Choosing The Right Coworking Space
Coworking Office Location
They say location is the most important thing in real estate and, if you think about it, looking for a coworking space is kind of like looking for an apartment or a house. It’s a space you’re going to pay to use. So make sure you give location its due consideration during your coworking space search. Maybe you want to be in a big highrise. There are places for that. Maybe you want to be out in the burbs. There are options for that too. Hunt Street is in downtown Detroit, a few blocks outside the skyscrapers where there’s free parking and quick access to major thoroughfares and interstate highways. It’s more of a neighborhood feel with access to everything Detroit has to offer. Call us biased but we think that’s the perfect combination.
You’re going to spend a lot of time in your future coworking space so comfort and convenience are key. The more a coworking space includes in its fees or membership rates, the less surprises you’ll have and the less you’ll feel nickel and dimed. Is WiFi included? Will you have access to printers and scanners? What about quiet phone call rooms or booths? There are all great questions to ask coworking space managers as you consider your options. Hunt Street includes all of these things along with a long list of other great features. We host weekly Yoga and Fitness classes, invite informative speakers, offer free coffee and tea, and some of our memberships include free conference room time.
Coworking Office Style
Another important factor to consider is the atmosphere of your coworking environment. Not only will it have an effect on your daily mood, but if you plan to bring clients or business partners in for meetings, you want to create the right impression. Do you want a space that buzzes with energy or do you want more of a calm, quiet space? Every coworking environment is different. Some offices have a high powered, glossy aesthetic with polished concrete floors and glass walls. Others offer more of a bland, white, corporate feel, illuminated by fluorescent bulbs. Hunt Street Station combines the professionalism of a corporate office with the warmth of home. Exposed brick walls and rich, warm wood-work combine with terrazzo floors and copious natural light to create a unique space where you can feel the history of Detroit with the conveniences of the 21st century.
Type of Coworking Community
Something many overlook while selecting a coworking space is the nature of the community that works there. A coworking space can offer more than a desk and a chair. It can also offer a dynamic community of professionals, living and working alongside each other. Many people meet valuable business contacts in a coworking space. Many more develop long-lasting friendships. Hunt Street Station was created to offer a rich community environment where members could network and build strong relationships, not just within our walls, but in the broader Detroit community. In addition to social events, we also provide enriching volunteer opportunities so that we can give back to the neighborhood where we spend so much of our time.
