A few months ago I blogged about some of my favorite spots in the Triangle for working remotely. The response was amazing! Turns out a lot of you are looking for spots to be productive during the workday. I also received some good tips on spots I was missing out on, so I’m happy to bring you part 2 of this hot topic. While I can’t give my personal take the spots below, I’d love to hear from you. Do you use these spaces? Did I miss a hidden gem in your slice of the Triangle?
Youthworx on Main, 117 North Main Street, Carrboro
If you are a youth-centered non-profit, this is your spot. Youthworx is a co-working and collaboration space sponsored by the PTA Thrift Shop in Carrboro. Unlike other co-working spaces, Youthworx members share one focus: impacting the underserved youth of their community. Their focused collaboration and teamwork approach means more gets done. What an awesome idea!
Coworking Station, 104 West Ballentine Street, Holly Springs
From open workspace to office suites, the co-working station has all you need if you are in the Apex/Holly Springs area. With a 5 day pass for only $80, it is very affordable. Some great member perks include designated mailboxes, fast internet, free print, copy, fax, and free beverages. The best news is that they’re expanded soon: to The Block on Main on Main Street Holly Springs in 2019, downtown Apex, and Walpole, Massachusetts (a suburb of Boston).
Fuquay co-working, 1000 North Main St. Suite 102, Fuquay
If you live in the southern part of Wake like myself you may not want to trek to Raleigh or Durham to knock out your workday. The Fuquay co-working space is the perfect spot with lots of options: you can be a nomad or reserve a dedicated office suite. With prices as low as $25 a day, you can’t beat it. Unique amenities include product photography, a game room, member organized events in addition to free printing, copying scanning, fast internet, creative design and legal services on site.
Regus Cary, Chapel Hill, Raleigh
This international co-working chain with locations all over the Triangle offers options from open co-working spaces to office suites. The best thing for remote workers is that actually offer a per hour space rental which seems to be unique to Regus. In addition to the per hour rental Regus offers networking and the ability to work at any Regus location at no extra cost. No specific pricing on the website, but they did offer starting prices as low as $7 (I’m assuming this is per day).
wework, 1 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh
Head to their webpage to sign up for updates on when their space will be complete. They’ll offer super-fast internet, private phone booths, 24/7 building access, bike storage in addition to free coffee and fresh fruit. wework is an international co-working chain with office all over the US and the world. To be so big, they must be doing something right and I can’t wait to check this new space out!
