Seattle is now home to dozens of coworking spaces, but in West Seattle, West Seattle Coworking stands alone. Separated from downtown by a bridge, and traffic, the small but mighty coworking space is the only coworking space in the area and a go-to resource for the area’s independent workforce.
The space has been around for years, but in May of 2017, Crystal and Rosario (Ross) Bevilacqua bought the space and have made it their own. Ross, a remote worker, was a longtime member of West Seattle Coworking. When the opportunity to purchase it came up, he and Crystal jumped at the chance.
I chatted with Ross about revitalizing the coworking space, the people who make up the West Seattle Coworking community, and his unique perspective as both a remote worker and the space owner. Here are the highlights of our conversation.
