What is a Co-Working Center?
Co-working is a fresh, innovative concept that gives individuals the opportunity to work somewhere between the couch and the corporate office. For some, working out of a home office feels isolating or too personal to visit at with clients, and for others the typical office environment proves too regimented, stuffy or costly. That’s where we come in. The Sybil Property Co-Work Center provides affordable shared office space to like-minded entrepreneurs, freelancers and other professionals. Whether used by these individuals as a primary or secondary office, the center offers the opportunity to work in a relaxed but productive, community-focused environment.
Where are you located?
The Sybil Property Co-Work Center is located at 2 Seminary Hill Rd (cross street Route 6) in the quaint town of Carmel, NY.
