mod – a new boutique workspace with a café and vino opens

A workspace with a cafe, full kitchen, WIFI and a glass of wine…where do I sign up? mod, a transformative urban concept with its inaugural site located in the heart of midtown Phoenix offers workspace, meeting space, café with full kitchen, and yes vino. With its simple membership program and pay-as-you-go structure, entrepreneurs, young professionals, seasoned executives and workers on-the-go alike will find a home at mod.
Capitalizing on floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a location directly off the Valley METRO Light Rail line, mod is amply adequate to meet the diverse demands of workers on-the-go. An energetic open layout boasts modern furnishings and technology-driven details built with accessibility and convenience in mind. Upholstered high-back booths lend themselves to privileged conversations, an expansive community table encourages interaction and brainstorming, and the high-tech conference suites facilitate more structured, private meetings.

Founder and Managing Partner, Brian Stowell, has spent more than two decades bringing thoughtful design, transformative projects and innovative solutions to communities across the American West. As managing partner of the boutique development firm Novawest, which is now headquartered in Phoenix, Stowell was encouraged by Novawest ownership to pursue and develop mod, an inspired resolution to the abundance of vacant property plaguing the commercial real estate industry and the rising number of displaced professionals using local coffee shops as their mobile office.
“Advancing mobile technology has fostered a distributed workforce that longs for convenient and creative spaces to work, meet and gather,” notes co-founder and managing partner Brian Stowell. “The alternatives, from coffee shops to various forms of the virtual office, each lacks something that nomadic professionals need. We think mod might be that full-service solution.”
