What is a Satellite Center?

The Satellite Centers is developing a network of comfortable, connected, professional office and workspace centers in community commercial districts. The Satellite Centers offer a mix of private offices, cubicles, meeting rooms and drop-in (café) space available 24/7 to members, who include telecommuters, solopreneurs, consultants, therapists, grad students and startups. Satellite Centers operate via memberships, but welcome walk-ins during regular business hours. Plans are always flexible, so you don’t have to make long commitments to have a great place to work. Greenhouse Coworking is a collaboration between CMAP & The Satellite Centers.

How much does it cost?

Pricing varies depending on the type of space you want (café, workstation, private office or conference room) and the amount of time you want it (for an hour, by the day, month-to-month or 24/7). Because pricing varies from location to location, we recommend contacting the Satellite closest to you or checking out its Facility Page under Locations on this website. Satellites also welcome walk-ins during regular business hours.
