Private Office Space


A private office works just like an office in any other facility. Private office tenants have 24/7 access to their own, lockable office space. Our office prices start at $900 per month plus $130/month for Shared Amenities.

Private office tenants are entitled to 10 hours per month of free meeting space.



Private Desk Space



A private desk is suitable for individuals and organizations that do not have the budget or need for a dedicated office space. A private desk space gives you your own, dedicated desk in an open office area, and includes a chair, desk and lockable filing spaces. Our private desk spaces rent for $400/month plus $65/month Shared Amenities.

Private desk spaces tenants are entitled to 10 hours per month of free meeting space.
