Icon Offices, a new business that provides space for professionals and entrepreneurs, has opened in New Orleans’ central business district.
Icon has 50 individual private offices in The Exchange Centre on Gravier Street, ranging from 150 to 200 square feet. The spaces are suitable for professionals, and feature a shared reception area, a break room/kitchen, gym and meeting rooms. Offices rent for between $500 and $750 a month, depending on the view. The cost includes utilities, said Rachel Sonn, Icon’s owner and operator. Part-time offerings, which include blocks of conference room time and mail service, are available.
Sonn said she decided to open Icon because the only companies in New Orleans offering shared office space were national real estate firms that were “very corporate and very expensive.”
“I wanted to offer the local version of serviced office space,” Sonn said in a news release.
