Montrose Executive Plaza designed to serve small firms, nonprofits

Posted: Wednesday, February 29, 2012 2:00 am

The spacious building at 15 West Main St. that formerly housed Ashley’s Furniture will serve as the new home for the Montrose Executive Plaza, a structure that will offer temporary office and co-working space for nonprofit organizations and small businesses.

It was the spaciousness that piqued owner Pat Byrd’s interest in the space. Byrd saw the space as a good candidate for her idea of providing work, meeting and conference facilities at an affordable rate to businesses or organizations that lacked the resources to move into larger facilities.

Byrd, who has resided with her family in Montrose for 14 years, has spent a considerable amount of time traveling and telecommuting as a data/network engineer. As a result, she noted that “shared co-working space is becoming more commonplace in the millennium of our global workforce.” It is a way to offset the expense of leasing a full-size office space, she said.
