New Co-working Space Opens in Orange Park of Clay County off of Kingsley and Park Avenues

A new co-working space has opened up in Orange Park. The Nest Co-working was opened by three realtors, who all saw the need for more co-working opportunities in Jacksonville, especially in Orange Park, said Patricia Orange, one of the co-owners. Orange said she and her co-owners, Dulce Lake and Christie Radney, knew of a house that was built in the 1900s that would be an ideal location, and the three women decided to renovate it starting in September. The space is located at 630 Kingsley Avenue.

The Nest has several features to it. The Fly-In is a large area where people can work from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., without having an assigned area. There’s one full-size office — which has already been leased — and two dedicated desk areas, called the Shared Nest and the Dedicated Nest, which both offer 24-hour access. Orange said there is also a conference room, a lounge and a main hub for coffee, supplies and a mail room. The owners are also planning to put in at outside area with picnic tables and opening it up for events like yoga and meditation.

“Running a business is not easy,” Orange said, “so we want to provide additional options.” The idea that the co-work is there to support its members is important, said Orange. If a co-work space is able to help a small business owner cut down on overhead and put that money back into their business, then the co-work is serving its purpose. The space has a rustic feel going in with the idea of a nest, but it is also modern and newly renovated.

Rates start at $100 per month for the Fly-In space. The shared room is $175 per month and the dedicated space is $325. Guests can also come in and work for a day at a rate of $15, until March 15, when the price will go up to $20. Orange said she hopes the space encourages collaboration between small business owners and provides a better environment than just sitting alone in a coffeehouse.

“With this, it’s easier to collaborate and make alliances,” Orange said. “You never know who is sitting next to you.
