By GILLIAN SHAW

Coworking and hotdesking are growing trends with companies and individuals who are abandoning high-priced real estate in favour of more practical – and less pricey –  workspace solutions.

With inner city Vancouver home to many independent tech and creative entrepreneurs, it’s a natural for the newly opened coworking@BOB space, a shared work space created by Building Opportunities with Business, a non-profit aimed at supporting business development and job opportunities in the neighborhood.

High-ceiling, spacious and located on the main floor of a building at 163 East Pender St., the shared open space gives tenants desk space, along with chairs, tables, couches and other furnishings that distinguish it from a less inviting cubicle haven. Art on the walls from Vancouver’s Grace Gallery will be rotated regularly.

“We hope that this open shared work space can contribute to the revitalization of the inner-city by providing a space for creative professionals to flourish, for ideas to percolate, to cross pollinate, for businesses to grow, a place where stuff gets done,” reads BOB’s announcement of the new space.

Wi-Fi, a fridge, microwave, filtered water cooler and secure bike storage round out the offerings that come at a flat rate of $200 a month with keyless access to the building.

    I gotta lose weight and stop looking silly in photos. That is a good picture from the top of the stairs. We’re actually getting more furniture delivered today, but because of the Olympic art installation it will basically just go in storage.

    We did get the grant to improve the wheel chair accessiability. The front door is fine, though the couch actually might be in the way. The improvements will be to the washrooms at the back, making that route simpler and with no ramp.
