We provide not only work and meeting space, but a platform for you to share ideas, connect with others, get inspired, learn, support each other, and collaborate. The industry calls this ‘coworking’ (Check out this video). We call it awesome.

  • Meeting Room Rentals


    The Den & The Loft are creative meetings rooms at Platform 53 that can be rented by anyone, even non-members. They are perfect for meeting with clients, gathering your remote team together, and getting out of your normal office with your workgroup for an offsite. 


    Unlike many other meeting spaces, you're able to bring your own food and beverages (although catering can be arranged if requested). Both rooms have large collaboration screens and whiteboards, and coffee & tea are included. Other amenities may be available upon request. Seasonally The Lawn can be rented as well.


    More Details HERE. We can also create custom discounted packages for frequent bookings.
