South Philadelphia Co-Op Workshop: see East Passyunk’s first coworking space [PHOTOS]

The South Philadelphia Co-Op Workshop is calling itself the first coworking space in that part of the city, and it’s now open for business in what was formerly a corner grocer. The conversation around colocation has gotten hot locally this year.

From the Passyunk Post (which has more pictures too):

Co-founders Ian Toner, an architect from the hood who will work full time there, and Terence Buckley, a bookkeeper who will pop by occasionally, sunk about $7,000 into sprucing up the rented storefront. The tables, storage shelves and kitchen counter were made out of wood reclaimed from a relative’s barn. They will also install a keypad so members can access the space 24/7. The website is still an early version, but it lists these rates: $300/month for full-time use; $200/month for three days a week; $85/month for one day a week; $25/day drop-in rate. The rates are month-to-month, so no lease, and there’s no deposit. Toner said they’ve gotten interest from about 10 people, though all were waiting for the final approvals to commit. MORE
