WORK THE
WAY YOU WANT

HELLO! We’re glad you found us. Commoncove was recently launched as a brand of cowork spaces for suburban and near urban workers. Our first location, at Chelsea’s Admiral’s Hill Marina, is Greater Boston’s first coworking space on the waterfront.  We provide the ideal “home office” by being close to home but not in your home – a dynamic workspace with both dedicated and floating desks, shared worktables, phone booths, meeting rooms – all just steps from the harbor.  We offer flexible, affordable, memberships to accommodate your particular schedule and budget.

Just give a call to schedule a tour of the space today.

About

Our Story

FAQs

Close to Home. Not in Your Home. Working alone often results in loneliness, distractions that reduce productivity, bad work habits and possibly marriage counseling. As technology enables work to encroach on your life, it’s important to maintain a work/life separation, “Close to Home, Not in Your Home” creates that separation.

Driven By Sustainability. Long commutes are unhealthy, decrease employee retention, and do harm to our environment. Putting workspaces in the suburbs, and closer to YOU, supports our mission of reducing the carbon footprint of our members by ONE BILLION commuting miles a year.

Be a Coworker, Not a “Coffeeshopper.” You’re a mobile worker. You’ve discovered career freedom – with your laptop and phone you can work from anywhere. So stop competing for an open outlet at the local coffee shop. For the cost of a latte and a pastry per day, you could be working out of a space thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of mobile workers and their clients. It’s time to “level up” and graduate from the coffee shop.

Coworking 101

What is Coworking?

Coworking is a concept created to satisfy the needs
 of millions of mobile knowledge workers (workers who “think” for a living.)
 Many of these knowledge workers have suddenly found themselves untethered to a desk and thus, are free to work where, when and how they choose. It’s great when they can take advantage of their technology driven freedom, but not so great if they find themselves working at home or alone and missing out on the social interaction, energy, excitement and fun that coworkers bring.

Before coworking, mobile knowledge workers really only had two ways to avoid having to work from home; squatting in coffee shops or paying for an executive suite.

Coffee shops provide good opportunities for social observation but limited opportunities for social interaction (customers behave like one person islands) and zero business support – often not even a plug, much less the ability to print, scan or copy documents.

Executive suites offer limited opportunity for social observation and social interaction, while mobile workers often pay for too much expensive business support that may not be necessary to their needs.

Coworking to the rescue!  Coworking offers exactly the right mix of oportunities for social observation, social interaction and business support for today’s mobile knowledge workers.

Our Story

Coworking is cheaper than “working” from home for free.

Workers who find themselves home alone (with too many distractions to list) are far less productive, which makes “free” a career threatening illusion. Joining a coworking space is a great investment in your future as it increases productivity, income, self-confidence and work/life separation while reducing marriage/relationship and career risk.

Is Coworking right for you?

It’s not about whether you’re cool enough (because you definitely are). Members with passion, energy and enthusiasm are the backbone of a coworking community. Our job is to help you, mobile knowledge workers, make the best choice (coffee shop, cowork space or executive suite) to maximize your productivity and find the best fit.

Topsfield’s own Whoo(pie) wagon will be down here from 7:30-8:30 offering their homemade take on the New England phenomenon (and Pennsylvania Amish tradition). It is a cookie, a pie, or a cake? Why ask me? Come down and find out for yourself.

Oh, and don’t forget to hit neighboring Mystic Brewery and fill your growlers beforehand – we’ll put em on ice for you. We’ve got the popcorn covered but bring a couple of bucks to buy a couple of whoopee pies. Or a few. No judging here. Note they’re three bucks a pop, or two for five.

Location

Located on the Waterfront in the beautiful Admirals Hill area of Chelsea, we’re minutes from Boston, Cambridge, Logan airport and just steps from the water. Needless to say, we really like where we are.

Directions from Boston – We recommend the scenic route

93N to Rt. 1 Tobin Bridge. Take the very first exit over the Tobin for Beacon Street. Take a right at the base of the ramp, right on Broadway. Another right at Commandant’s Way at the end of Broadway.   Left when you see our sign, after the waterfront park and tennis courts, before the Jefferson at Admiral’s Hill apartments.

Common Cove
305 Commandants Way
Admiral’s Hill Marina
Chelsea, MA 02150

Our coworkers don’t compete…they collaborate.

We’re proud to host a community of self-motivated, creative and critical thinkers who are passionate about what they do. They’re supportive of each other and celebrate everyone’s success.

Who are they, you ask? Web designers, journalists, realtors, start-ups, graphic designers, architects, and marketers extraordinaire – you name it. It can be a moving target, but whatever the day you’ll always be rubbing elbows (figuratively) with independent, open-minded people like yourself.

Christian Williams

Sr. Art Director

Raised on a steady diet of Godzilla and Bob Ross, Christian spent his early years as an egg gathering, bmx riding, raft making, side-arm throwing hick who would eventually become the basis for Stephan Hawkings ‘A Brief History of Time”

Always the career optimist, he never shied away from changing occupation and served time as a plumber, writer, computer consultant, carpenter, and bartender. Lured by the promise of ping pong tables, world travel and beer, he decided to try his hand as an art director. Like a phoenix he rose to the highest heights of anonymity. Since then he’s been building, making, and shaping people’s perceptions for some of the world’s most successful and pioneering brands.

Matthew Jones

Life Coach

What is the work I do as a Life Coach? Well, in particular I help young people prepare for life transitions – from College to life, or high school to college. It seems these days there is a lot of preparation, academically and intellectually for the next step, but there does not seem to be much emotional or spiritual preparation. This can lead to large amounts of existential stress, the stress of wondering who I am and what am I going to do with my life? What is my purpose? I help young people prepare the totality of themselves, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually for the next step, whatever it may be!

Lili von Baeyer

Artist & Entrepreneur

Lili has a rich history in fortune telling and floor tile modeling.  As she hones her skills for both, she often wonders how she can combine the two to make a truly unique experience for her clients.

Some of her most successful acts have been in the Barnum and Bailey traveling road show and the Home Edition of Boston Magazine.  You may recognize her from HGTV’s “Tiles and Tarot”, PBS’s “Tile Me Your Story and I’ll Tile You Mine”, or perhaps as Rudy Huxtable’s adorable yet feisty best friend in ABC’s classic “The Cosby Show.”

 

Ashley

Outdoor Education Consultant

Ashley has a passion for exploration and adventure. She dreams big, at least, as big as the mountains around her, and her dreams are to give all young people an opportunity to experience and love the outdoors.  She works with schools, camps and private organizations to create the most beneficial programs to encourage a “passion for the outdoors” for the youth they cater to.  Ashley brings a zest for life, spunk, positive outlook on life and humanity, and undeniable energy to each project she works on.
