To say we’re excited for the opening of Armature Works in Tampa Heights would be an understatement. The 70,000 sq. ft. facility will house some of the most inspired food concepts in the entire city. More than just a foodie hall, Armature Works will serve as a full on entertainment center with several event halls that are currently available for reservations. Not content to stop there, the owners have also added Bay3, a cowork space for Tampa’s aspiring and established entrepreneurs.
Heights cowork space will encourage collaboration
Bay3 offers a collaborative hub where innovative thinkers can form partnerships with one another. The space will feature open desks and lounge areas, private offices and meeting rooms, private phone booths, color printer, fax/copier, scanner and shredder, notary public on site, member honor bar, conference rooms with catering available, private lockers with mail service option and members-only events.
The space will also be replete with audio-visual equipment. Bay3 is not currently accepting applications for membership; however, interested parties can sign up for email updates to be alerted as soon as they begin the application process.
