New Kiln space opens in Park City
Park City — Kiln, one of the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed flex-office and coworking communities in the country, officially opened its fifth location in Park City, Utah this week.
Twenty of 37 offices and all two-person offices were reserved in the 22,000 square-foot, lifestyle-oriented space, the former location of Jupiter Bowl. The first companies to make Kiln their home include 1440, DBD Partners, Proforma, Hyperquake, ShePlace, Nava.io, Element Catering Services, Hearth & Hill, Vizio, and Bazaarvoice. Tori Sowul, a Park City native has been named Community Director. Anyone interested in learning more about Kiln is welcome to attend an open house on Thursdays, 4-6 pm during the month of April. In an effort to follow safety guidelines and maintain social distancing, RSVP is requested at kiln.co/events.
“As an internationally known resort destination with unrivaled accessibility, Park City attracts full and part-time residents who are leaders and innovators in a vast array of business sectors,” says Arian Lewis, Co-Founder and CEO of Kiln. “There has never been this kind of robust, collaborative setting for local professionals, and we are pleased by the enthusiasm. As businesses have reimagined the workplace during the pandemic, Kiln is well positioned to provide office settings that accommodate companies of varying sizes and networking opportunities in an inspired workplace that promotes growth and collaboration.”
An enticing benefit is the ability for members to access the facilities in Kiln’s Salt Lake City and Lehi locations and the potential for a 4th Utah location in the near future. Given that many Park City professionals conduct business in the Valley or may have associates flying in, a conducive place to meet and collaborate is a welcome convenience for Park City members.
“I’m very excited about what Kiln Park City will do for my company and our community. I believe this is where our entrepreneurs and business leaders will come together to collaborate towards mutual success,” says Jon Jessup, CEO and Founder of 1440, who has an office suite at Kiln. 1440 is a consumer engagement and analytics platform for consumer brands to help them maximize their precious minutes—of which there are 1,440 per day. The platform helps customers manage their B2C and B2B eCommerce sales, service, and marketing across consumer channels like Amazon, Shopify, Google, and Facebook.
ShePlace, a new entity for all self-identifying women looking to invest in themselves and each other, has a Studio office space at Kiln. Focused on the power of connection, ShePlace facilitates sharing and opportunities for education and inspiration through expert dance partners around the world. Founder Jacki Zehner says, “As a new business, Kiln appealed to us for many reasons including how new and beautiful the space is, amenities like event spaces and podcast recording studio, and that our office size can easily evolve with us. Additionally, since our business is about both building and serving our community, our space needs to share that commitment.”
Kiln features private and open office spaces that accommodate up to 30 people, meeting rooms, a large event space, a podcast studio, phone booths, and a robust set of wellness-focused amenities. It also includes a mountaineering club with ski storage, bike racks, and other accommodations for personal equipment. Kiln Park City is designed to support its community of members holistically, housing executives, creatives, and tech and enterprise teams. In keeping with the “Bark City” lifestyle, it is also dog friendly.
