-- Toronto based Coworkingspace.ca is now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment for its office spaces. It can be used for anything from a shared deskspace to a self contained 4200 square foot office in their very cool loft-like offices in the west end office facility. Founder Leo Coholic observes "Along with the community offered by coworking there are also the practical considerations that many startups require. There is a often a need for privacy, and a lot of space during the early going of startup. We are cognizant of that. We are also aware of the fact that many a startup does not have funds secured on their own, or by way of venture capital. That is why we are allowing them to use their bitcoin to take full on office space up to 4200 square feet". He continues "its difficult to gage what the amount of bitcoin any one startup or founder might have, but we are willing to take up 100% of the rate in bitcoin"
The facility is a well appointed freestanding building of 14,000 square feet on two 7,000 square foot plates. Nice clear heights (11.5 feet on the second floor) and wonderful clear span of 46 feet on either floor. It could house a very flat oganisation of approximatley 120 person with relative ease. It has a kitchenette, and boast of a very large boardroom that can accomodate 22.
It is well located for any organization that wants to have a Toronto presence in the west end and cater to locations beyond such as Mississauga, Oakville, and the Pearson International Airport area. It is on the TTC, near the GO, three QEW interchanges and highway 427.
