STAMFORD — Serendipity Labs plans a major expansion of its shared workspace center in the city’s South End by the end of this year to meet growing demand, the firm’s chief executive told Hearst Connecticut Media on Friday.

Opened in September, the Serendipity hub now covers about 13,000 square feet on the ground floor at 700 Canal St. The expansion would add about 9,000 square feet on the same level, bringing the total footprint to about 22,000 square feet. With the extra space, Serendipity would occupy the entire first floor.

By growing, Serendipity would have room to increase its membership from approximately 160 to about 300. All of the complex’s existing “dedicated workspaces” of private offices and team rooms are sold and occupied, with a waiting list in place, according to founder and CEO John Arenas.
