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 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.
