Do agencies pay less to lease at the Center?
One of the goals of the Center is to provide a low-cost home for nonprofits, so that services available to the community are based on community need and not on the ability of agencies to pay the current market rates for leases. The Center thus keeps lease rates as low as is possible to meet mortgage debt payments, building operating costs and administrative costs to meet the mission.
Overall the lease rate savings are 20% – 40% lower than the market rate for comparable spaces. Numbers of amenities which would cost extra on the open market are included for free, such as conference room space.
Can anyone rent Together Center conference rooms?
Conference rooms are leased to off-campus organizations at times which do not conflict with campus usage. Primarily these are offered to nonprofit organizations. Call the administration office at (425) 869-6699 for information on availability and rates.
