Megan Allen Tsui, Executive Director of the Northfield Enterprise Center, announced on the Northfield Coworking blog yesterday (Spur has a home) that they’d signed a lease for 1,400 sq. ft. of space above Dance N’ Fitness and Jenkin’s Jewelers at 313 1/2 Division St. Opening will be in early July.
Among the pluses, according to Megan: high ceilings, wood floors, entrance on Division, street level entrance off of the 5th Street parking lots, handicapped accessible.
And about the name, Spur Coworking? (Does it have a hyphen or not?) Megan wrote on Nfld Patch a couple weeks ago:
Spur can stand for several things- sure, it’s what cowboys wear to make their horses (or businesses?) go faster, but it is also a verb that means "to accelerate." We hope that it is a good descriptor of what we hope coworking does for our community.
I’m guessing (hoping?) that the name "The Spur" will catch on, for example, "It’s too noisy at the Blue Monday at that hour. Let’s meet at the Spur instead."
No word yet on membership rates or how the space will be configured and furnished.
