Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
It's official! April 1 & EastSide OffiCenter is open for business. The coffee is hot, the wine is cold and Will and I are ready to show off our newest space. This is a new concept for us in the East Metro. We are in a smaller building where the rent is affordable and we can pass the amazing savings on to businesses in the area. We have some new offices called, "The Stables", that go for an all-in price of $399 per month. And that includes a sit/stand work desk! No fooling! If you or someone you know needs a workspace in Woodbury, give me a call (651-212-7111) and I will personally give them a tour.
 
Will has been promoted to Community Manager for the Woodbury location and he will be there every day to help our community while still coordinating our social media. If you would like to take a tour, we are giving a $25 lunch card to anyone who comes to visit me for the rest of this week. Also, the month of April is double referral month (AGAIN!) for anyone who sends us a new member for coworking or full-time space at EastSide OffiCenter. My thanks to everyone on my team who made this project happen, especially Amanda, who is invaluable to me.
 
We are planning for our Grand Opening and ribbon cutting sometime in May and will let you know in plenty of time to mark your calendars. In the meantime, while I am writing this, there are pictures to hang and meeting rooms to decorate, so I need to motor scooter and get stuff done! See you on the EastSide!

In the Spotlight
A Toast to the East Metro! 

Our management team got its first look at our newest center in Woodbury during our meeting last week. They toured the new space and familiarized themselves with the area. Yes! St. Paul and the East Metro are foreign territory to a few, but not to our owner Lori Spiess, who was excited about her five minute commute at the end of the day. Lori shared, "I have worked in the Western Suburbs for most of my career! Who knew working close to home would be so exciting! The only negative about my five minute commute is that my sister Lea only has a two minute commute." My, how these ladies love a rivalry!

Present for the meeting was Community Manager Casey (Park), along with Center Managers Tina (Int'l Plaza), Jill (France) and Jan (Minnetonka - ok she had a hike to get over there!) as well as our Operations Manager Ana, Director of Sales Lisa and  our Controller Lea. Co-Hosting the event with Lori was our Project Manager Amanda and our newest Community Manager at Eastside OffiCenter, Will. They celebrated with Savoy Pizza, an East Side treasure, and a cheers!
