New co-working space coming to Oregon District

Several area businesses and creative agencies have come together to create a work area that help serves as a functional office space alternative.

The Nucleus, a co-working space that affords its clients an open area to collaborate with clients and escape their home offices, is coming to the first floor at 411 East Fifth Street.

“The Nucleus is kind of like an incubator,” says Andrew White, co-owner of Indigo Life Media. “Our goal is to have something for everyone whether it’s programming for the community, a workplace for freelancers or somewhere to grow into a building of their own one day.”

The Nucleus will function as a non-profit co-working space. The workspace welcomes tax-deductible sponsorships and donations to help enhance amenities such as office furniture and supplies.

Funding will also go towards programming for community workshops and projects focused on growing downtown.

A variety of options are available, from a private locked office to desk space with rates starting at $95 a month or just $15 for a daily drop-in.

Those interested in the space or sponsorships should email

The Nucleus anticipates opening by Aug. 1 and will take people on the first-come, first-serve basis.
