Our Story

It all started with a parking lot. At the time, Anchor founder Bobby Dunn had no intention of creating a co-working space — he was actually looking for a parking lot where he could teach people how to use Boosted Boards (think: skateboards with a motor) without crashing. A developer he knew didn't have any parking lots available... but he did know of a building that might be suitable for an indoor skate park.

The indoor skatepark didn't pan out, but the minute Bobby stepped into the 15,000 sq. foot space, he knew it was something special. He signed the lease on the spot, and, after tossing a few ideas around (DIY gallery? Giant soundbath space? Indoor graffiti park?) he realized it would be the perfect co-working space. But not the kind of co-working space that felt stuffy, corporate, and bland. One that was vibrant, and a true community for its members. And so, Anchor was born.

7 years later, Anchor has grown into a co-working space that’s just as much about community as it is about productivity. Here, you’re just as likely to meet an app founder or software engineer as a realtor, lawyer, social worker, or artist. We want members to feel a sense of belonging and ownership in the space, and treat it like an extension of their homes. In fact, we’ve heard the space is “like walking into your parent’s basement” — minus the funky smell, of course.
