Officebroker.com is rebranding as Officio to move away from the broker model and aid clients in finding long-term solutions, rather than completing short-term goals.
Firmspace merges coworking spaces with the luxury of privacy
The coworking space market is clearly on the uprise, but for those who seek a little more privacy and seclusion, it can be difficult to find a coworking space that fits their work style.
Austin-based office operator Firmspace is tackling this issue head on. Within their first location in Denver, members can expect to find high ceilings and natural lighting that give the space a modern touch. The majority of Firmspace’s members are attorneys who require privacy.
Clients pay a monthly $750 fee that takes care of a private office, concierge services, the building’s gym, and twice-weekly meals.
“Just in case we had members who were opposing counsel, we needed sound-masking technology in the offices and conference rooms,” says Firmspace’s marketing director Sarah Newson. “We don’t do ‘hot desking’ or rent out chairs; we only offer private offices or suites. Everything we’ve done is with privacy and security in mind.”
