Coworking space opens April 2 in Southwest Austin

Orange Coworking will open April 2 at 2110 W. Slaughter Lane, Ste. 160, offering workspace options and access to conference and meeting rooms to Southwest Austinites, owner Shelley Delayne said.

A few other coworking spaces are located in the area, but not many are located south of the river, Delayne said.

"I have a toddler, and working at home when you have a child is no longer productive," Delayne said. "And so I went looking for a coworking space, and there wasn't one [near me]. And there's lots of people around here running their own businesses or starting businesses, and it didn't seem fair that people had to schlep north of the river."

Members can bring their own laptop and sign up to use the space based on how often they plan to use it. Amenities at the business include gigabit fiber wireless Internet, a craft room, workspaces and a large meeting space that can serve as a classroom for as many as 40 people. Rates are based on frequency of use, ranging from $75 per month for one day per week to $400 per month for full-time access. Free coffee and tea will also be available, Delayne said.

The business will hold a ribbon cutting April 2 at 9:30 a.m.
