TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Co-working spaces are growing in popularity and now one local business owner is helping others get back to work in a new way. It’s a new look for an old space, Krystal Popov with the L Offices in downtown Tucson says she recently finished some renovations in her 13,000 square foot space.
The goal is to make it more attractive to small business owners who want the amenities of a bigger company. The change includes unique ways to entertain clients and event space that will eventually hold up to 75 people. Right now, COVID-19 guidelines are in place.
"They can grab their latte in the morning work for a few hours, jump in our gym where we have classes for members. Then maybe work more in the afternoon play 9 rounds on our golf simulator grab a beer on tap and be done for the day,” Popov said.
According to Popov the idea for the space was sparked after a trip to Chicago.
“I graduated from U of A, but when I went to Chicago, I realized that co-working space is normal there and you walk around and meet different ones and find your flair,” Popov said.
Memberships start at $149 a month and that gives you access to a reserved desk or office space, a gym, free internet, discounts at local restaurants and more.
“Ten 55 Brewery is supplying beer on tap for our members. We have 16 private offices, and we have room right now for 15 co-working slots. We would love to have a chiropractor or massage therapist acupuncturist to be in our wellness area. We have employees now that just need a space to get out of their house in a safe way,” Popov said.
