The grand opening of WingSpace, a large business office complex, is providing enterprising young professionals with office space, equipment and resources that otherwise might not be accessible.
Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli and several Prescott City Council members praised the spacious facility as “… another way of demonstrating that young entrepreneurs are welcome and wanted in the community.”
Mengarelli gave founder Melanie Banayat a certificate to celebrate the opening.
Mayor Pro Tem Billie Orr said, “As a City, Prescott welcome millennials and their creativity.”
Prescott Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Sheri Heiney said WingSpace was a welcomed new chamber member.
WingSpace is the culmination of a longtime vision of founder Banayat. She said it took more than 18 months to find a central location that would lend itself to such a dissimilar mix of businesses that partner in co-sharing office space.
Located at 371 Garden St., Suite A — just off Miller Valley Road — WingSpace will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. However, members have 24-hour access to facilities, Banayat said.
Those partnering in the diverse office range from writers, graphic designers, photographers and videographers to life and health coaches, a real estate broker, a French teacher, a hypnotherapist and a CPA. Also partnering are the owners of alocal magazine, a brain-training firm, and some off-site remote workers who handle assignments for firms located outside the Quad City area.
“It’s an eclectic group of talented people who have access to space and business resources,” Banayat said.
Among those resources are individual offices, conferences rooms, some office furniture, telephone conferencing equipment, an upscale printer, Wi-Fi, and other items that will help the partners succeed in their business enterprises.
