The Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance has announced the creation of a new “co-working space” in downtown Ticonderoga. A co-working space is a shared office space that can be used by anyone who needs a professional place to work. These workspaces have become popular throughout the country as remote working and the gig economy have changed the nature of conventional workplaces. Similar spaces exist in Saranac Lake, Glens Falls, Saratoga, and Lake Placid.
This new space will be called Ti-Works, and will be located at 174 Lake George Avenue. People who might want to use the space include remote workers who want to go to an office with others, vacationers who need a quiet place to work for a few days or a week, business visitors who need Internet access or a printer for the day, or groups in need of a conference room for a meeting.
The space includes three private cubicles, each furnished with a large desk and office chair, a conference room with seating for 10 people, two additional desks, and some common space. Users will have access to a color printer/scanner, kitchenette with refrigerator, coffeemaker, microwave, broadband Internet service, and an ADA accessible bathroom. There is also excellent cell phone reception for all carriers from anywhere in the space.
Pricing is designed to fit a variety of work needs. Private dedicated cubicles are available on a monthly basis ($200/month) or weekly basis ($60/week). Monthly memberships are also available for those who want to access on a drop-in basis and don’t need a dedicated space ($125/month). Single-day access is available for just $15/day.
“Ti-Works will be an enterprising and energetic place for people to work and meet in Ticonderoga”, said Ti-Alliance’s Executive Director Donna Wotton. “It’s in a perfect location in downtown Ti with walking access to everything and easy parking. There’s a changing energy in our downtown and this type of resource fits right in with the type of new workers that we need to support and are hoping to attract.”
Ti-Works will open for business beginning Monday, April 6. For more information, to purchase a plan, or to take a tour, contact Donna Wotton at firstname.lastname@example.org, 415-385-4544. Ti-Works is a joint venture between the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance and Mary Sears Mazzotte (building owner). The general public is invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, April 23 at 4:00 pm at 174 Lake George Avenue, Ticonderoga.
