Varidesk to Transform Office Building into ‘Active Workspace Environment’

Varidesk has purchased the former Zales headquarters to create VARISPACE Las Colinas, where startups and fast-growing companies can work in a modern, flexible environment.

Whether it’s revolutionizing the workplace with trademarked sit-stand desks, creating agile workplace solutions like movable wall panels, or launching the first-ever airport coworking space, Varidesk is known for its diverse range of industry innovations. Now, the Coppell-based company has announced it’s stepping into unfamiliar territory with a new office concept set to open this summer: VARISPACE Las Colinas.

Housing the space, which Varidesk says is going to be an “active workspace environment,” is a 424,000-square-foot, three-story Class A building at 901 W. Walnut Hill Lane. Co-founder and CEO of Varidesk Jason McCann says the opening will bring a new option for startups and fast-growing companies looking for a more modern, flexible environment.

“At Varidesk, we help businesses reimagine the office and create adaptable, active workspaces,” McCann said in a statement. “We see many possibilities for VARISPACE Las Colinas, as we explore how it could be repositioned.”

Built in 1983, the building sits on 15.22 acres in the Las Colinas Office Center submarket on the southeast corner of West John Carpenter Freeway and MacArthur Boulevard. Formerly the Zales headquarters, the building is equipped with a four-level parking garage, full fitness center, cafeteria, and conference facilities. It is also adaptable for single or multi-tenant use.

Varidesk says a redesign of the building will “activate the entry plaza, promote connectivity to the outdoors, and modernize the space with Class A amenities to support today’s workforce.” Cushman & Wakefield is assisting with the redevelopment and lease-up and Corgan is the project’s architect and interior designer.

Known for promoting a healthier and more productive workspace, Varidesk offers a full line of office furniture and accessories that promote activity and movement. All products are designed to quickly and easily transform any area. So while the announced project is a new concept for Varidesk, it certainly isn’t the company’s first dive into the world of innovation.

    I’m concerned about employees with mobility issues. It’s terrible to be the ONE employee who cannot do what others are doing by way of mobility. This environment, I’m afraid, would highlight that even more.
    People who THINK at work have been suffering for years with the open office concepts and someone standing (literally) over your shoulder while you work. I cannot imagine that more of this nonsense is going to make things better.
    It’s no wonder that so many studies show an increased productivity from remote employees.
