Commerce City Welcomes First Collaborative Office Space officespace2
The Office Share at Belle Creek, Commerce City's first co-working space, recently celebrated its grand opening. "As a community where more than 70 percent of our business community is considered small business, fostering innovation is a critical component to ensuring economic growth and prosperity," said Councilman Jason McEldowney. 

Located at 10754 Belle Creek Boulevard, #109, The Office Share features an all-inclusive and cost effective way for small businesses and entrepreneurs to have a professional presence without large overhead costs. "The Office Share is perfect for me and my business partner," said Shad Richards of MyCallCloud. "We needed a small centrally located space outside of Denver, with a quick commute, and within our budget to get out of the house and run our business."
