Don Vallaster, an architect helping to develop the new Astoria Co-op Grocery, has opened a new co-working space on Pier 12.
The 2,500-square-foot space includes several offices and conference rooms for rent between $800 and $1,000 a month, along with a kitchenette and a central seating area looking out over the Columbia River.
“It was kind of designed for people who might work in the creative fields,” Vallaster said, noting he already has tenants including musicians, web designers and the Astoria Co-op Grocery.
Managing the space for Vallaster is Portland-based Centrl Office, which also offers co-working spaces in Portland. People who join Centrl Office can also access the company’s other co-working spaces, Vallaster said.
