Located at First Street and Washington in the heart of downtown Phoenix, Arizona, The Department is a 7-floor building offering flexible office, coworking, retail, and event space all with a modern feel and the amenities needed to grow a business. 

Since no two businesses are alike, our building offers a range of space options from large office suites to street-level retail storefronts to 28,000 square feet of coworking space with comfortable seating, reserved desks, private offices, and team suites—for teams of 2 to 20. In other words, this is a place to grow

The Department’s location at 1 N. First Street was originally home to the Korrick Department Store, which opened in 1914 and served the Phoenix community for over 50 years. The building’s name today serves to honor those business leaders and entrepreneurs who came before us and took risks, worked tirelessly, and laid the foundation for the city we know and love today.

What was originally one a few department stores in Phoenix is now home to dozens of businesses including companies in large, private suites, 1-4 person offices for entrepreneurs and consultants, team spaces for digital agencies, retail storefronts, and single desks in the open coworking space. 

The building was renamed as The Department in early 2019. The Department Coworking opened in 2015 on the 6th floor of the historic mid-rise building downtown. 

A place to grow

A place with history



We are modern - both in aesthetic style and in our approach to helping businesses grow in a changing world. We push boundaries, we innovate, and we create flexible spaces that work for a variety of needs.

Once inside you’ll notice that The Department Coworking’s interior is filled with steel and wood textures that create an artisan’s aesthetic—an ode to the industrious, creative, hard-working, individuals and teams that make up our community. 

We are a place for businesses, and a place for getting business done. This place just works for getting the critical work done that grows our members and tenants.
