A community co-working space for women, non-binary and trans people in Minneapolis is expanding to open a new location in St. Paul.

Almost two years after launching in Minneapolis at 30 North 1st Street in the North Loop, The Coven is set to launch in the Blair Arcade building on Selby and Western in St. Paul  

The Coven St. Paul is holding its grand opening event on Tuesday, Jan. 28, with Mayor Melvin Carter among those in attendance.

As well as offering community workspace, phone booths and conference rooms, The Coven also offers on-site childcare, private offices, 24/7 access, and free parking, and a parent and prayer room.

For those in need of a break, The Coven also comes with a "self care room" stocked with hair and skin products.

The 9,000-square-foot of space is set across five units on the upper and lower floors of the side of the Blair Arcade building.

"We partnered with women-owned firms Studio BV and Kalcon to combine these distinctive units and breath new life into this historic space, honoring the already gorgeous architecture and presence of the building," said Coven co-founder Erinn Farrell.

"We also worked with prestigious home-grown brands BluDot & Fluid Interiors to bring our members the best in modern, functional design."

The space will be decorated with the artwork from a selection of local artists, and will host a series of events focused on helping members fund and grow new businesses, and developing financial skills "critical to the advancement of women."

Membership to The Coven starts at $140-a-month, giving you access to the workspaces three days per month. A standard membership, providing unlimited access, costs $225, while a founding membership runs you $1,800.
