Our New Space:
The Port Product Lab
We're excited to announce a new partnership with Port Workspaces, the Bay Area's largest independent coworking provider. Elevator Works has assumed operations of a 4,000 sqft space located in the Kaiser Mall building, in downtown Oakland on the shores of Lake Merritt. This space is a huge expansion for Elevator Works, and puts us in partnership with an organization that has developed great strategies for managing real estate and coworking.
We recently relaunched this space as the Port Product Lab. We're accepting memberships for professionals and small teams who are delivering a product or service and want to be around others that can be part of their professional network. We have available dedicated spaces which members are outfitting as creative studios and workshops. All memberships include a great coworking environment, across all Port Workspaces locations. This means that members who need to spend time outside the workshop as part of their business have a great environment in which to do so.
Our commitment to helping emerging manufacturers in Oakland only increases as we embark on this next chapter of our story. This is especially true where we can in help those companies take advantage of modern digital design and fabrication and other technology to get further, faster - to prototype and produce locally - to work together and buy from each other.
