The Commons In New Town Is Where People Create, Collaborate And Celebrate

Now's a great time to 'Become a Commoner.' For those seeking a celebration space or a handy, flexible serviced office with a community atmosphere through which to network, share resources and build relationships, look to The Commons in the business district of New Town in St. Charles.

This 'go-to hub' location at 3324 Rue Royale features private offices and shared workspaces for entrepreneurs, freelance professionals and remote workers.

"The Commons is a fun, yet professional, collaborative space providing a cost-effective and efficient way to work and grow," says owner Paul Dinkins. "We also have an event room that non-members can book for private or corporate events."

Paul says their location is situated in the heart of a bustling business district surrounded by an array of amenities. "Lakeside walking paths, restaurants, bars, service businesses and retail shops are just a stone's throw away, providing convenience and a vibrant atmosphere for working or your event."

Within The Commons space itself, members can leverage print, shipping and mailbox services; meeting rooms; a shared kitchen; complimentary coffee and tea; meeting rooms; and free parking. 

Per month memberships range from $35-$375 for workspaces and $500-$1,100 for private offices. Jill Rogers, manager of The Commons, says single-day passes are available from $20-$50 per day. She says meeting and event space can be secured at $25-$75 per hour. Virtual office accommodations also can be made. 

Paul says that those who've become members of The Commons reveal that they've increased productivity and boosted creativity. "They enjoy getting out of their own bubble to connect with others and having all of the flexibility in arrangements that we offer." 

For special events, the audio-equipped space can seat up to 40 participants. It also has an attached deck. A full kitchen, with catering options and servers, is available, too.

The Commons team just celebrated their one-year business anniversary.
