Gravitate Downtown

Our downtown Des Moines location is 317 6th Avenue, Suite 102. We're on the ground floor of the former Bank of America Building with street level access on Locust St. We're accessible via the skywalk system and most DART routes. We also allow for bikes.

Parking is available near us at parking meters or in the nearby garages at 9th & Locust and 8th & Mulberry. Click here for parking options.



Gravitate Valley Junction

Our West Des Moines location is in the heart of Historic Valley Junction at 318 5th Street. We're accessible on foot or bike and parking is free in front of the building or in the lot behind. DART routes 11 & 72 (Valley Junction) will get you closest to our location.


Coming Soon: Gravitate Ames

We're building a community of Ames-area entrepreneurs, startup teams, solo workers, freelancers and remote employees.

Coworking is the idea of bringing independent professionals and small teams together in a shared and flexible environment to work alongside each other, to interact and to collaborate. In short: to work better.

Gravitate started as a coworking community in downtown Des Moines in 2014 with a mix of high density/low cost workspace, programming and event space and to serve as a front door to the region's startup community. We call it "the entrepreneurial center of gravity in downtown Des Moines".

Now we're working on a second location with the same goals in Ames. As a bonus, there will be one membership for both locations.

Pop Up Coworking Day

We're starting off 2016 with a series of Pop Up Coworking Days (old school coworking folks probably called this "Jellies") in Ames. If you think coworking might be interesting to you, join us for an hour or two (or the whole time).

Future events will always be announced on Facebook and Meetup.

See you there!
