Work is almost complete on Pipeline Realty’s conversion of the 2-story office building at 2617 Bissonnet (seen at top in a recent photo) into a new second-story coworking space called Local Office. The 13,500-sq.-ft. building, pictured above before the 2 trees standing in front were removed and larger windows were poked into its north and west facades, previously served as the offices of Industrial Audio/Video.
Local Office, due to open sometime next month, will be joined early next year by a ground-floor coffee shop, labeled “Local Coffee” on the rendering below but more likely to be a third outlet of the growing local Cavo Coffee chain:
Local West U nightclub Marquis II is the building’s western neighbor; around the corner in the other direction on Kirby Dr., a third location of Austin juicery Juiceland opened up last month.
Local Office will include more than 35 private offices, as well as a hybrid cafe-reception areaÂ of its own, a multi-person work bar, and private phone booths.
