Union Workstation: A Great Shared Office Space in Downtown Toronto
Union Workstation is the name of the shared workspace where our company is located. Located in Toronto at 144 Front Street West, suite 655 (a few steps west of University Avenue), it’s a block away from Union Station (hence the name), a short walk away from the Financial District and the PATH and right in the heart of downtown. It’s a great space in a great location, and it’s too big for just us. That’s why we decided to share!
If you’re looking for some prime downtown office space but can’t afford the area, Union Workstation might be right for you. We’re looking for people or organizations to rent out our four office rooms and build an enjoyable workplace with great neighbours, and we’d like to do so as soon as possible. If you’re interested in taking a look, contact Joey deVilla at (647) 985-5639 or email him at email@example.com.
And now, the tour!
Union Workstation is located an old factory/warehouse that’s been nicely renovated. Most of the offices within have some exposed brick walls and wooden beams, and the owners have taken great care to spruce up the hallways, as you can see below:
…and the bathrooms as well:
The owners are also in the process of installing a new cooling tower in order to improve the building’s air conditioning.
Here’s Union Workstation’s floor plan. Our company will take the spaces marked “CTS”, namely the open space just past the lobby and the small office in the southwest corner. The other four offices, named for local streets and subway stations, are available for rent:
The rental rates for each of the rooms are as follows:
|Simcoe||125 sq. ft.||$1199|
|St. Andrew||203 sq. ft.||$1599|
|Union||228 sq. ft.||$1799|
|King||246 sq. ft.||$1999|
We’re also offering individual desks at $500/month. These rates include Beanfield’s 100meg internet service and cleaning staff.
Here’s a quick tour of Union Workstation, featuring photos taken when we moved in:
That’s right, Union Workstation has a shower! It’s perfect for bike commuters.
We’ve had great luck so far with this place — not just with finding it, but also with furnishing it. Our friends at Axiom Metrics were moving offices and had a lot of desks, cubicles and tables that they needed to get rid of in very short order, for free!
We have a number of nice executive-grade desks and bookshelves that can be reconfigured in a number of ways. They’re available to Union Workstation tenants on a first-come first-served basis — the sooner you sign up, the better your selection will be!
We also have a large set of cubicles. After doing a little work, we found a way to take these soulless veal-fattening pens and “furniture hack” them into handy-dandy desks with built-in pinboards, like the one shown below.
Last but not least, we also got Axiom Metrics’ old air hockey table! If you set up shop here, you can use it to uniwind.
Additional improvements to the place will be made over the coming weeks, but the best thing we can put into our shared office space is you!
