Syracuse CoWorks Moves into New Downtown Location

office work placeFreelancers and entrepreneurs in the Syracuse area are no longer limited to working in their home office,a coffeeshop or a library. Syracuse CoWorks, a coworking office space, opened last week in downtown Syracuse at 201 E. Jefferson St.

Coworking is a style of work that involves using a shared office space, which usually has an open floor plan and collaborative atmosphere.

According to Syracuse.com, Syracuse CoWorks currently has 22 members and is hoping to accommodate 30 or 40 people. Tenants in coworking spaces usually pay by the hour, the day, or the month.

The number of coworking spaces in the United States has increased dramatically in the last few years. In 2008, there were only about 40 coworking office spaces. This rose to 300 only two years ago, and jumped to the 800 that exist now.

Syracuse CoWorks chose to move into the new space because the organization outgrew the one where it began in 2012, which is located in the Tech Garden, the CNY Business Journal reports. The new space features 32 open desks and different-sized conference rooms.

“We truly believe it will be a hub of activity and a great meeting space for new and established businesses,” Syracuse CoWorks chairman John Talarico said in a news release.

Syracuse CoWorks celebrated the opening with a free full day of coworking, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a formal event beginning at the end of the workday.

Daily rates to use the space begin at $50, and monthly rates begin at $100. If a member wants a private office, the rate is $300.

Aside from a new coworking space, the Jefferson St. address will also soon be home to a co-living space. On the fourth and fifth floors, space will be converted into smaller bedrooms and bathrooms connected to a shared living and kitchen areas. Rent will be in the range of $700 to $850.
