Phoenix-based co-working space Co+Hoots is spreading its wings and expanding to downtown Mesa as part of the planned $60 million Grid mixed-use development.

The second Co+Hoots space will be in a 13,500-square-foot nest at a project that has yet to break ground but one that promises restaurants, offices and 500 new residents along downtown Mesa’s Main Street.

Mesa Mayor John Giles made the announcement at his State of the City breakfast address Feb. 6.

The new co-working space, at 233 E. Main St., has a planned fall 2019 opening, said Co+Hoots founder Jenny Poon.

“We believe in the city of Mesa’s commitment to transforming its downtown into a vibrant urban core,” Poon said. “We love downtown Mesa’s already hyper-localized community and believe a Co+Hoots location that will reflect downtown Mesa’s distinctive personality will be a great fit. Among many of our goals, the Mesa location will support and bring together the area’s entrepreneurial, startup and small business community, create jobs, provide free business and technology education through our nonprofit Co+Hoots Foundation, and become a major economic driver for Mesa.”
