Nationally Expanding Co-Working Franchise Plans to Open Five Locations in the Market Over the Next Several Years

JACKSONVILLE, FL, February 28, 2018 – Cushman & Wakefield has negotiated an 8,084-square-foot suburban office lease for Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working space, private office space, virtual offices and business services, at Jacksonville’s JTB Center. The company has plans to open five locations in the Jacksonville market over the next several years.

In addition to Jacksonville, Office Evolution has several locations planned for the Tampa Bay market, the first of which is expected to open in February.

Senior Associate David Hillegas

Cushman & Wakefield’s David Hillegas, Senior Associate, represented Office Evolution in the lease. Victor Hughes with Touchton Property Partners represented the landlord, JTB Center, LLC.

The JTB Center office, at 5011 Gate Parkway, Building 100, is currently being built out and will feature 30 private offices, a large co-working lounge and two conference rooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 12  people.

“We’re thrilled to introduce a new co-working option that offers the flexibility, privacy and business capabilities that help small business owners and entrepreneurs succeed,” said Office Evolution franchise owner Michael Wielgus. “Our new center is centrally located with easy access to major highways. It’s also close to the St. Johns Town Center, which will provide our members with access to the best shopping and dining in Jacksonville.”

While the space is being completed, Office Evolution has opened a leasing and model office in the JTB Center, where interested clients can take a tour and view renderings. An official opening is planned for May.

In addition to work space, Office Evolution provides phone answering services, private mailboxes and other business solutions. Clients also have access to several amenities, including a lounge area, kitchen, complimentary tea and coffee, staffed reception, 24-hour accessibility, plug-n-play capabilities and more.

“The Jacksonville market has been highly receptive to the concept of co-working,” said Hillegas. “By offering both private offices and shared co-working space, along with a variety of business services and solutions, Office Evolution offers a fresh take on an increasingly popular way to work.”

JTB Center is a 220,000-square-foot Class A office park located along J. Turner Butler Boulevard. The location offers convenient access to Interstate 95 and State Road 9A and is within minutes of an array of premier dining, shopping and lodging options at Tinseltown and St. Johns Town Center.
