Raleigh Founded has announced plans to add a new site in downtown Cary in March 2024. The new coworking space is located in the heart of Cary’s downtown along East Chatham Street in the Rogers West building. The coworking space will occupy the building’s second and third floors and will house 35 private offices, in addition to open coworking and classroom areas. Retail establishments — such as restaurants and stores that are anticipated to open later in 2024 — will occupy the ground floor.
Here, fully equipped private offices may accommodate teams of two to 24 people. Conference room areas and smaller private offices are also included in larger suites. There will also be additional conference space at this location, as well as smaller “huddle” rooms that members can reserve or use for up to 10 hours each week.
Meanwhile, Wi-Fi, a mailbox, printing, and access to community gatherings are other benefits of the new space. For instance, the Cary Founded kitchen serves locally brewed coffee and beer. Members also receive a 25% discount on bookings for larger event and classroom spaces, as well as access to a variety of local resource providers who promote small enterprises.
With windows overlooking famous locations like Ashworth’s Drugs — as well as popular attractions like Bond Brothers, Scratch Kitchen and Big Dom’s Bagel Shop — the new building offers breathtaking views. A few steps away, the recently opened downtown park in Cary is also conveniently accessible by foot.
Originally scheduled to debut in the fall of 2023, the new venue experienced various construction delays. However, according to Director Rebekah Gregg, space was made available to early tenants at various Raleigh Founded locations prior to the site’s launch.
Notably, tenants might have some trouble parking, at least initially, as Cary has experienced significant growth in recent years. While there is free parking nearby in the United Methodist Church parking lot with up to 20 spaces distributed around the structure, street parking will also be an option. Traffic has also been increasing after the opening of the new park.
That said, the city is attempting to solve the issue, and work on a new parking garage next to the Cary Founded building is scheduled to begin early next year. Plus, the city does not currently charge for parking.
