Ampersand Coworking nears opening date

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Ampersand Coworking is the newest addition in downtown Marquette, set to open on February 1st of this year.

The Marquette Chamber of Commerce plans to rent out the rooms to any business professionals looking for a space of their own.

Prices start at $75 per month, allowing for six uses.

If you need more, there's also 24/7 access with all utilities and furnishings included, like an electric motor standing desk.

Though the concept of a shared working space is nothing new, the Marquette Chamber of Commerce says they hope the addition will improve community growth.

"If our community had a business coming in with 100 employees making $50,000 a year, we would bend over backwards for that company to make sure that we get those jobs," said Jason Schneider, Executive Director of the Marquette Chamber of Commerce. "But we have over 100 people making really good money in this town and a lot of them work from home. So we want to be able to bring those types of people and the traditional businesses together in a workspace like this to build our community."

In addition to private offices and conference rooms, the shared building includes a community and presentation space for about 60 people.

If you're interested in renting out the space, you can contact the Marquette Chamber of Commerce at (906) 225-1693.
