Carr Workplaces Convergence – Opening June 15

Industry-Leading Coworking Company to Open New Location in Purdue University’s Discovery Park District

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 5 – Carr Workplaces, a pioneer and leader in the coworking industry, will open the doors of its newest location, Carr Workplaces Convergence, on June 15 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Carr Workplaces Convergence will be located within the Convergence Center on the west side of Purdue’s renowned campus, at the heart of the groundbreaking Discovery Park District. It will serve as the new home of innovation and collaboration for entrepreneurs and industry pioneers alike.

Purdue’s newest coworking hub will occupy roughly 20,000 square feet of space within the five-story Convergence building. Businesses will have the opportunity to plant their flag within walking distance of Purdue’s research centers – allowing companies to be in direct contact with over 2,000 accomplished faculty members and more than 50,000 of Indiana’s brightest undergraduate and graduate students.

Carr Workplaces Convergence will occupy the first and second floor of the Convergence Center and will feature 68 state-of-the-art private offices – complete with four solid walls and a lockable door. With a distinct focus on collaboration, Carr Workplaces Convergence will provide students, administrators, and faculty with access to a drop-in serviced office space as well as meeting rooms that will drive innovative team projects. Carr Workplaces will be providing virtual and in-person IT-support, as well as administrative services, for tenants on all five floors of the Convergence Center. Additionally, Carr Workplace is proud to provide Purdue alumni and those in need of an Indiana virtual office address the opportunity to retain a professional business address in West Lafayette.

As Carr Workplaces Convergence is the company’s first location in Indiana, Carr Workplaces has announced that it is now a member of the Indiana Coworking Passport. Known shortly as the ICP, the Indiana Coworking Passport allows members of any participating space to cowork at any other participating location, for a day each month, for free.

“We are thrilled to bring Carr Workplaces to West Lafayette, to the Discovery Park District, and to the Purdue University campus,” said Ashley Buckner, Chief Operations Officer of Carr Workplaces. ”We immediately recognized the synergies between a dynamic, forward-thinking, innovative community and the flexible, service-focused workspace product that we provide. We look forward to serving the community as a place where businesses, faculty, and students can gather and grow together.”

“Carr Workplaces provides an important component for Convergence Center and all that is happening on the west side of the Purdue University campus,” said David Broecker, chief innovation and collaboration officer for Purdue Research Foundation. “The entrepreneurial community across the state is already taking advantage of what Carr can offer as a co-working hub in our Discovery Park District. We anticipate that the space will attract a vibrant mix of companies and startups as well as individual entrepreneurs and innovators.”

Ahead of Monday’s opening, Zorion Medical – an Indianapolis-based innovative medical device company – expanded its operations by signing on as one of the first businesses to move into Carr Workplaces Convergence.

Carr Workplaces Convergence will open on June 15, 2020 at 101 Foundry Drive in Purdue University’s Discovery Park District. It will serve as the entryway to the $1 billion-plus district and is designed to provide an exceptional environment for educational, economic, community, and real estate development at Purdue University.
