Kennedy Building - KenGap Holdings Inc.
North Bay coworking space filling pandemic-created need
15 Dec 2021
Taking up one entire floor of the building, KennedyWorks encompasses six offices, a boardroom, a small kitchen, and a shared waiting area, along with access to a shared bathroom. The offices range in size from 96 square feet to 202 square feet, with the 259-square-foot boardroom able to seat six around the table comfortably. Offices can be rented by the day, the week, or the month. Though some coworking spaces are set up as open-concept rooms where clients intermingle and network freely, each office at KennedyWorks is a private space with a locked door, so clients can come and go freely throughout their stay without worrying about anyone else accessing the space.
