PCB Plaza Brings Private Office Space to the Small Business Owner

by June 8, 2012 • 1 comment

One of the things Panama City Beach has been lacking for a while is a cozy place for the super-small business (3 employees or less) to call home.  The concept seems simple really, find a building, build some walls and rent out small private offices that include power and internet in the rent.  Add flexible lease terms and a convenient location and you have a winner.

I’ve been working for myself for a long time and the need for a small, private place to work is something that has been hard to fill.  Spending $800+ per month for a whole office in which much of the space will go unused is just silly.  So you can see why the idea of a shared workspace works for me.

Yes, both PCBDaily and Panama City Beach Luxury Properties have a new home.  🙂  That’s our office up above.

The concept.

The whole idea revolves around the fact that people that own small businesses need a place to work but can’t afford to spend more than a couple hundred dollars.  I’ve worked from home for a long time, but I’ve always had the need to meet clients, get away from the kids 🙂 , and store work crap.

The idea of a shared workspace isn’t new, though.  Called Coworking, the concept has cropped up all over the world, centered around the creative industry since many of the “self-employed” in that industry are freelancers on a budget.

Although I wouldn’t call what’s at PCB Plaza Coworking, per se, it’s certainly an opportunity to have some private office space for a budget price.

Office for rent.

Originally there were about 8 spaces for rent there, but they’re currently expanding and building out a half dozen more spaces for rent.  The private offices are a variety of 10×10′ and 10×20′ spaces.  Many of them have outside doors and the rest have a shared hallway and common entry.

Pricing starts at $325 per month and includes power, internet, access to community kitchen and use of other common areas.
