Coworking at Venture X: changing the workplace
By Jill Alexander
As the call for leasing traditional office space declines, there’s another option for those who don’t want to work from home post-COVID.
It’s coworking and it’s the hybrid way of working in today’s market for those who want all the perks, the space and the socialization without the big lease.
It can be found at Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch, 10089 Willow Creek Road, Suite 200, which opened on April 17.
“We believe this concept of coworking will become more common going forward, especially as corporations downsize their HQs and go to a more distributed hub-and-spoke model of the workplace,” said John Lee, a former Wall Street executive and now the owner of Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch.
Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch is in a three-story building and occupies 22,671 square feet of premium office space. It offers 91 office options of coworking space to accommodate teams of all sizes.
“Whether you are a one-person team or a growing business with an established employee base, we have the perfect solution for you,” Lee said.
Don’t expect plain cubicles, white walls or popcorn ceilings at Venture X-Scripps Ranch. Instead, there are premium coffee machines, printing areas, conference rooms, private phone booths, access to a newly renovated gym and a 1,500-square-foot event space.
Venture X-Scripps Ranch is located on the main artery of an industrial business parkway, where there are well-known life sciences and biotechnology companies.
“There is a growing tech scene in San Diego, with many high-profile tech companies taking residence in the area,” Lee said.
Other amenities include janitorial service, a café and lounge area providing snacks and drinks, 24/7 keycard access, and even wellness classes for mind, body and spirit regularly.
Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch also has a “Mother’s Room” exclusively for mothers and expectant mothers.
While other places offer coworking, Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch offers a coworking solution unlike most, Lee said. For instance, Venture X San Diego-Scripps Ranch is offering an exclusive pricing package for its Founding Partners Program for a limited time.
There are private office spaces members can choose from and there are internship desks that can be leased for three months for those who don’t want to commit to longer terms.
“We also have month-to-month options for all of our offerings,” Lee said.
“We are excited to bring a vibrant community and hospitality-driven workspace to San Diego. We aim to provide a five-diamond workplace for businesses, small and large,” Lee said.
He said the goal is for all business members to leave every day thinking, “I can’t wait to go back.”
“More than that, we want to provide a sanctuary for people to get work done, have their creative juices flowing, ideate, collaborate, socialize, network and exercise both mind and body,” Lee said. “We hope you love coming to Venture X-SD Scripps Ranch as much as we do.”
