Ribbon Cutting Event to Celebrate Opening of Social Workplace Cowork Space Cowork, office and meeting space located in the heart of the South Bay
Lomita, CA, September 11, 2018 – Social Workplace will commemorate the opening of its new cowork and meeting space with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2315 Lomita Blvd, Lomita, CA. Members of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and local officials from the City of Lomita will be present at the ceremony taking place on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 4pm.
Social Workplace is located in the heart of the South Bay in Lomita – now seeing an upswing in new businesses and housing – and serves a need in the community to provide comfortable and flexible coworking space for business owners, entrepreneurs, creatives and at-home or remote workers to work and have meetings.
Since the office building was purchased in January, the space has gone through a transformation now offering a bright, clean workplace with lots of natural light and vibrant finishes to inspire creativity and productivity. Amenities include conference rooms for rent, furnished private offices and beachy lounges with living-room-style open work desks, classroom space for 40, and a podcast studio. Members and guests have access to free hi-speed Wi-Fi, coffee/tea, water and snacks, print/copy services, A/V equipment and foosball.
Driven by a passion to provide start-ups and professionals with support they need to grow their business, owner Heidi Butzine and her partner Erik have a vision to help re-energize the local business community. “Social Workplace is like a gym membership for your business,” said Butzine. “We’re here to help members stay committed to their business goals.”
“We’ve done the long commutes, we’ve worked from home and we know that having a great space to work and hold meetings without distractions has made a huge impact on our business,” said Erik. There’s also a personal connection to the City as it’s where Heidi grew up, “My elementary school is literally just around the corner, my family is still here, and my uncle worked at Station 6 on Narbonne Avenue for LA County Fire. There are lots of good memories here,” she said.
Heidi and Erik are entrepreneurs themselves and have started several businesses over the past 20 years. Social Workplace members can tap into that experience for business brainstorming, feedback or collaboration. “Work doesn’t have to be lonely. If you can go to work in a fun, supportive environment, you’re going to boost your business,” said Butzine.
