The Shop at the Contemporary Arts Center

The Shop is a comprehensive co-working development at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC). Targeting technology, arts, and cultural-based businesses; The Shop serves as a hub of entrepreneurship in the developing Downtown innovation corridor.

The project occupies the third and fourth floors of the CAC, connecting the two floors with an open architectural staircase and featuring an extensive amenity and commons area, varied meeting and office space, and a roof deck. This renovation preserves the classic Warehouse District architecture of the existing building while incorporating modern elements. The light-filled space features high ceilings with exposed beams, large windows, a contemporary art collection, and a flowing, open floor plan. 

The heart of The Shop is the commons area designed to facilitate conversation and connection. It boasts a full kitchen, seating options, coffee station, snacks available for purchase, and communal and recreational space. All of The Shop’s amenities offer small businesses, entrepreneurs, and arts-based professionals the resources they need to grow.
