New Industrial-Chic Coworking Space Elevates Professional Workspaces in the Region

Scranton, PA (November 28, 2023) Urban Co-Works is proud to announce the opening of its newest coworking space in Scranton, Pennsylvania, providing professionals and entrepreneurs with a dynamic and collaborative work environment.  The coworking business is located at the newly renovated space at 116 North Washington Ave. With a focus on fostering a dynamic professional community, Urban Co-Works offers a range of amenities to meet the diverse needs of today’s workforce.

The new Urban Co-Works in Scranton came together through a collaboration with Mayor Paige G. Cognetti and the City of Scranton, Charlie Jefferson, owner of 116 North Washington Ave, and Urban Co-Works.

“Urban Co-Works will substantially contribute to downtown Scranton’s thriving business environment,” said Mayor Paige G. Cognetti. “The City is dedicated to revitalization, and their model of innovation, connectivity, and productivity directly supports that goal while transforming the modern working environment.”

“We are excited to see months of hard work result in an incredible space for a growing company,” said Charlie Jefferson.  “Urban Co-Works found opportunity in Downtown Scranton thanks to Mayor Cognetti and her economic development staff.  They brought Jeff and his company to the downtown and got creative to make the project a reality. The downtown is a vibrant neighborhood with great places to eat and shop and now a the best coworking space in NEPA.  It’s the right time for this idea in our town and Urban Co-Works is the perfect company to make it happen.”

We are thrilled to bring this unique coworking experience to Scranton, offering professionals the ideal space to thrive and succeed.”
