Craftwork coffee shop/co-working space opening in Near Southside

Apr 25, 2017

Craftwork Coffee Co plans to launch a second Fort Worth location in the Near Southside this spring. The coffee-coworking business will bring its signature specialty drinks and vibrant workspace to the community along Magnolia Ave. The new 1,850-square foot space to 1121 W. Magnolia Ave. is between MELT and Heim Barbecue.

The space will be designed by 97w Studios and will feature a 36-seat coffee shop, outdoor seating, 14 dedicated desks, coworking space with 24/7 access, two call booths and a conference room.

Craftwork's first location on Camp Bowie opened in January 2016. The 35-member workspace is filled with a mixture of entrepreneurs, salespeople, designers, realtors, and photographers, who benefit from the all-inclusive workspace memberships that start at $200 per month. When the Magnolia location opens, all Craftwork members will gain access to both locations.

Co-founders Riley Kiltz and Collin Sansom are both residents of Fairmount, so the new space makes sense.

"Living in Fairmount, we constantly meet people from the Near Southside who are starting new businesses,” Kiltz said. “From custom suit designers to brand storytellers, the spectrum is broad, but that's what makes our district so compelling. We're looking forward to seeing the mosaic of people that enter our doors."

Craftwork was represented by Dana Quisenberry of Trinity Partners in the transaction, and the

Landlord was represented by Tyler Maner of Stream Realty.
