Coworking spaces and office spaces provide a professional and focused environment that is conducive to increased productivity and creativity. With the elimination of distractions, you can get more done in less time.

Coworking spaces offer a community of like-minded professionals and entrepreneurs, providing opportunities for collaboration, referrals, and business connections.

Renting an office space or coworking space can be more cost-effective than setting up a traditional office, as it eliminates the need for long-term leases, high startup costs, and maintenance expenses. 

Coworking and office spaces offer flexible lease options, allowing you to only pay for the space you need when you need it. This can be especially beneficial for small businesses and startups that need to keep costs low while still providing a professional work environment.


The Tappan Building, located in Gloucester, Massachusetts, is a historic building with a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. The building, originally constructed in 1810, has served various purposes throughout its history and continues to be a prominent feature of the city’s downtown area.

Captain John Tappan, a successful local businessman, and shipbuilder, built the Tappan Building. The building was designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style and was originally used as a commercial and retail space. Various businesses, including a pharmacy, a dry goods store, and a grocery store, occupied the first-floor storefronts. The upper floors of the building were used as office space and apartments.
