A new co-working space is set to open quite soon in Bostons Downtown Crossing. This November, a significant 2,750 square feet of commercial space across from the Old City Hall at 44 School Street will provide start-ups and independent professionals the opportunity to lease some of the citys best vacant office space in a truly superb location.
This is not the first news covering the revitalization of Downtown Crossing. Not long ago we reported the latest on the $616 Million Millennium Tower to be built here at the former Filenes site. Now, the addition of these co-working spaces will bring more businesses, personnel, and increased hope for a bright future to a location of the Hub that is very much in need of refreshing energy.
The Boston-based company known as Black House & Co. are the ones behind this endeavor that will see rents starting at roughly $1,000/month for 60 square feet of space for a solo practitioner. For spaces to be occupied by up to six people, a larger 150 square feet will be available for $2,000/month. The firms Founder, Maria Amparo Gonzalez, came forward to comment on this initiative by saying, Our target tenants are professionals such as consultants and lawyers, but we will also cater to start-ups.
The benefit to this form of working space is that it will provide individuals a unique sense of flexibility for their business. This alternative has been catching on as of late, with more similar projects occurring throughout Greater Boston. Just in July, a 15,000 square foot center known as NGIN Workplace opened at 210 Broadway in Cambridges Kendall Square. This magnificent facility offers spaces starting at $400/month. Some of the other benefits with this movement in commercial spaces is that there is always an on-call secretary, IT support, and various essential business services provided to the tenant.
