New York’s mayor supports the creation of business incubator with Coworking facilities

Is the Coworking movement getting some kind of official recognition ? It sounds like it is, after Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of New York, just announced is support (a 250.000 $ grant has been provided) for the launch of a new business incubator with coworking facilities in the Bronx. The goal is to accomodate up to 400 entrepreneurs.

Sunshine Realty Management inked a 10-year lease with Taconic Investment Partners to make the incubator a reality. Sunshine expects the office space to be self-sustaining within the first three years. There is about 11,000 square feet of office space in the soon-to-be-open Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator—room enough for 180 workstations. The incubator will offer desks and coworking space for freelancers.
