Work & Mother is Now Open for Private Tours and Enrollment
In October 2019, we announced the exciting news that Work & Mother – a network of fully equipped lactation facilities with an associated app for booking, support community, and educational resources for working mothers who are breastfeeding – had signed on to become part of the Brookfield Properties community. Now we are pleased to share that the Work & Mother suite is open for private tours and enrollment!

Designed by PDR, the new, upscale Work & Mother suite at Three Allen Center has 10 private rooms, each equipped with a hospital grade pump, milk storage bags and other supplies; cleaning and sanitizing stations; lockers; refrigeration options; and more. The Work & Mother suites are spa-like, yet professional, and are outfitted with workstations that enable moms to work while they pump, should they choose to.

Work & Mother worked closely with Brookfield Properties on the space so that the mothers who work within the Allen Center campus could have a beautiful, professional amenity that enables them to pump safely and with dignity. In addition, the facility helps Brookfield Properties’ tenants satisfy the nursing mother provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA Section 7(r)).

Incorporating wellness-focused amenities, like Work & Mother, has played a significant role in our Reimagining of Allen Center project. In addition to Work & Mother, our tenants will also be able to enjoy a new wellness room and bike room which are scheduled to open in late 2020.
