A personal plea on the ol’ blog. If you’re looking to share an awesome office space with other creative types, please read on, as I am in the market for a new office roomie.

I currently spend part of my time working out of a studio space at Queen & Spadina with Colin, which he has shared with three others for many years.

It’s an excellent spot, centrally located, in a very secure building. Right now, we’re downsizing into a smaller, brighter, newer office space, and we’re looking for a new person to join us.

July 1 (preferred, though I realize how tight a timeline that is) or August 1 move in date.

All info is below, and please share this far and wide if you know someone who might be interested

LOOKING FOR CREATIVE TENANT TO SHARE STUDIO SPACE

$435 / month to share a 570 square foot studio with creative types.

We have one spot available to share in a 570 sq ft studio office located at Queen and Spadina (192 Spadina, just north of Queen). It is in a super neighbourhood on two TTC streetcar lines, with a variety of restaurants, bars, clubs, stores and other spots of interest nearby.

We are looking for a creatively minded individual to share the space with the current tenants who work in film and journalism. The space is ideal for visual and/or commercial artists, graphic designers, web developers, filmmakers, freelance writers, etc.

The open-concept studio is more than 570 sq. ft., with large windows, hardwood floors, an 11-ft. ceiling and bathroom. There will also be a small kitchenette with sink, shelves and bar fridge. Nice and sunny, with north-facing windows, the space gets lots of indirect sun, making it welcoming but not hot.

Located on the 2nd floor with both a passenger and freight elevator, the studio is in a well maintained professional building that is very secure with video camera and electronic security, with 24-hour access to tenants. The portion of the studio that is available is roughly 8 ft by 12 ft with large wall space, and facing the window wall.

The space is separated into three roughly equal-sized work areas of approximately 100-110 square feet each. You will be sharing the space with three people: Jay Somerset, a writer and editor; and Katrina and Colin, two film types who work with TIFF, among other clients.

The base monthly rent for the space is $375 plus utilities (hydro, high speed internet), which to roughly between $30 per month. First and last month’s rent and references required.

Move-in date: July 1st or August 1st.

Please email me at katarina@ultra8.ca or email Colin at colin@ultra8.ca, or call him at 647-895-8846. And please let us know what you would be using the space for.

Here’s a few photos to help you get a sense of the space.
