104 N. Main Street
The Hotspot coworking space provides an open space for individuals or groups to work in a professional environment, with access to a secure internet connection, a printer and other office amenities, such as a conference room, break area, and coffee stations.
Hotspot is the product of brainstorming efforts by Danielle Holstine and Jennifer Shorts, both members of the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce. They recognized internet services still did not reach all local residents, but the rapidly changing world moving online was requiring a reliable connection for all who wished to remain viable in the current business environment. They saw a need to provide a service like this for area entrepreneurs, small businesses, and individuals who either do not have a reliable connection at home or would like to have a separate space from home in which to work. In addition to an open workspace, Hotspot can also be rented for leadership development, birthdays, and public use. Future plans include notary services and displaying a rotating gallery of local artisan work.
The location at 104 N. Main Street was chosen “to drive improvement in the downtown area,” said Jeff Whittle, President of the Chamber. The building space itself was in need of huge renovations, including ripping up floors and tearing down walls. Construction was supported by Kilgore Construction. As part of the “Better Together, Deer Park, WA” economic and business initiative for the City of Deer Park, Hotspot benefited from the contributions of many talented and generous locals. Below is a list of those who either partnered and/or donated to the making of the Hotspot.
