If you are looking to find a cool new shared workspace, I couldn’t recommend a better spot than Cross Campus. I joined the one in Santa Monica a few months back, and am extremely glad I did. For either a small daily rate, or a reasonable office rental fee, you get access to a really comfortable and attractive office space, and lots of friendly but work-focused fellow members. They also have a food area with coffee, beer, and other snacks and drinks available, printers, other amenities, conference room space availability, and all the time you need. The one in Santa Monica where I go is open 24/7 as are the other locations. So if you get some ideas at 3 am you can zip on over to work things out! They have locations all over Southern California and even one in Scottsdale, Arizona.
They also have very friendly staff members, beautiful surroundings, and a very cool but focused vibe to help you do your best work. They have offices all over, and once you join one, you can also use any other location. Here’s a photo of the Santa Monica location. If you should see me there at 6 am slogging out a final draft, stop by and say aloha!
They charge a small initiation fee (which they waived for me just for asking), and a monthly rate of $75/month for use for 2 days. After that you pay for additional days at very reasonable rates. There are other various membership plans all outlined on their website crosscamp.us.
They also have a lot of workshops, events, get togethers, and opportunities to meet other likeminded, hard-working folks. They also have meditation rooms, beer on tap, cold brew coffee, and lots of fun events to break the ice with other members.
The membership allows you to use any other location; and you will find their offices beautifully designed with comfortable amenities and great high-speed WiFi.
I have found it a great place to really dig in and get some focused work done, away from the distractions of a home office or public WiFi spot. The energy there is upbeat, positive, but very serious on succeeding in whatever endeavor you may wish to pursue. I like that very much, especially when it’s 3 am and I’m under the gun of a tight deadline. For more information and rates, visit crosscamp.us. Tell them Joy sent you!
