We have a new co-working space in St. Louis that brings the total to six choices in my immediate neighborhood of the Central West End to locate your office. These are alternatives to renting your own office, or when your business has grown beyond your dining room and requires something more professional. Or when you need temporary conference space, or want to conduct a training session. They combine flexibility with the gig economy, and provide benefits and camaraderie too. I am a big fan of these places, even though I inhabit my own permanent office.
The new kid in the ‘hood is called Spaces and is part of a network of hundreds of sites located across the country and around the world. I wrote this review for Nicki’s Central West End Guide about them and its competitors. Surprisingly, it was hard to pin down prices on office rental. I also suggest a few things to think about when you are trying to choose your space that can apply no matter where you are located.
