New York City-based coworking-space operator Joynture is opening a 23,000-square-foot location in April at the former South Street home of Pearl Art & Craft.

The 417 South St. space will consist of about 40 private offices and 60 open desks, Joynture said in a release Thursday.

The Philadelphia space follows Joynture's first location in New York's Financial District, it said. A location also is planned this year in Lahore, Pakistan, according to its website.

The South Street space had been occupied by a dance school following Pearl's closure.
