The idea of coworking space is not new. However, it is new to the Brookside area in Tulsa. With the creation of Brookside Collective, we are embarking on Brookside’s first ever coworking space.
Over the last 3 years, we have begun to make a name for ourselves by trying to help build community in Brookside through hosting events at our park for families and neighbors around our city. We have hosted everything from fitness events to animal adoptions to splash days to movie nights and much more. We have talked to our neighbors and new friends and have come to realize that community is one of the most important priorities in our city, so we wanted to find more ways to develop a community that cares for and supports one another. This is how the idea for the Brookside Collective coworking space was birthed.
As we work towards creating a physical building on our park property at 37th place and Peoria, we have acquired the top floor of the building next door to serve as a trial for what we expect to be the next model of small business and remote work in Brookside. While other for-profit businesses seek to make significant gains for investors, we at Brookside Collective want to develop a healthy community of professionals while offering dedicated desks and offices at a lower price point. This offers unparalleled accessibility to one of Tulsa’s fastest growing and most desirable business districts.
Our team is small but mighty. We are here to help in any way that we can to make you and your business a success.
