The new business model across the country is shared office space. In New York City at 1412 Broadway, the 21st floor houses an outstanding example of this forward thinking space. The shared office space in New York Workvill NYC is a space filled with light and the warmth of the sun. It is spacious yet inclusive. The combination of its wide expanse yet inclusive feel yields many choices for the worker, freelancer or entrepreneur to thrive.
Minutes from Times Square, Bryant Park and easily accessible to major traffic arteries in the middle of Manhattan, one gets a sense of optimism at finding such relatively affordable space in such sought after
environs. Landlords have often struggled with having a property sit unused and unoccupied. Workers and business owners have dreamed of space that they could pay for only when needed.
These work spaces help overcome some of the setbacks to working at home. One of the most insidious is the inability to turn off the workday mentality when the day is over. It is actually difficult to know when that time of day has come. The phone keeps ringing and the email keeps clicking in.
Imagine the freedom of leaving the dirty dishes and unmade bed behind (no, not you, of course!)
Getting on the train or bus for a short jaunt, preferably one’s office is somewhat nearby. The commute is novel and relaxing.
The friendly atmosphere is one of the great perks. The possibilities for social interaction just went up.
Whether the office is one’s own, a shared two-person or more arrangement or the larger, very open space that has no particular assigned seating from day to day, the choice is abundantly clear: Open, collaborative spaces is the new normal.
Prices range from $750.00 a month for a dedicated desk in a private office and $1,500 for a 2 person,
private office. One can book space by the month, day or hour. Conference Rooms: $100.00/hour.
The bright side has advantages: no utility bills, access to printers, the great possibility of networking and trading referrals. Moments to step outside to the terrace and think through this move to Workville, NYC and what it means.
