Williamsburg-based co-working space The Yard is expanding to the Lower East Side, and is looking to partner up with a cafe.
The office cooperative will open at 85 Delancey Street next month, with room to accommodate about 250 people. Organizers are looking to fill a 900-square-foot ground floor restaurant space with room for 26 people with a vendor that they hope will come from the neighborhood. In 2011, The Yard opened a 14,000-square-foot office at 33 Nassau Avenue in Williamsburg. Young tech firms including Hype Machine, Uber and Wanderfly quickly set up shop in the complex, where private offices start at $395 per month, “coworking salons” rent for $195 per month and virtual offices go for as little as $95 a month.
The Yard will join Projective Space, a 7,000-square-foot communal office at 72 Allen Street, when it commutes into downtown Manhattan. Interested cafe applicants can reach firstname.lastname@example.org.
