Spark Coworking Holds Grand Opening in St. Louis

Spark St. Louis, a new collaborative workspace, recently celebrated its grand opening in Ballpark Village adjacent to Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis. The 30,000-square-foot workspace will feature dedicated and non-dedicated workstations, 80-plus private offices and five suites.

Leaders from Spark Coworking were joined by Bill DeWitt III, president of the St. Louis Cardinals; Otis Williams, executive director of St. Louis Development Corporation; Jason Hall, CEO of Greater St. Louis, Inc. and numerous business and community leaders at the June 8 grand opening. 

“Creating a space where creativity and community can flourish is a win for our region,” said Hall. “A space like Spark not only strengthens Downtown by bringing more people here every day, but it also promotes the entrepreneurship that is one of the core strengths of the metro and creates connections that will help build the future of our city.”
