Max Bloom and Peter Bloom–yes they are brothers–have opened a new co-working space in Santa Clara called “Ground Floor Silicon Valley.” The 15,000 square foot facility is located at 2030 Duane Avenue, Santa Clara, CA 95054
It’s an interesting facility that has only been open a few weeks. The facility includes about 4,000 square feet of warehouse space that the brothers are interesting in making available to e-commerce companies. From their description:
Ground Floor offers independent professionals, entrepreneurs and small companies open floor plan workspaces, conference rooms, private offices and a training classroom, all with fast Internet connectivity and access to networked copy, printing and scanning-to-email services. In addition, resident businesses can store, ship and receive physical goods in our attached warehouse.
We are interested in holding workshops and some new larger scale events in the facility. We may experiment with a Saturday morning Bootstrappers Breakfast there as well. We remain deleted with the support and amenities that Pacific Business Centers and the Moorpark Hotel have provided us for small classrooms and meeting rooms and will continue to rely on both for private meetings and private workshops. But this new spaces offers us new possibilities that we plan to explore in 2012. It would be a great place to hold a technology focused Meetup in the South Bay.
The only two other co-working facilities I am aware of in the South Bay are
- Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, where we are members, which is unfortunately facing some near term challenges securing funding for some mandatory leasehold improvements)
- Citizen Space San Jose
