Look Inside the Mixed-Use Creative Community at Oak Cliff’s Tyler Station

Tyler Station is now full to the brim with entrepreneurs. See what makes the collaborative village one-of-a-kind with our photo gallery.

Oak Cliff native and co-founder Monte Anderson had a vision when acquiring the former Dixie Wax Paper manufacturing plant: to create a collaborative village for aspiring creatives and business owners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, now called Tyler Station.

Almost three years ago, over 500 locals got a sneak peek at the open space that would soon be known as Tyler Station. Now, the community is home to over 60 different businesses.

Take a look inside the unique community of workspaces, which just hit full capacity.

Wax Space Coworking

Wax Space Co-working, a coworking space with a modern aesthetic, anchors Tyler Station. Members are invited to collaborate and create within the Oak Cliff community, without inspirational quotes on the walls.

Wide open

Tyler Station provides open spaces that are limited only by one’s imagination. And Aikikai, another occupant of the collaborative workspace, has made it its own. The multi-disciplinary martial arts school incorporates mind, body, and spirit into Aikido, a Japanese form of self-defense.

Creating a new kind of workspace

Tyler Station provides workspaces where people can express themselves. From a local barbershop owner to a graphic designer to a candle distributor, their offices are as unique as they are.

And, there’s beer

“Fresh beer with Oak Cliff roots” is the motto for this recently rebranded brewery located in Tyler Station. The company partnered with graphic designer and neighboring tenant Jeff Rogers, who helped create a new look to represent the company’s growth.
