CRANFORD, NJ – Members of the Cranford business community came together to celebrate the grand opening of Cranford Works on Wednesday evening.

Cranford Works is a coworking space designed to be rented on a semi-permanent basis. The office space is located at 186 North Avenue E., minutes from the train station and the Garden State Parkway.

“I wanted to do a coworking space like WeWork in New York City,” contractor, owner and designer Steven Needle said. “Every time I go to a new city I look for a space like that. The idea is to have people feel connected.”

The space features seven private offices, a conference room, a reception/waiting area, lounge and kitchen. Printing, coffee, water, WiFi and HDTV are offered as well.

“I wanted to be really creative and make a space that could be an incubator for all different businesses,” Needle said. “I want people to be a part of the vibrant Cranford community while also building a business. Cranford has great restaurants, access to train stations, and I think this is such an up-and-coming way to work. Instead of working alone in your office or home, why not work with people, have coffee and have a social life outside of your friendships and your home?”

The offices are rented on a yearly basis, Needle said. In addition to the amenities, the space also offers keycard access, storage and 24/7 video surveillance.

“There’s a quality of life about Cranford that’s so wonderful,” Needle said. “Don’t miss it by spending hours on trains or in traffic.”
