As many of you know, we opened our second Versa location just after Labor Day. You'll find us at 305 W. Nationwide Boulevard, right at the corner of Neil Avenue in the heart of Columbus' Arena District.
Being in two locations offers advantages to our members. If you're usually based in Grandview but need to be downtown for the day, you're welcome to use the open work space at the Arena District location, or the other way around.
Did you know that Versa Arena District adds four meeting rooms for you as well? Huddle Rooms A and B are similar to the 4-person meeting rooms in Grandview. "The Arena" is similar in size to Grandview's Board Room and "The Pen" is more intimate, like Grandview's Control Tower.
Rooms at both locations are bookable online.
The color palette at Arena District is full of rich earth tones, with pops of blue and exposed brick throughout. Two gold chairs which were discovered at an estate sale by Versa's founder, April Zimmerman Katz, now reside on the mezzanine. April also hand-picked the striking lighting fixtures, from the dangling glitter tubes in the café to the giant brass kettle-drum overheads in the main room. And you never know where you might find a hidden gem.
We're right in the vibrant center of Columbus' entertainment sector, just steps from Huntington Park, Express Live! and Nationwide Arena, but once you step inside, you'll see that Versa Arena District puts the "work" in "coworking". Designed with your productivity in mind, the space is much smaller than Grandview and is primarily comprised of private offices, already furnished and sized for individuals up to teams of eight. Glass fronts let the sunlight in, while privacy glazing doubles as a white board. You can set up and get right down to business on day one.
What about parking, you ask? Fear not – we have surface lots on the north and south sides of our building. These are operated by ParkMobile for easy reservations and pay-in-app parking. Versa's Zone number is 1730. Versa Members also have the option to purchase a discounted-rate monthly parking pass, which grants daily access to either lot.
Whichever Versa you choose, rest assured our team will be on hand to make sure the snacks are fresh, the coffee is hot, and you have the services you need to start your day.
Twelve thousand square feet of coworking space arrived in the Arena District as Versa opened its second location at 305 W. Nationwide Blvd.
Versa owners April Zimmerman Katz and Kyle Katz led a tour of the new Arena District space for Columbus Business First, who had previously occupied this historic building.
Coworking brings a wide range of small companies together into a shared space, and in Columbus, the concept has taken off. Green Street Advisors estimates there are about 14,000 coworking spaces worldwide. The California real estate firm predicts that continued growth in coworking could mean a 2 to 3 percent reduction in office demand by 2030.
Take a moment to look around your office—what do you see? Drab florescent lighting? Dull, uninspired walls? Blinds shielding what little bit of natural light you are afforded? If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, Versa may be your workspace hero.
Versa is a brand new co-working space where the environment is sure to put a pep back in your professional step.

The new year kicks off with a new coworking space. Tenants start moving in this week to the first of three Versa Coworking locations slated to open across Columbus in 2018.
Real estate developers and husband-and-wife team Kyle and April Katz are behind the renovation of the 37,000 square foot space at 1201 Dublin Rd. near Grandview. Responsible for projects like the Buggyworks Condos and recently completed The Deco, it’s their first foray into coworking and their second collaborative project.
The coworking trend continues in Columbus with the opening of the first Versa location at 1201 Dublin Rd. The shared working space includes opportunities that range in price from $99 per month for access to programming and a mailing address, to $799 plus per month for a private office and various amenities like free coffee and parking.
