Within the past year we have become involved in planning the launch of a boutique, green, eco hotel here in Austin. Part of the vision for the hotel is to have a coworking space as the community hub for the hotel experience. As other hotels around the world start to take seriously the workspace opportunities within their ecosystems, we see an opportunity to do this here in a distinctly Austin way. We are envisioning having a coworking space where local Austinites and hotels guests mingle and work in a shared, community workspace. This project has opened our eyes to the possibility of extending coworking to other hotels in other cities.
