into the suburb,” Ana Codina-Barlick, CEO of Downtown Doral, tells GlobeSt.com. “The 120-acre, mixed use development appeals to baby boomers and Millennials seeking an urban experience with its walkable offices, shops and restaurants, while also satisfying the desire for a residential neighborhood with townhome, apartment and condominium options. Downtown Doral also takes the ‘live, work, play’ mantra one step further by including a dual language charter elementary school in the master-planned development, making Downtown Doral a ‘live, work, play, learn’ community.”
