A Tour of WeWork’s New Coworking Space in Philadelphia
WeWork, a popular coworking startup that leases out private offices and co-working spaces to creative freelancers and innovative tech companies across the globe, recently opened a new coworking campus in Philadelphia.
“Occupying two levels of the former Schmidt’s Brewery—inspiration for the huge letters spelling “Cheers” behind the reception desk—this Philadelphia office space makes the most of its industrial space. The original features have been carefully preserved, so you’ll find graceful brick archways, sliding metal doors, and rough concrete columns. There are plenty of comfy common areas inside, and Schmidt’s Commons just outside the front door is a vast space perfect for all sorts of events. The very walkable NoLibs neighborhood is known for its great eateries and atmospheric local bars, especially favorites like Standard Tap and Frankford Hall. The office space is just minutes away from the Old City District, the home of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and many other historical landmarks. The Market-Frankford Line has a stop on Girard Avenue, a five-minute walk from the office. There’s also a parking lot located diagonally across the street. Attracting a wide range of businesses, this Philadelphia office space is a great option for artists, designers, and other young entrepreneurs, as well as corporations looking for a local base of operations”, says WeWork
