QOworking — a new coworking and maker space in Brooklyn

image

QOworking is a new coworking and maker space now open in Brooklyn, with:

  • dedicated desks ($300/mo) and drop-in spaces ($150/mo unlimited dropins),
  • plenty of space outside of your desk to work on projects,
  • ample storage space,
  • super-fast (50-100Mbps) internet,
  • free use of our wireless printer
  • free coffee and tea
  • month-to-month memberships, and
  • 24/7 access

If you’ve been looking around for an affordable space to work in a great environment with awesome people, this could be the space for you.

QOworking is located in the old Pfizer building in Brooklyn at the intersection of Williamsburg, Bed-Stuy and Bushwick (630 Flushing Ave. — Flushing G and Flushing J,M stops). The building dates from the 1850s when Pfizer first began producing citric acid in large quantities. Though an odd looking building from the outside, it’s now home to some of the most innovative food producers in Brooklyn.

QOworking shares our floor – the 8th and top floor – with several prominent food companies, such as Mille-Feuille bakery (selling cheap, amazing pastries!), McClure’s pickles, Mama O’s kimchi, and Delaney Barbeque. Our perch on the 8th floor also affords us some stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn, which provide constant inspiration for our members.

Our current members also inspire through their work and their awesomeness. They include an open technology for science, GIS, and urban planning guru (Liz Barry, Public Lab), two fantastic open source hardware makers (Joel Murphy and Leif Percifield), and two experts in mapping and data visualization (Lela Prashad and JD Godchaux). While we have a hardware, science and data viz focus in QO currently, we’re very open to cross-pollination with folks in other fields. Plus we’re all just really nice people, so there’s that as well.

If you’re interested, please fill out our quick form and let us know of your interest. Thanks!
