New Office Space Concept Coming To Chattanooga

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Entrepreneurs, freelancers and project teams in the Tennessee Valley will soon have a new place to craft their ideas and economically ignite their businesses. E|SPACES, a Nashville-based company, is expanding to Chattanooga and introducing a modern, innovative and unique office and meeting space concept.

E|SPACES is currently completing major renovations of a 7,800-square-foot floor within University Tower, which is downtown near the business district and the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

“Chattanooga’s entrepreneur scene and embrace of the gig made it a natural next step for us as we looked to expand, and the city is a perfect fit for our office and meeting space model for executives and mobile business professionals,” said Jon Pirtle, CEO of E|SPACES. “Entrepreneurs, small businesses and freelancers are able to reduce overhead costs associated with full-time management staffing and other expenses while still having a professional setting to host clients as well as the essentials they need to work. Our model in the Nashville area is also used by other large companies, such as Nissan and Bridgestone, for dedicated project team space and off-site meetings.”

A full-time office manager addresses business needs at E|SPACES including mail service, reception, concierge and IT. Office amenities include free parking, unlimited black and white printing, 100 pages of color printing per month, HDMI, video conferencing, flat screen displays, complimentary refreshments, mailbox with email notification service, conference phones, high speed secure WiFi and 24/7/365 access. The facility regularly hosts networking and complimentary after-hours events for members.

“All business essentials are included in our memberships, but what really sets us apart is our professional and vibrant work environment,” said Mr. Pirtle. “We’ve taken a lot of care in the renovation of this space to afford maximum natural light, create modern work spaces and outfit community spaces with acoustic control. Our clients come to us for the space and stay for the community. It’s a ‘coffee shop meets executive suite’ experience.”

Officials said month-to-month and flexible membership plans are available at different levels including community space, private offices and single meeting rooms. Meeting space pricing begins at $30 per hour. Work space pricing begins at $500 per month.

Included in E|SPACES membership is access to at any of the company’s facilities. Two Nashville locations—Belle Meade and Cool Springs—are currently available, and future facilities are planned for Orlando, downtown Franklin and other cities across the country.

Located at 651 E. 4th St., E|SPACES is in close proximity to a wide variety of restaurants, banking and shopping options in downtown Chattanooga, it was stated. In addition to free parking, E|SPACES also provides members and their clients with ground-floor access to the facility.

The facility will host a public open house on May 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. E|SPACES is offering a 20 percent discount to those who sign up for space rental during the open house or on opening day, which is planned for June 1.
