Here’s what space manager Jesse Day has to say about their space.
When did you open your coworking space?
We opened in February of 2017
Tell us about your space? How big is it? What kinds of amenities do you have?
Our space is 3,200 sq ft, comprised of 2 private offices, 30 dedicated desks and 10 open seats. Along with Wifi and 24/7 access, we serve Ozo Coffee and Upstart Kombucha, breakfast 2 days per week, lockable bike storage, a conference room with Apple TV, 2 phone booths, 2 bathrooms with shower, and for those who wish, the EcoPass commuter pass.
What is your favorite thing about operating a coworking space?
The people. We have a GREAT group of people coworking with us. Our space is fabulous – it’s sunny, inviting, and a cool industrial modern feel. Still, it’s the people that make any coworking space, and our members are the best.
What has been the most surprising/unexpected thing about operating a coworking space?
Our coworking space has organically gained its unique community. I had all sorts of ideas of who our members would be and what the feel of our coworking space would be, but it grew up on its own. It has been really fun to watch.
What’s your favorite story of one of your members?
Not so much a story about one of our members, but many. This year we decided to show the World Cup on our big screen in the main coworking space. It was fun to see how much interest it gained from our coworkers! At a certain point during each game, you could find a good handful of folks taking a break and really getting into the games.
What is your biggest piece of advice for someone wanting to open a space?
Don’t try to force the character of your coworking space, it will come together as your membership grows. And by letting it grow from your members, the coworking space really becomes a community that we all value.
