As guests of yesterday’s Net Tuesday event or last month’s Social Media Club Vancouver panel will have noted, the gorgeous coworking gallery at BOB is open for business once again and looking for hot-desking cultural creative nomads in search of a home.
The space is enormous, and includes:
- 15′ ceilings and art-ready walls and display cabinets (got some paintings you want to hang? talk to us)
- keyless, secure entry
- secure bike storage
- access from 9am till very, very late (ie whenever I go home, which is generally not before 6am)
- large kitchen area with microwave, fridge and freezer
- private lockers
- robust wireless
- a funky polished concrete floor
- hot and cold filtered water thanks to Wa2
- projector and smartboard
- cleaning service
- rosewood desks and cushy ergonomic chairs
- a social lounge area with a sofa, armchairs and an extensive window seat
- two washrooms, one handicapped-accessible
- space for (at maximum) 25 creative ninjas to work at any given time
- in the heart of Chinatown and just blocks from Gastown
- handy to Skytrain, buses and excellent pubs and restaurants
- literally next door to a Waves cafe, if you’re already addicted to their coffee!
And, of course, the fabulous company of your peers. And me.
This is what the coworking gallery looked like during the Cultural Olympiad, when we had an exhibition by the sound sculptor Trimpin.
If you’re a recovering or current civil servant and prefer PDFs to all other forms of communication, here’s our downloadable flyer. In fact, why don’t you print out a couple of dozen and pass them out? No? Okay, maybe just one for the staffroom corkboard?
How much will this glorious work environment set you back? Only $200 a month, less than half of what Workspace used to charge. Half-month trials are also available, for $100. If you’ve got a small company and need multiple desk spaces, we can work something out. And we are available for special event bookings, subject to availability and usage. Talk to us.
We’re looking for do-gooders, writers, tech workers, SOHO ninjas and all variety of interesting, creative people who are looking for something more copacetic than a cafe, more professional than the dining room table. Give us a call at 778-328-7664 or email raincoaster at gmail dot com and we can show you around.
Here we are a few months ago, under construction:
