Rising real estate costs make it difficult for artists and creative entrepreneurs to live and work in New York City. Spaceworks is an experienced developer and operator of creative workspace. Our goal is for our real estate projects to serve and provide space for- rather than pricing out and uprooting- existing communities and neighborhoods.

Our staff has extensive experience interfacing with public and private development partners in order to co-create workspace with artists and cultural workers across disciplines. Our spaces in operation have consistently high activation rates, and demand for our work is increasing. Please contact us here if you're interested in working with us.
