"This project doesn't happen without our community support" says CoHaus co-founder Megan Kellin. 

CoHaus describes their project as:

CoHaus is a collective workspace where you can work independently alongside other creatives and professionals. It’s where work meets play. You focus on growing your business, we’ll handle the rest. Get furnished, move-in ready workspaces with the infrastructure you need and premier amenities. Be a part of an inspirational community and network with other members.
