Co-working space opens in Midtown

A Midtown Omaha building that formerly housed music lessons, a photography studio and a chocolate shop has a new purpose.

Luke Armstrong, founder of web development company RenMind, has transformed the building at the corner of 40th and California Streets into a new coworking space and art gallery called Cali Commons.

“It all kind of fit together nicely and the space is laid out really well for a multiple-office coworking space,” Armstrong said.

The second floor of the building includes Armstrong and his partner, Molly Nicklin's, apartment and space for the gallery. The first floor will feature three private offices, one of which RenMind is using, and an open office space with room for about 10 coworkers. Artwork will also hang in the coworking space, Armstrong said. A private office will cost $300 per month while a desk in the open coworking space will be $125 per month.

The basement will be used for Armstrong and Nicklin's studio. The pair do cooperative painting performances together, and the gallery's first show will feature some of their artwork. Armstrong said he hopes to show some University of Nebraska at Omaha students' art in December.

An open house for the space will be held on Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with appetizers and drinks, Armstrong said.
