Toronto’s newest pay-by-the-hour co-working space just opened on Queen Street West.
Located at 1000 Queen Street West, by Ossington, Workmode has created a “safe environment” for residents that are looking for a more convenient and productive work space, or for those who may not feel safe going back to the office.
There are several desks and semi-private, partitioned solo workstations with private rooms available.
In accordance with Toronto Public Health guidelines, the co-working space place requires a touchless temperature check upon entry, with screening questions and hand sanitization.
A hospital-grade air filtration system has been installed in the space, masks must be worn when not at a workstation although it is encouraged, physical distancing at workstations is enforced and high touched areas and spaces are cleaned multiple times a day.
The space was designed by architect Noam Hazan and Toronto Based Interior Designer Maayan Kessler, which features clear partitions between seats, and opaque partitions between desks. Perforated screens between meeting areas have also been implemented, according to a Workmode spokesperson.
“Dr. John Trougakos, Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour at Rotman, also advised on the amount of natural light, greenery, volume for music/white noise and floor plan. “
To complete the office space, Workmode is offering unlimited coffee by Ontario’s own Detour Coffee Roasters.
The co-working spot will be open from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm and Sundays at 10 am to 4 pm.
Prices range from $10 an hour and $50 a day, with options such as standing desks, monitors and rooms which can be booked on their app.
At the moment, Workmode is offering the first two hours free via GetInWorkmode.
