CoWork Jax announces downtown coworking space location

CoWork Jax is pleased to announce the intended location of its new space in Downtown Jacksonville. CoWork Jax plans to move to the second floor of historic 5 W. Forsyth St., above Perdue, Inc.

Built in 1916, the century old property at 5 W. Forsyth St. overlooks the Main Street Bridge and is located in the heart of Downtown, with several popular restaurants and entertainment venues within walking distance. CoWork Jax partner, “We’re very excited to at the prospect of having the cowork space upstairs, said Vince McCormack, President of Perdue, Inc. “We believe this move will bring energy and innovation to our building and the Forsyth Street corridor.” Street parking and a nearby garage offer coworkers a variety of parking options, and is convenient to several major arteries in and out of Downtown. Coworkers will also be able to take advantage of the nearby riverwalk and Main Street Park.

The coworking concept offers space for entrepreneurs, freelancers and small companies to work in a professional, creative environment and meet others like themselves.

CoWork Jax plans to offer memberships that allow individuals or small companies to utilize workspaces for the day or for an extended period of time. The company will also offer small office spaces, as well as conference rooms with HD web conferencing and whiteboards, along with a host of collaboration specific areas developed by Turnstone and Steelcase furniture.

In February and March of this year, CoWork Jax partnered with Downtown Vision, Inc. to hold a pilot coworking event in the AT&T Tower 301 building in downtown Jacksonville to demonstrate the need for such a space in the local market. The event was a great success, opening the door for CoWork Jax to seek a permanent home downtown.

“We’re thankful for our supporters in this venture, especially Perdue, PETRA Management and Downtown Vision. Jacksonville is full of talented entrepreneurs and innovators. Downtown is a great place to bring that passion and energy together in a vibrant core,” said Elton Rivas, co-founder of Zero Confines and CoWork Jax. “We are excited to provide a shared workspace for freelancers and small businesses to grow and believe the impact could be exponential in nature.”

CoWork Jax plans to announce membership and pricing information information in the coming weeks, along with an opening date. Visit www.CoWorkJax.com to get the latest information on this new venture.
