The Foundry at Mockingbird Station Apparently Locking Out All Tenants

Share News:

We got a tip this morning that The Foundry at Mockingbird Station, a reportedly fabulous high end co-working space, has locked out all its tenants. Apparently everyone showed up for work today and couldn’t even get onto the floor. Sad news because co-working spaces are one of the fastest-growing segments of commercial real estate. Just read that WeWork will soon occupy the most square footage of private office space in Manhattan!

According to reviews on yelp, the space was formerly known as The Creative Consortium. But troubles may have been brewing since last June.

I was recently helping a friend look for office space and was referred to The Foundry @ Mockingbird Station. The business was formally known as The Creative Consortium Group but now it has changed owners and is about to under go exciting renovations. The Foundry is somewhat like Regis office suites but offers so Sad news because much more. The two visits we made both times were greeted by Amy (she sets out front) as we got off the elevator – She was so nice and informative and about signed the lease b/c of her – n/k. We very quickly  introduced to the other tenets as she gave us a tour of the floor and the energy of the whole environment just made you want to be a part of it. The offices have floor to ceiling glass front walls with locking doors and windows that over look SMU and Mockingbird Station retail – just such a cool address and easy access. There is a pool table out front for stress relief 🙂 and the ability to hit the shops and restaurants down below was different than any office environment I had seen. There are 3 levels of memberships – from you need a whole office to if you have a backpack, laptop, and need wifi than this is your place. Like a Starbucks on steroids really. Starbucks does not offer you printers, shared conference rooms, and other amenities that you would have working at a large company. Bottom line I will refer anyone that is needing a office at a great price and awesome view or anyone tired of jumping from coffee shop to coffee show trying to do business. The Foundry rocks and looks to be expanding into other cities as  well.

Well maybe not…
