CommonGrounds Workplace Has Opened in Philadelphia’s Center City

CommonGrounds Workplace has expanded their East Coast footprint with a new 62,461 square-foot office located at 1700 Market.

“As a former resident of Philadelphia, it is an honor to open our location at 1700 Market,” said Jacob Bates, Chief Executive Officer for CommonGrounds Workplace. “The Center City location is fantastic. Our premium enterprise-grade workplace is a great compliment to the diverse and evolving business community providing a complemental alternative to a modern high-quality corporate headquarters.”

1700 Market is a 32-story newly renovated building in of heart of Philadelphia. The building includes a roof deck, fitness center, pharmacy, two restaurants, day care, hair salon, bank, and parking. It is only two blocks from Suburban Station, and a three-block walk to Rittenhouse Square and City Hall. There are restaurants, shopping, and entertainment nearby.

CG’s lease includes the entire twenty-third and twenty-fourth floors. The office renovation, overseen by their in-house design division, is nearing completion and it is ready for member occupancy.

Offering well over 100 square-feet per person with everyday amenities, CG has taken extreme safety measures and precautions, including additional cleaning services, to ensure they provide the safest environment for their members.

“With our bullishness on Philly’s vibrant business community, we are excited to incorporate our Space-as-a-Service product in the market,” said Bates. “We have found that people and businesses need various typologies of spaces to be productive and reduce friction in their workday. CG has designed multiple spaces to accomplish this by including video-ready conference rooms, phone booths, think rooms, well-being rooms, and additional event areas.”

CommonGrounds’ regional headquarters is in Philadelphia. There are currently eight employees who support headquarters, in San Diego, as well as their growth on the East Coast.
