The Flamingo House: Why workers are ‘flocking’ to Boca Raton co-working space

November 07, 2019

BOCA RATON — Everything about this boutique co-working space feels hip, minimalist and close-knit, from the kombucha on tap near the mini sink to the garage-style enclosure.

Remote workers and digital nomads from 30 businesses stream in and out of private and shared work spaces, “flocking” to this niche community that values idea sharing and a generational exodus from a corporate office environment.

Amber Tollefson, the 37-year-old The Flamingo House founder, believes the remedy to remote-work loneliness is group cohesion that increases work productivity.

Boca Raton: Emerging warehouse district gives artists a place to prosper

January 30, 2019

Miami has Wynwood. Fort Lauderdale boasts FAT Village. While those arts districts are flourishing and infusing their cities with dynamism and creativity, Boca Raton could claim nothing similar — until now. ROC Urban is coming into its own and crackling with energy. The two double rows of warehouse buildings, tucked within a warehouse district on both sides of Northwest First Avenue just north of Spanish River Boulevard and west of Dixie Highway, have become home to creative entrepreneurs. While traditional warehouse tenants, such as a roofing company, are still there, they are gradually giving way to a co-working space, craft brewery, artists, a jewelry designer, a custom furniture designer and others.

The Emerging Era of a World Office

July 05, 2017

We are in the emergence of a new era. The age of the remote working environment - which is nearly the first time in history that we have this power. Careers and income no longer need to be lead by our geographic location. Welcome to the 21st century and thanking technology for getting us this far. The 'digital nomad life' is a real thing nowadays and it provides a whole new sense of work-life balance along with self-discipline. A pretty interesting concept considering that majority of the population is striving for such a lifestyle.

Trendy Office In Town

As a telecommuter and freelancer, respectively, we were constantly interrupted by our barking dogs while on business calls and client meetings at home were far from professional.  We worked with a pool of creatives that were facing similar issues so this provided an affordable and collaborative solution. Aside from the standard office perks, members have access to our built-in studio which really sets us apart.
