New coworking space to open in downtown Roanoke
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Downtown Roanoke will soon have its first coworking space called The Quarters.
“I think pre-COVID co-working was a way for small business owners to sort of come together and work in a common space to network and get all the benefits of being in an office. Post-COVID, we’ve seen really larger companies getting into co-working,” said Bill Chapman, the owner of The Quarters.
The 3,200-square-foot building has open space, personal offices, conference rooms, high-speed internet, printers and more. It gives a single person or an entire business all the resources of a traditional office.
“Most people who live downtown live in relatively small apartments. And so working out of a relatively small apartment five days a week and living there, it can be a bit much and it’s also isolating. This allows people to work in an office environment, be around others, meet people maybe that they wouldn’t meet in their regular network and create a sense of community.”
Chapman said they are excited to provide this opportunity to all who want to utilize it and in the future have the ability to expand.
The Quarters is accepting memberships and you can learn more by heading to the website linked at the beginning of the article. The building is at 351 Campbell Ave. SW and the grand opening date for the space is March 31.
