HYATTSVILLE WIRE: A new coworking space opened in Hyattsville on Saturday.
Located at 4318 Hamilton St., just behind Polka Dot Park, the Hyattsville Business Center features a 1,459-square-foot work area and a 356-square-foot private kitchenette.
The business center offers the usual amenities: high speed wifi, printing, copying, scanning and faxing, complimentary basic office supplies and complimentary coffee, tea, water and snacks.
There’s also an in-house computer available on a first-come, first-served basis; public notary, document lamination and English/Spanish translations, on request, for an additional fee.
Co-owners Ana Pedroso Powell and Brandon Powell, who have worked in administrative and management roles in the past, told the Hyattsville Wire they got the idea after searching for a space for themselves.
They liked Hyattsville for the location due to the “the large and eclectic amount of small businesses” already in the area, which showed that the city is “welcoming and supportive” of small business, Ana Pedroso Powell said.
“To us, Hyattsville and the Route 1 corridor eludes vibrancy and inclusivity!” she added. “There are people from all walks of life, in different industries, everywhere you turn.”
Memberships cost $35 for a day pass or $299 for a monthly membership, which includes two free guest passes. The facility can also be rented out from 7 p.m. to midnight private events like a yoga class, book signings, networking events or pop-up art shows.
