With the holidays around the corner, everyone’s calendar is filled up and likely feeling socialed out. To my surprise, Createscape was truly a nice escape from the ordinary coworking space. Sometimes I find it to be a lot of work to start fresh at a coworking space but that wasn’t the case here. I immediately was greeted by a member and shown around. Createscape felt very welcoming and was large enough to find an area to set up shop.
Why People Come
Createscape prides itself in being your neighborhood coworking space. It’s nestled in East Austin off Tillery street. If you haven’t ventured in this area yet, you’ll find lots of local owned restaurants and shops with it’s own unique Eastside charm. With so many coworking spaces to choose from, Createscape stands out in it’s affordability. The cofounders felt it was important to include a price point that was accessible to it’s community members. Many writers, filmmakers, new tech and people launching businesses on their own claim Createscape as their home.
There is a lot of stress when it comes to moving to a new area. Don’t let finding your community be one of them. Createscape creates a supportive community by offering several events a month. You can get to know other community members by attending their happy hours, brunches and game nights. It makes networking a lot more organic and easier to transition from “just work” conversations.
Since it’s inception in 2014, Createscape has expanded several times. It first started off MLK and Manor and within less than a year, expanded to the Tillery location. 2 years later they were able to open more offices into their Howdy room and within the last year expanded again. You can’t argue that this community is exploding!
Outside of having additional private offices and desks, the expansion also includes several community spaces. I always think the best way to meet new people is in the kitchen. Although Createscape does make it easier than other places to network, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to work at it. Some people can get discouraged joining a very social community but not make much progress in making friends. Make sure you get out to the events instead of staying in your own workspace.
Why you should come
As I’ve mentioned before, it’s really up to you on what you value in a work space. If you want an active community at an affordable price point, Createscape is your place. You’ll have plenty of parking available as it’s located in East Austin. Come grab a day pass, check out the space and join the community.
