The Department – Kyle Frazey, Managing Director

In Business Magazine Cover Story, March 2020


The Department is a mid-rise building in downtown Phoenix that provides cutting-edge space for co-working, retail, office and events. Launched in 2015, The Department was the first co-working space in the core of downtown Phoenix and doubled the size of its co-working offering in 2019. It was launched as an initiative of Marketplace One, an impact-investment firm based in Phoenix, with a desire to foster an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Phoenix’s urban core. With 28,000 square feet of workspace, The Department Coworking is home to hundreds of entrepreneurs, including startups, social enterprises, designers, developers, remote workers, consultants and small-business owners.

The Department Coworking serves as a hub for innovation, entrepreneurship and small business in the heart of Phoenix. Not only does it offer the “coolest office space in Phoenix,” there is also a thriving community of entrepreneurs who call this building home. With flexible spaces and friendly lease terms, The Department provides great options for teams to start, grow and scale their businesses. People come to The Department because of the cool space, but they stay because of the community.
