A new coworking space recently opened in a restored Victorian building in the West Fourth Street Historic District. Read on for a peek inside.
Novel Coworking recently debuted its new private offices, office suits, and coworking space here in Cincinnati. The business, owned by Bill Bennett, has locations throughout the country, with Cincinnati being its first location in Ohio.
Novel’s history dates back to 2007, when Bennett was looking for a space to open up his first business in. While searching for office space, he ran into difficulties because he wasn’t able to commit to a 3-5 year lease.
“I didn’t know yet whether I was going to have one employee or 100, and I didn’t want to start a construction project or make a long-term commitment,” says Bennett.
Ten years later Bennett is the owner of a business that supports companies of all sizes with flexibility and room to scale up and grow on their own terms – Novel Coworking.
The company purchases the buildings it operates out of, which allows it to invest in infrastructure improvements as well as custom-built suites for teams of up to 100 people while also keeping rents 30-50% lower than its competitors.
Pricing at Novel Coworking starts at $99 a month for coworking memberships and at $475 a month for private offices.
“Novel Coworking provides small businesses and entrepreneurs with high-caliber amenities that are typically only available to large companies,” Novel’s website states.
Novel Coworking in Cincinnati is located in the Hooper Building, at 151 West 4th Street.
“We are excited to support Cincinnati’s entrepreneurial community with beautiful, affordable space to grow their businesses,” says Bennett. “We have seen huge demand for flexible, customizable workspace from small to mid-sized businesses, as well as enterprise companies.”
