Spaces Newbury Street recently opened on February 13 as a collaborative workspace for Boston entrepreneurs and innovators. The new innovative office space will be situated on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Newbury Street, only blocks away from the proposed air rights residential and office buildings that will soon span over the highway.
Located at 359 Newbury Street, the 5,000 square foot space will occupy the top three floors and will feature flexible communal workspace and co-working memberships, over 90 private offices, and four meeting rooms available to members and community residents.
The new office space will be located above the retail store Urban Outfitters and across the street from T.J. Maxx, and only a block away from the Green Line Hynes Convention T stop.
Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workspaces that has 30 locations in the Boston area, is excited to be opening up this new space on Newbury Street.
“With dozens of universities and colleges and a burgeoning start-up scene, the demand for co-working space is strong in the Boston market as entrepreneurs, freelancers and business leaders seek workspace that will help them be both productive and inspired,” wrote Michael Berretta the vice president of Network Development at Regus.
He continued, “Newbury Street is the heart of Boston and a natural fit for Spaces’ debut in the city since it will put our members in the center of a thriving community – not to mention the city’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.”
Regus recently launched the Spaces brand to answer the demands of clients who were seeking more co-working space, but in a professional environment.
Spaces workspaces are designed to integrate lifestyle into work and offer concierge-level hospitality services and regularly scheduled networking and learning events for members and community residents.
“Our focus is on offering a sense of community and inspiring collaboration and connections amongst our members,” wrote Berretta through e-mail. “We’re not just providing a place for Boston businesses and entrepreneurs to ‘set up shop’, we’re also providing a network of like-minded individuals.”
Communal workspace and co-working memberships begin at $350 per month and the private offices are starting at $750 per month. Concierge-level hospitably services such as on-demand dry cleaning, IT support, floral services and more will also be available.
Spaces Newbury Street won’t have a dedicated lot or garage for employees to park, but pointed to the nearby public parking lots available, including one that is across the street.
Berretta wrote, “We’re excited about Boston’s vibrant tech and start-up scene and think that Spaces Newbury Street will attract a lot of these businesses and individuals. Boston is an incredibly diverse city when it comes to industries, so we’re expecting members from industries ranging from fashion and design to teach and finance.”
