A Taste of What’s Coming to The Root – Market Station

If you haven’t heard the news, The Root Coworking is expanding to its second location in Tulsa, located in the bustling Tulsa Market District at 12th and Lewis. Allow us to introduce you to The Root Coworking – Market Station. This truly distinct location will take on many characteristics that make this historic neighborhood so special. The Root Coworking has partnered with local Tulsa developers, Wayback Properties to bring a unique hospitality approach to its brand of coworking and flex office offerings.

This is the type of project that we dream about. We started outlining our plan for this location back in January of 2021 with our partners, and it’s true, good things come to those who wait. Our team has worked incredibly hard on this project and we could not be more excited to finally open this amazing space to the people of Tulsa.

The name Market Station was conceived from a combination of the location, the Tulsa Market District, and the fact that some of the property happens to sit on a BNSF railway. A train will typically pass alongside the property a couple times a day, adding a cool 1920’s prohibition type nostalgia to the site.

The Root Coworking – Market Station will feature over 10,000 square feet across two floors, including 3 meeting rooms, 18 private offices, 2 team suites, and an abundant amount of shared and dedicated open workspace. On-site amenities include a Hospitality Bar, featuring complimentary bottomless drip coffee and beer on tap for members, and a separate new café concept operated by Notion Espresso built into the first floor with a full menu of food and drink items made to order.

Aside from all of the awesome on-site amenities, The Root Coworking – Market Station is located just a few steps away from the very popular food hall, Mother Road Market, which will give our members the ability to choose from over 20 different dining experiences, all in one location.

We have worked closely with our design team at W-Design to incorporate the uniqueness of historic Route 66, the BNSF Railway, and the Tulsa Market District into this location. The first floor will take on a look of a trendy, upscale coffee shop, with plenty of lounge seating options. Leading to an open, beautiful stairway through the center of the building, connecting to the upper floor where you will find most of our private offices and dedicated desks. 

Meet Our Market Station Community Manager!

Allow us to introduce/re-introduce you to our Market Station Community Manager, Jessica Thomas! 

If you are familiar with us then you are familiar with Jess. Jess has been the Community Manager at The Root – East Village for over two years. While we will be sad to not see her smiling face at East Village every day, we know that Market Station will be in good hands with Jess!

“I’m a born and raised Tulsan with all the hometown recommendations for food, fun, and festivities! Cultivating the community here at The Root is my absolute favorite—when I connect two members with common interests, I do a lil’ happy dance. When I tell people what I do for work, they always tell me they wish they could work with me. Good news is that you can! Come sit at the Hospitality Bar and chat with me while we work; it makes the day fly by! On the weekends, you can catch me at the newest restaurant, reading the latest thriller book, or lounging around watching the scariest horror movies with my dog, Navy. If you need anything at all, I’m just a text away!”
