    Fresh Face: Aspire WorkLabs

    Located on the corner of Queen and Orange Streets, Aspire WorkLabs has opened office space designed for the modern worker. The space is co-located with Aspire Ventures, a venture firm that specializes in healthcare startups. When the pandemic sent employees home, the third-story office space became vacant.


    “Since COVID, many employees are working from home with few returning to the office,” said Victoria Abadir, Operations Manager at Aspire WorkLabs. “We had this beautiful office space on our third floor that we found to be quite empty and thought we needed to repurpose it.”


    From private offices that accommodate small teams of up to six people to private desks with locked storage, Aspire WorkLabs offers solutions for individuals and small teams. For people not ready to sign up for monthly or annual commitments, workers can book day passes to use flexible desks, common spaces, and conference rooms.


    “We’re looking to empower individuals and small businesses to grow and thrive, not just professionally, but as part of our community as well. We want to build something that nurtures creativity, collaboration, and social impact, beyond just providing the workspace,” Victoria said.


    In addition to providing coworking space, Aspire WorkLabs will host opportunities for education, mentorship, and networking with local professionals and experienced entrepreneurs. With a commercial-grade kitchen onsite, folks can hire outside caterers to elevate any event or rent the kitchen by the hour for cooking classes or photoshoots. The office space is also connected to the Prince Street parking garage, giving members easy access and peace of mind.


    “We’re excited to bring this new workspace to Lancaster City as a place to gather professionals, creatives, and people involved in social change together in one space—whether they be monthly members or day visitors,” Victoria said. “We see this as an opportunity to give back to Lancaster City.”
