RUTLAND’S NEWEST CO-WORKING SPACE OFFICIALLY OPENS
Whether you are a remote worker, plan to be one, need a small space for an office, or a room for meetings, The Hub CoWorks may be the place for you.
Rutland’s newest co-working space, in the heart of historic downtown, offers hot desks (unassigned seating), private desks, and private office options throughout its 24,000 square feet (about four times the area of a basketball court). In addition, there are shared areas, private call and zoom rooms, conference spaces, and a self-serve café. Membership plans include everything from half-day passes to varying monthly passes.
This week, The Hub CoWorks officially opened, and the space was brought to life with creative and positive energy. One journalist wrote, “For this former Manhattanite to compare the buzz of anticipation in the 24,000-square-foot office space to that of a Times Square crowd on New Year’s Eve is not hyperbole. The launch of The Hub, a public-private partnership between CEDRR (Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region) and MKF Properties, is momentous.” Read her full article here.
One room features a virtual reality lab. Jeff DeJarnette is the owner of Tacitly LLC, a virtual reality startup focusing on the healthcare industry. He is currently creating a virtual crash cart (a mobile shelving unit with supplies needed in an emergency) with Rutland Regional Medical Center (RRMC). This way newly hired and traveling nurses can train how to use the RRMC-specific cart without taking another nurse off the floor. To learn more, read this article in the Rutland Herald, Rutland’s local newspaper. Speaking of technology, a podcast studio will also be installed soon.
The facility does not have food and drinks made on-site because we encourage everyone using The Hub CoWorks to visit locally established restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and bars. The self-serve café does have water and coffee machines available for free use.
Since its opening, people have already begun working in The Hub CoWorks and each day tours are given to interested folks. If you think you could see yourself working in this co-working space and would like more information, please reach out to Lyle Jepson, Executive Director of CEDRR. His email is email@example.com and his phone number is 802-773-2748.
