Many things come with a green desk membership:
1.) A Turnkey Office Space: Each office space is fully-furnished so that on move-in day, you can get right to work with no worry and no hassle! Each office includes a desk, a cabinet, a drawer, a chair, power outlets, a shared internet connection and VoIP-ready network.
2.) Conference Room Time: The conference room time you’re allotted depends on how many desks are in your office! Every office is allowed 10-hours as a base amount, and then 2-hours additionally for every desk in the rental agreement, per month. So, if you are renting a 3-desk office, you’re allowed sixteen hours of total conference room time every month. If you need additional time in our conference rooms, we can rent it to you at an additional cost.
3.) Printing Allowances: Every member is allowed 150 black-and-white, and 20 color prints per-desk, per month! So, if you have a 3-desk office, you would be allowed a total of 450 black-and-white and 60 colored prints in a month. Need more in a month? No problem! If you go over the allotted amount, you can get additional black and white prints for 7-cents ($0.07) each and color prints for 37-cents ($0.37) each.
4.) A Keycard: Allowing you access 24/7, our keycards are an important part of our community. They are the first step in our security, and allow ease of access to our spaces even when our building managers are not there.
Yes, you can! You can change your office space within any of the green desk buildings, to fit your growing business needs. Just talk to your building manager, and they would be more than happy to assist you in finding a new unit in either their building or any of the others!
green desk accepts a variety of payment methods. The easiest way for most of our tenants is either via credit or debit, though checks and money orders can be brought to our building managers for payment as well. We also accept cash as payment, brought to our 155 Water St location, in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
No, you do not! Office rentals can start on any day of the work week (Monday-Friday) at any point during the month. If you choose to start on a day other than the first of the month, we will prorate your rent for you. One month rentals will not be prorated.
At green desk we don’t force you into having long-term contracts that might be damaging to small businesses. Our minimum rental time is one month, but as long as you give us a notice 30 days in advance of when you plan to leave, we are happy to work with you! Of course many green desk members are long-term renters, as our community and buildings are beautiful and thriving, but we understand long-term rentals aren’t for everyone.
Yes, you can! We would be more than happy to discuss any additional units you would like to rent. Feel free to contact any of our building managers, and they will be happy to assist you.
Hot Desk spaces are spaces in the open areas of green desk, typically in the lounge spaces, and similar to a quiet coffee shop. Open office spaces are the offices that are set-up for our Dedicated Desk tenants–they are offices in an open space, with the same fish-bowl type layout that green desk is known for, but in more a cubicle type shape. A private office is a suite that you and your company gets to yourself.
At green desk we have two different types of conference rooms–the first type is big enough to hold meetings for up to ten people and are available at every green desk location. To rent out these conference rooms for non-green desk members, it is $50/hour or $200/day. Our large conference room at our 42 West Street building, in Greenpoint, is suitable for holding up to 30 guests comfortably with a full view of the Manhattan skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. To rent out these conference rooms, it is $50/hour or $400/day. Both of these conference room types are media-ready, with a large TV and high speed WiFi.
Reserving one of our conference rooms is easy. Just log-in here to view our available conference rooms. If you are not a full green desk member, you can still book a conference room–it’s $40 per hour, or $200 for a full day. Just fill out the form here and bring it and your ID to the building manager! We’ll help you find a room that suits your needs and time-frame!
Our buildings are open from 9-5, Monday-Friday. If you are a green desk member, however, you will have 24/7 access to the building and its perks.
If you are renting a private office with green desk, you may have guests come into your personal office space, no problem!
