What's included in each workspace?
The building has been designed with the convenience and economy for our tenants in mind. All of our workspaces have high ceilings and are individually heated and include a window and a private, locking entrance. All workspaces are pre-wired for phone lines, cable television and high-speed internet access which can be set up through Comcast, Wave or ITDreamwire.
How much does it cost?
Our rates start around $360. Creative workspaces are economical because you can rent the exact size you require without getting charged for a bigger space then you need. You don't need to commit to a long term lease, so you can rent for only the number of months that you actually use the space. Each workspace is priced differently depending on size, shape, condition and location. Rent is full service, which means that expenses such as heat, electricity, parking, taxes and common area maintenance are included in the base rent.
How large is each workspace? How much space do I need?
Common sizes are 10x13 and 15x15. A 10x13 is sufficient space for a one person office, while a 15x15 is a more spacious two person office, suitable for meeting with clients. We also have sizes both smaller and larger than that.
Do I have to commit to a year long lease?
No. You can rent a workspace on a flexible month-to-month basis and leave anytime you no longer need your space. We require a refundable security deposit at the time you sign up, and 20-day notice if you decide to move out.
What if I need to break my lease?
Since we only do month to month contracts, there is no need to break your lease. We just require 20 days written notice, due on or before the 10th of the month you intend to move out.
Is there anything I can't do at Creative Workspace?
Our spaces are highly versatile and well suited for many activities. We do require that all activities be safe, legal, consistent with zoning regulations, and not disruptive to others. Prohibited activities include auto repair, machine shops, nail salons, perms and band rehearsals. If you're wondering if your activity is a good fit, please feel free to contact us.
Can my clients, associates or family visit?
Our buildings are people-friendly, so feel free to have visitors. Retail businesses are welcome, but only in designated storefront spaces. On-line retail sales companies are welcome in the workspaces, as long as your customers are doing their shopping on-line.
Can I receive clients and other visitors at my workspace?
Of course. Visitors may contact a tenant by using the electronic directory located next to the elevator on the ground floor. The tenant will then buzz in the visitor from their workspace.
How do clients and others visit my workspace?
You can send down the elevator using an app that you as a tenant can install on your phone. When a client calls you you can enable the elevator for them. A directory of businesses in the building can be found on this website. A QR code link is also posted at the elevator to scan with your phone to access the building directory.
Can I paint my space?
Yes! We provide the blank slate for you to make the space your own. You can paint, add shelving or window treatments, or even change the flooring. However, we ask that you return the unit in the original condition upon moving out.
Can I move to a larger or smaller space if my business requires me to?
Yes! Provided we have units available. If you are in need of something smaller, larger, or another unit, we can definitely work with you on your space needs.
What are your office hours?
Our office hours are Monday thru Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm. We are closed on all federal banking holidays.

Yes! We have boxes available for rent at $15.00 per month.

Is the HVAC system safe? Does it filter out germs like COVID and Influenza?
The building does not have an HVAC system that can spread germs through the building. Each unit is separate and has it's own heating and ventilation is only to the exterior.
Is the building safe and secure?
The building is under 24-hour camera surveillance with indoor and outdoor camera's. We keep the parking lot and the perimeter of the building well lit after hours. The building has a fire suppression sprinkler system throughout. An electronic access control system using key cards is used to authorize building access. Each individual tenant workspace has a steel door with a unique key.
