Just the FAQs, please
WHAT IS COWORKING and…
WHY IS IT A GOOD FIT FOR ME?
A coworking office space is unlike traditional office spaces, where you pay not only rent but also for utilities and wifi. Top that with spending money on office furniture and business machines like printers/copiers/scanners. The list goes on and on. Our space includes furniture, a business center, fast WiFi, a bookable conference room, kitchenette, free coffee, and more for ONE monthly price. From our RiverWorks flex desks to our dedicated desks to private office memberships, rest assured your need for community, comfort, and privacy will be met!
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
You’ll see our happy, caffeinated faces bright and early at 8 am, and we’ll lock up at 5 pm. However, monthly members get 24/7 access to our space with your fob, which means there’s always an outlet for a 2 am stroke of genius. Day Pass users and visitors have access from 8 a.m to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
CAN I BRING MY PET?
Despite their powers of persuasion, Lassie and her furry friends need to stay behind. We HIGHLY encourage the sharing of dog (or cat) photos while you’re here.
CAN I DECORATE OR PERSONALIZE MY OFFICE?
Absolutely, we want you to make your office comfortable for you. Many clients bring printers, or artwork to decorate their offices. If you want your own furniture, we’ll move ours out to accommodate yours. We even allow you to hang things on the walls of your office! We just ask that the office be returned to the original condition prior to moving out.
IS A COWORKING AGREEMENT CONSIDERED A LEASE?
The short answer to that question is no. Coworking isn’t regulated by a state’s real estate commission, primarily because it doesn’t have the long contracts and significant upfront costs that often accompany traditional leases. For both a landlord and tenant, coworking space means far less risk than traditional office space, where if someone defaults on the agreement, they simply leave the space without a long, drawn-out legal process. This also means that tenants do not have to work with a licensed broker when searching, negotiating, and moving into flexible workspaces.
DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO A YEAR LONG CONTRACT?
We know that the business world changes fast, so we’re not interested in locking anyone into a claustrophobia-inducing contract. Work with us month-by-month for as long as you’d like— just give us a 30-day heads up before you decide to roll outta here — but you do get a nice little price break when you sign up for a whole year or longer. 🙂
SOUNDS LOVELY BUT… ISN’T THIS SUPER-EXPENSIVE?
It doesn’t have to be! We offer tiered memberships that are designed to fit each member’s specific needs. Packages range from just $20/day for a DAY PASS, $89-$175/month for a flex workspace or dedicated desk, to $225-$500/month for private offices. If you factor in all the additional charges you’d have for WiFi, cleaning services, office equipment, and furniture, coworking is a steal! And, unlike traditional office space, our private suites are priced on a sliding scale per person, not square footage alone.
WHEN ARE PAYMENTS DUE?
Payments are due on the 1st of every month. All memberships and payments will be prorated to the 1st of every month.

HOW DO I GET 24/7 ACCESS TO MY DESK?
Our members with dedicated desks and private offices under monthly memberships will have access at any time by using a fob provided by RiverWorks.
I TAKE A LOT OF PHONE CALLS. IS THAT GOING TO BE A PROBLEM?
Not at all. We are not a library, although we love libraries! Our space is optimized for phone calls, but if you need a little more privacy, book a day office or meeting room all to yourself.
CAN I SWITCH BETWEEN SPACES?
RiverWorks members can upgrade to any available workspace access for a prorated fee. If you want to switch out your current workspace to another available workspace at your current level, feel free! Inform our community manager beforehand and you are all set.
I NEED A SPACE FOR ALL OF MY MEETINGS, NOT JUST A DESK.
No problem! RiverWorks has a top-notch, presentation-equipped meeting room that can accommodate groups of 2 to 15 people. Rooms are bookable by the hour, half-day, or full-day and are open to the public. RiverWorks members automatically get free use of the conference room. Each level of membership has different amounts of free hours per month.
IF I’M A MEMBER, CAN I HAVE GUESTS?
We love making new friends! Guests are welcome to join you in any meeting space you’ve reserved, or they can meet with you in the common space for up to an hour. If you want to work together for more time, we can hook them up with a day pass (prices start at $20).
HOW’S THE PARKING FOR RIVERWORKS?
RiverWorks offers free parking on a first-come, first-serve basis. Get this…we have parking in front, behind, and across the street for our members and visitors.
