Feb. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- In cooperation with Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI) and the Downtown Improvement District, CoWork Jax is holding the first “Downtown Coworking Week“ in Jacksonville, Florida, to be hosted by AT&T Tower 301. A growing trend in coworking is one result of advances in technology, which also reduces the dependency on the need for a traditional office environment.  Coworking provides a place for the synergy of working in a shared business environment with others that can‘t be found by those working from home, or in their local coffee shop.  Terry Lorince, executive director, Downtown Vision, Inc. commented, “The response to our online survey is positive with more than 70 people completing the survey so far.  The results will help the coworking committee determine the level of interest, define what workers want and determine the optimum coworking scenario for the downtown market.”  

The coworking committee is hosting this week-long event at the AT&T Tower 301 to join the growing number of cities that have at least one coworking space, and to determine what will work best for downtown Jacksonville.  This will be a casual coworking event, allowing people to experience working in a coworking environment on a temporary basis, and at no cost to them.

“The AT&T Tower 301 is pleased to be involved in this effort as a way to support local entrepreneurs and Downtown as well as showcasing our building,” said Pamela Smith, property owner representative of AT&T Tower 301.

Downtown Coworking Week will be held Monday, February 28 through Friday, March 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Anyone interested in participating may register at General information on the coworking initiative in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, and links to local online communities can be found at

“Coworking is a social enterprise that can inspire and support ground-breaking initiatives and ultimately drive economic development," said Elton Rivas, co-founder CoWork Jax. "Jacksonville has the talent and structural resources we’ve seen in cities with successful coworking programs, particularly in innovation corridors like the Pacific Northwest.  We’re excited to launch this initiative in Downtown Jacksonville and look forward to the event's success,” he added.

Terry Lorince of Downtown Vision, Inc. invites property owners in the Downtown Jacksonville, Florida Improvement District who are interested in participating to contact him at 904.634.0303.
