Thrive Coworking has announced its plans to expand its coworking business space to downtown Roswell at 1015 Alpharetta St. by mid-2020.
Currently with two locations in downtown Alpharetta and Milton — and another to open in Canton — Thrive is an expanding coworking and office space for business owners, professionals and startups in metro Atlanta.
Thrive will occupy approximately 18,000 square feet in a 32,400 square foot development. Thrive provides meeting rooms, shared workspace, dedicated desks, individual offices, team offices and office cluster solutions for large corporate teams, small to mid sized businesses and entrepreneurs in industries of all types. The space will also house amenities such as a brewery, coffee shop and multiple restaurants.
While Thrive’s Roswell location will maintain the company’s core values of community, connection and growth, Thrive founder Ramon Gonzalez says that Roswell will be different. Gonzalez hopes to blur the lines between workspace, dining and recreation in Roswell.
“What we found is that people really like working in spaces that have some energy and some life in them — spaces that are unique and different,” Gonzalez said. “Roswell is really going to showcase that.”
Council member Mike Palermo, liaison to community development, is excited for Thrive to come to Historic Roswell. He believes Thrive will give many Roswell residents who currently work outside of the city the opportunity to work in Roswell.
“(Thrive) really does a great job of creating a destination, building a community and supporting its local area,” Palermo said.
The impact that Thrive will have on the Roswell community is an emphasis for Thrive representatives and Roswell city officials alike. Palermo says he looks forward to the daytime vibrance Thrive will help to bring to downtown, as Thrive members service Roswell’s restaurants and other offerings.
“(I am excited for) the opportunity to work with some of the local organizations, both public and private, to help grow the entrepreneurial and business community in downtown,” Gonzalez said. “We’re really excited about being a part of the transformation of that part of downtown.”
An official opening date has not yet been set.
