Can’t go back to the office because the pandemic caused it to shut down, but can’t work from home along with your spouse, kids, or crazy cats? We hear ya! You don’t have to huddle in the laundry room or lock yourself in the bathroom for a bit of peace!

We’re all looking for small ways to save our sanity right now, be it through health and wellness activities, home improvement projects or various forms of virtual socializing. One area we can help with: providing a productive work environment. An escape to the Coworking Space at Bridgeworks Enterprise Center may be exactly what you need to experience a “normal” work day again. Located in South Allentown in a former Mack Trucks building, the Coworking Space was originally designed for professionals who need a place to get work done that also enables them to meet with colleagues and clients.

Started in the late 1990s, our coworking area is mixed into our Flex Office space to create a productive environment for you to be successful. It includes:

  • Monday – Friday access from 8 am – 5 pm.
  • Fiber optic broadband internet (both private and public networks)
  • Shared office machine (print/copy)
  • Two “phone booths” to take a call without disturbing your team (or anyone else around you)
  • Two conference rooms available for use (10 person and 25 person)
  • Kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, full-sized refrigerator, and dining area
  • Lounge area for casual meetings or a quick break

Our coworking plan is easy: a desk is $60 per month and includes unlimited use of shared desk space as well as access to all these amenities. As we like to say, it’s this simple: Sit down. Connect. Get to work.

Coworker Gary Schall knows that’s true. He runs a consulting business that helps individuals and companies get connected by improving their LinkedIn and networking skills. While he doesn’t need a big office, he learned early on that he did need a professional space to meet with clients because coffee houses and restaurants didn’t cut it.

“The Coworking Space at Bridgeworks Enterprise Center is perfect for my needs,” says Schall. “I can hold workshops with just a few people or a larger group in the conference rooms. It has allowed me to present a higher level of professionalism, and given me the opportunity to experiment with various networking methods. I’ve been using the co-working space for close to 5 years now, and look forward to many more years in an excellently run facility.”

We have staff available to help during standard operating hours, and our facilities team has sanitization procedures in place to keep the building clean and our occupants safe. If you have questions regarding our COVID-19 policies and procedures, we would be happy to address them by phone, email, or during a facility tour.

Want to give coworking a try? Come in and see what you think for a day or two, free of charge.  If you love it as much as we know you will, you can sign up before heading out.  Contact David Dunn – ddunn@allentownedc.com or call 610-435-8890.
