Free tryout day Monday as new co-working space West Seattle Office Junction officially opens

Back in November, we reported on West Seattle Office Junction – local entrepreneurs Christine Bartels and Stefan Hansmire (above) working to find a space on the peninsula to set up a co-working enterprise, someplace that at-home/telecommuting, or otherwise office-less, workers could use, not just as a working space, but as a place to collaborate with and enjoy the workday company of others.

The Junction space they were close to leasing at the time didn’t work out – but after an extensive search, they have locked down a brand-new multi-level unit just south of the Junction, and tomorrow (Monday, April 1st) is opening day. It’s a space with a view:

We photographed Stefan, Christine, and the view from West Seattle Office Junction’s rooftop deck during an open house they had last Thursday night for those who have been participating in co-working meetups and other events while the quest for a permanent location has been under way.

For opening day tomorrow, you are invited to drop in – for a few minutes, or even a few hours – free, to give the space a try. It’s a free day for everyone. West Seattle Office Junction is at 5230 California SW, unit B (map). See many more photos in their gallery here – the WSOJ website also includes information on amenities, membership levels, and rates here, chronicles of meetups and other events along the path to WSOJ becoming reality, and more.

    What an incredibly cool idea! It makes me wish I didn’t already have a downtown office…this is perfect for entrepreneurs and start-ups. I’ll help spread the word and keep it in mind for myself if I ever decide to quit my day job and pursue my dreams ! :-))))

    So excited for this new space! If you work from home you should definitely check it out – no dirty dishes competing for your attention, no neighbor’s barking dog to bother you, lots of free coffee/tea and very nice people in a beautiful building. There’s even a roof deck!

    Congratulations and a big thank you to Stefan and Christine for bringing coworking to West Seattle!

    I think I’ll stop by tomorrow to check it out. Just in surfing their website a few weeks ago I was hipped to the very cool To-Do management tool Total benefit to have stumbled upon that. Really wishing you all the best, and who knows I may be joining you from time to time!

    This is excellent news and very encouraging for the development of California between Morgan Junction and Alaska Junction.

    Here’s hoping more local business fill in the street level retail spaces!
