Coworking is not a new concept in Austin. Several quirky and cool spots exist in the city – and now there is a sexy new one located on 8th and Congress (convenient!).
CoCreate is a coworking venture designed with the oft-isolated creative freelancer in mind. It’s in a modern, hip art gallery (Austin Details | Art + Photo) in a central, walkable location. The idea is that going to a beautiful work-space and networking / collaborating with other creative professionals will enhance your productivity and your product.
Some of the amenities include:
- an A/V setup and Mac station for presentations
- WiFi (obvi)
- Fax, scanner, color copies
- Adobe software
Fees run from $30/day to $275/month, and the space is open M-F from 10am-6pm.
The space is owned and managed by Jann Alexander, a local artist / entrepreneur known in these parts for her Vanishing Austin series, a collection of brightly colored photographs showing some of Austin’s funky landmarks sights juxtaposed with new development.
CoCreate is doing an open house this month so that potential coworkers can do free half-day “test-drive” of the space.

Really great space and a really nice article.
