8/15/2020 Covid Office Sublet Information

Hi! My name is Alanna (rhymes with banana) and this is the office for the business we were going to open in March. Our plans have been postponed to say the least!

We've had a number of people contact us "9999" or "gggg"looking for desks to rent just for a couple of days a week.

If we don't get a taker for the whole space by the end of the month, we'll consider offering safe office time-sharing with 12 ft.+ between parties always and two separate entrances...

At present, we are still looking for one renter for the whole office for $1800 for six months (till next February or March) when we hope to start up again. The breakdown is rent + cost of internet & water. The time-line is somewhat flexible.

Now about the space and the pictures above. . .The "executive office" has an L-shaped desk, two monitors, and two smaller desks (the grey one in the far corner window) but also there is another cubby and desk area not pictured. Technically three people who have been quarantining together could work in the room -- it is large enough to seat 15 people in a presentation style set- up with chairs just to give you an idea of size. There's a lot of open carpet in this room.

The writing room has 7 desk spaces, a printer, mini fridge, snack counter, water, etc. . .

I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but the office is full of windows that can be left open if you are scared of your own germs or of the germs of children you decide to bring to the office once you realize you can lock them in the other room!

Lastly, there is a heavy door that divides the two spaces and does a good job providing privacy.

Security deposit: $2500

Please email me at alannalin@gmail.com if you'd like to be kept in the loop should we decide on a day rental offering. I imagine it will be roughly $300 / month for a couple of days a week with a dedicated desk that no one else uses. . .

Flexible in a time of Covid--

Thanks so much!
