At Rock City Centre, we did just that. We dropped the outdated concept of an office and started thinking outside the ‘box’. We believe that optimal work productivity occurs when people have the flexibility to choose when, where, and how they work based on the task at hand. We believe that work is something you do and not a place you commute to. We also believe that personal time can be more enjoyable with like-minded people sharing knowledge, collaborating, and engaging in casual conversations over a cup of coffee.

Providing member value is at the center of everything we do and is our primary motivation. From the cheery, light-filled spaces outfitted with air purification systems and advanced technology infrastructure, to the thoughtful amenities and services—our objective is to anticipate a member’s needs before they have a chance to ask.
