Coworking office The Lodge will take over the old Moose Lodge in downtown Edwardsville, Illinois.
The new space allows entrepreneurs, freelancers, and professionals to have a private working area as well as an open space that allows them to network and collaborate.
Owner Jay Beard said that he wanted a space in the area that was walkable and affordable to those who normally couldn’t afford a downtown office space.
Members will have 24-hour access, a cafe with beer and coffee, a copy machine, a lounge, a meditation/quiet room and more.
“We tried to put everything you could possibly want if you working from or in an office,” said Beard. “But the biggest thing we would like to see is people networking, communication and building those relationships and connections.”
