BendTECH Construction

Construction is wrapping up at 1001 SW Emkay and all offices in our new coworking space are fully booked. We are excited to announce our move-in date of Feb 16, and a grand opening party to be scheduled soon thereafter.

Here’s a snapshot of how the space looks right now – doors to be installed and floors polished in the coming weeks:

In addition to the coworking offices and desks, the space will include Stackhouse Coffee & Bar with a 3000sqft indoor/outdoor cafe area that can be rented for events and large meetings or presentations. We’re really looking forward to moving in, and the public is invited to stop in any time to hang out and enjoy the free wifi in the cafe area.
