Freelancers, entrepreneurs and remote workers now can now enjoy a shared professional coworking space in the heart of downtown Aurora, IL.
Coworking is a worldwide trend of freelancers, remote workers, startups and independent professionals working in shared work spaces as an alternative to renting their own office or working from home. It keeps expenses low while still providing a professional work environment.
Coworking gets people people out of the distractions of their home or neighborhood coffee shop, and into an environment that provides opportunity for collaboration, inspiration and supportive community.
There are nearly a hundred coworking spaces in Chicago but still only a handfull outside of the city.
Metropolitan Coworking is the first shared office space of it’s kind in Aurora.
It is centrally located in the heart of historic downtown Aurora, IL on Stolp Island in the Fox River. For all we know, it may be the only coworking space on an island in the United States!
The workspace is beautiful with hardwood floors throughout, exposed brick walls, high ceilings and big windows that provide natural light throughout the day. The walls are decorated with new artwork each month provided by Emergent Gallery.
There are reserved desks up front for people who want to work in the same space each day. In the coworking room is an open shared workspace with tables and desks throughout. Just find a good spot, open your laptop and get to work.
You might get a spot with a river view and if weather permits, step outside onto the patio overlooking the Fox River.
Metropolitan also has a conference room and an open space well suited for events. It can host business meetings, seminars, community groups or even a birthday party. There’s a kitchen and two restrooms available. Outside is on street parking and there’s a parking garage one block away.
Lively downtown location
Downtown Aurora, IL has much to offer: historic architecture, riverfront scenery, family owned businesses, restaurants, theaters, museums, festivals, art, live music and more.
Now anyone can afford a shared office space in the heart of it all.
I would recommend solopreneurs and consultants give coworking a try. I am a coworking advocate and I love working at Metropolitan because of it’s friendly community and prime downtown location. I get to work downtown in the city I love surround by art, culture and friends.
Even though I have the option to work at home, working at Metropolitan Coworking provides me inspiration and happiness. Wouldn’t you like your workplace to do that too?
