      LocalWorks has a space full of natural light, organic materials, and incredible humans who value sustainable practices, supporting small business, and great coffee! Being in this space is a breath of fresh air and Charleston is a better place because of their culture and kindness.

                Love Local Works! This space is more than an office, it's a community. It's great seeing familiar faces every-time that I am there. The updates from the community manager keeps everyone included. Charleston is lucky to have such an organization.

                      I can honestly say, I never have a bad day at work. This space is so welcoming, inviting, and friendly. Everyone respects each other and the atmosphere is one of collaboration and positive reinforcement.

                        Local Works has been the perfect spot for my remote work. It hits everything I need: Clean, open, reliable wifi, wonderful staff, great co-working folks. The space has nooks for calls, easy printer access, and the occasional surprise goodies (always a fan). It's a true community that also respects your quiet working time and need for focus. Very happy here and highly recommend!

                          A bright, open space with fast wifi, good coffee, and friendly people, LocalWorks is run by a local non-profit that supports and promotes local businesses.

                                Everyone here is super friendly and helpful. They have great amenities and meeting spaces. The other people here are also very nice and social. I love coming in and finding a plate of muffins someone brought in for everyone. The local first approach is really cool as Charleston is an awesome place and Local Works gives it a chance to shine through in a co-working environment. Everything here is deliberately planned down to the details. Even the art on the walls comes from local artists.

                                  Inspiring, creative work space filled with the coolest people and a variety of interesting businesses. Monthly events and workshops keep me engaged and offer plenty of opportunity for networking.

                                    They will welcome you on day 1. More importantly, they will grow your business by connecting you to the material and human resources necessary to succeed.

                                      This is the first time I've worked out of a co-working space, and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to the traditional office set-up! I love the hustle and bustle mixed with quiet days, the freedom to come & go as I need, accessible parking, and convenient location on the peninsula. Love this LLF fam!

                                          Local Works is most definitely the best co-working space within the greater ChuckTown Region. The furnishings, desk spaces and professional accoutrements are unparalleled with any other co-working space, this side of the Pee Dee. When my crüe and I pursue work here at LoWo, it's like we are re-enacting scenes from Office Space but except we are actually perfecting our craft and making cool stuff! Our greatest dreams shall come true and we shall be triumphant in all endeavors as long as we keep on rockin' the free world at LoWo.... Behold the destiny = Victory!

The location is perfect and there is plenty of parking. the infrastructure is well setup, you will have everything you need to be comfortable including coffee, a kitchen, plenty of work space, conference room, etc. The internet works fast. The organizers are very friendly and provide a great 'local' atmosphere.

                                                    June 2019

                                                    I feel a sense of pride in having my business associated with Local Works. For BIG Realty it was important for me to maintain a local small company feel. Local Works gives me the space I need without having a huge overhead of a traditional brick and mortar brokerage. Real Estate has gone more digital so I love having a dedicated space but I don't feel guilty if I'm not able to go into the office every day. Great vibe, great coffee, and the people just make it awesome!

                                                            Local Works has been instrumental in helping Ernst & Young (EY) get started in the Charleston market. We have a focus on serving South Carolina and in particular, Charleston. Initially, Local Works allowed us to use Day Passes as we were getting started. Then Local Works allowed us to find a near-term space that allowed us the time needed to better understand the Commercial Real Estate options in the area. We need near-term (Local Works), short-term, and long-term options. Local Works was creative enough to give us a near-term for two months but allowing us to use a space being vacated by one of their subscribers for two months. This gave us the time to find both short-term and long-term options and Local Works was instrumental in helping us explore these options. EY is a large, global firm and we have many offices in the United States. In coming to a new market like Charleston we are similar to most entrepreneurs in that we are learning more about so many aspects of this particular market. We are so thankful that Local Works provide flexible, cost-effective office space that addressed our near-term needs. Specifically, Steve Fletcher was THE BEST to work with and made us feel at home.

I love the hustle and bustle mixed with quiet days, the freedom to come & go as I need, accessible parking, and convenient location on the peninsula. Love this LLF fam!

They helped my company win a startup competition, find land, and find potential employees. I felt welcomed on day 1 and have now been a member for over a year. I wish I had known about Local Works when I sold lemonade as a kid. I could have boosted sales by 300%! Seriously though, this place has changed my life, accelerated my business, and introduced me to a network of helpful and engaging people. I love Local Works!

I was super nervous at first because I thought I would be distracted, wouldn't be able to concentrate, may be too loud on the phone, or may miss the days of having space to myself. Every fear that I had completely went away and I enjoyed being surrounded by a community of entrepreneurs, creatives, my colleagues, and other business professionals that all had their individual identity. Local Works is a space that welcomes everyone rather you are coming in every day in jeans and sneakers or a business suite. Each person represented makes the space and community so unique and I am happy to work here everyday! Plus there is on street parking, nearby restaurants, and close to getting Down Town or North Charleston. Oh and free coffee!

Everyone respects each other and the atmosphere is one of collaboration and positive reinforcement. It is mutually understood that head phones means 'I'm on a roll' while the kitchen provides the perfect spot to bounce ideas off of one another. I used to work from home and found myself to be dreary and easily distracted. I wouldn't leave my house for a week or more at a time. I would see another human being for days. Now, thanks to Local Works, I am excited to get up and get to work. I have been here for two years now and I can't imagine ever going back to the home office.
