Strategy & Services: stok worked as the Wing’s Owner’s Rep Project Manager during the design and construction of the Wing’s San Francisco coworking and community space, supporting a goal to facilitate the “advancement of women through community.” The project is intended to advance women by creating new opportunities, fostering ideas, and allowing for conversations in a safe, stylish space. stok’s devotion to the client’s mission created genuine alignment, resulting in the seamless delivery of the Wing’s vision.
Project Details: stok was instrumental in helping the client navigate a new project in a new market. The local knowledge and network stok provided was immensely valuable, as was having eyes, ears, and boots on the ground. Early on, stok advised on site selection and lease terms for the East Coast team, including landlord work, tenant improvement allowance, and liquor license. As the project progressed, stok brought the team together to facilitate a partnership between the local architect, MEP engineer, and general contractor with the East Coast conceptual designer and lighting designer. The space was delivered as a cold shell and required all new MEP infrastructure, including a new electrical panel, new heating and cooling, a custom mechanical louver, and new plumbing for restrooms, showers, and the kitchen. stok managed project costs and the master schedule over a very condensed 10-week schedule, expertly guiding the client through a challenging variety of operational schedules in the building.

Outcome: Located in the iconic 1912 Beaux Arts building, the Wing now occupies a beautiful 9,000 square foot work and community space designed specifically for women. This first West Coast location features a female-staffed café serving food, coffee, wine, and cocktails; a living room featuring a library, coworking lounges, and projector screen; an all-women art gallery; phone rooms and meeting rooms; a secure lobby; and “personal space,” including a beauty room, mothers’ room, locker room, and showers. At $215 per month or $2,350 annually, with a scholarship program for people whose work supports the advancement of marginalized women and girls, the Wing’s San Francisco location is a model for accessible coworking.
