Entrepreneurs rejoice! All those tired of working in their pajamas now have a space to call their office home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.

Above the iconic Phat Albert Warehouse on Flatbush Avenue between Empire Boulevard and Sterling Street, a new co-working office space – BKLYN Commons – is set to officially open its doors Jan. 1.

According to Jack Srour, president of BKLYN Commons, the influx of entrepreneurs and freelancers within the vicinity was all the proof he and his team needed to open the 6,000-square-foot space.

“We saw that there is a huge demand in terms of people wanting to rent office spaces. We figured the way the community is changing and the needs that it has there’s really nothing in this area that’s catering to the entreprene­ur,” Srour explained.

BKLYN Commons handles all the amenities one would desire in an office: high speed Internet, WiFi access, small and large meeting rooms equipped with Smart TV, daily mail and package handling, complimentary coffee, tea, water, and much more.

There are 25 fully-furnished private offices ranging in size from single individual suites to 8-person team private rooms, and for a limited time the co-working space is offering a 50 percent off your first month promotion if you sign up prior to Jan. 1.

“Open desks are starting at $20 a day, and offices are starting around the $350 range at first. Going forward we’ll have different pricing criteria as the offices get bigger,” Srour said.

Currently, the co-working space has a maximum capacity of about 100 people but Srour hopes to expand the office space demand grows.
