After 6 months of relationship-building through coffeeshop meetups, the first official Common Desk opened in a 3500 square foot industrial building in Deep Ellum, Dallas. Twenty-five members laid the foundation for Common Desk to slowly grow and expand as a tightly-knit community. By 2014, Common Desk had grown to over 10,000 square feet of space with over 250 members. In 2015, the second location opened in an equally badass area of Dallas – Oak Cliff. Common Desk continues to grow by being passionate about providing community oriented workspaces in alternative neighborhoods for the mobile workforce.
