Since 2015, Syracuse CoWorks has provided desks and meeting rooms at the northeast corner of South Warren and East Jefferson streets. The following year, the organization opened the co-living Commonspace with 21 apartments.
In 2019, the organization invested $12 million in a project to update the original Syracuse CoWorks. Now, the construction works for the extension are completed. The co-living for young entrepreneurs has 59 new studio apartments and a new co-working space over 20,000 square feet in 349-351 S. Warren Street. In addition, 57 new micro-offices are available for small companies to rent, with flexible workspaces, a community kitchen, and six conference rooms.
Thanks to developers Troy Evans and Joe Sisko, the expansion was possible. As Sisko said: “We opened right at the start of Covid. It was a rough time to expand a co-working space. But over the last five months or so, things have really picked up. There’s been a huge surge to a…new form of normal, a lot of emphasis on hybrid working.”
New Co-living For Young Entrepreneurs
On August 26, the Commonspace will celebrate its first anniversary and expansion.
The membership in the co-working space ranges from $75 to $200/month, while private office rental starts at $500/month. The subscription includes Wi-Fi and coffee. In addition, access to sales training and business workshops is available. The rent for the co-living ranges from $1,100 to $3,000/month, and it’s sold out at the moment.
Finally, the expansion includes a fitness room, a chef’s kitchen, a library, and a game room.
The renters of the space are mainly marketing agencies, recruiting agencies, and entrepreneurs. Combining multiple activities, the co-working and co-living for young entrepreneurs is an excellent opportunity to network and grow your business.
