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.
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.
A place at Tyler
Also located inside Tyler Station is Place at Tyler, the 2,900-square-foot space perfect for weddings, ceremonies, parties and more.
Spaces for makers
Another example of a flexible space for passionate people in Tyler Station is Springer & Grass Woodwork, the design studio that makes handcrafted wooden heirlooms below the village’s main floor.
Artists of every stripe
Co-founder and urbanist Monte Anderson created Tyler Station for artists of all trades to be able to work in a comfortable and appealing environment. The Pink Jacket studio has embraced originality, packing its space with bright colors.
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.

The mixed-use creative development in Oak Cliff was the brainchild of new urbanist pioneer Monte Anderson. As one tenant puts it: “I don’t know of anything like it in Dallas or really any other city.”
