A new co-working space will open in West St, Umina, in September.
Common on West, or The Common, will offer workspaces, and access to teleconferencing services and meeting areas.
Tenants will be able to choose from private or flexi-desks and casual or long-term options.
Mr Colin Taylor, founder and managing director of a Umina-based marketing agency, said he was one of the first to sign up as a tenant.
He said he was a firm believer in, and advocate for, keeping his office space local and avoiding the gruelling commute to Sydney or Newcastle.
“What my team and I were looking for was a professional working environment with affordable pricing,” Mr Taylor said.
“It’s a short walk or drive away from home, and only a two-minute walk to the beach.
“It really does give us the best of both worlds,” he said.
Common on West has also welcomed Mr Jim Hawkins, a local licensed builder specialising in small residential developments.
Mr Hawkins said he was looking for a convenient, streamlined office space from which to manage his various projects.
