Pop-Up Co-working Comes to Raleigh

December 16, 2013 11:36 AM

In partnership with Historic Ventures LLC, HQ Raleigh will open pop-up co-working at the Capital Club Building during the month of January. Several pop-up shopping experiences have opened around the Triangle recently, but this is the first time the pop-up concept has been used to create a temporary entrepreneurial workspace.

The Historic Capital Club Building is conveniently situated in the heart of Downtown Raleigh at 16 West Martin Street.  Atop the building sits the ‘Grand Ballroom’, which was the hub of Raleigh's political, financial, and social life in the 1930’s.  Further renovated in 2005, it now showcases its original hardwood floors, 14+ foot ceilings and Art-Deco moldings as they were in 1930.   The ballroom features two meeting rooms, a kitchen, ample natural light, and panoramic views of downtown.

HQ Raleigh plans to equip the space with all necessary workplace amenities, including modern furniture, high-speed Internet, office supplies, and printing. This unique pop-up co-working arrangement will provide additional workspace options for HQ Raleigh members during their transition to the Warehouse District.

The pop-up co-working space will be open to current HQ Raleigh members and those who have signed up to join the community when its new location opens.  The Grand Ballroom will continue to operate as an event venue throughout the partnership with HQ Raleigh.

“HQ Raleigh is excited to offer a creative solution that will provide our members additional workspace while we complete renovations at our new building. The Grand Ballroom is a unique and beautiful location and we are fortunate to partner with the Historic Ventures LLC to maximize available space in downtown Raleigh in an innovative way,” says Community Manager Liz Tracy.
