ATLANTA — Atlanta’s female professionals, entrepreneurs, working moms and stay-at-home moms have a chic new shared workspace in Buckhead, designed specifically with them in mind. The first co-working, social space of its kind in Atlanta, Eleanor’s Place is a sophisticated escape for members to work, relax and collaborate without the distractions of everyday life.
The professionally appointed space includes a reception area, living room, kitchen, co-working area, first lady’s office, private booth offices and a conference room – all carefully crafted and developed for women. With gorgeous cool blue and grey accents, hardwood flooring and luxurious quartz countertops, the elegance of Eleanor’s Place will inspire women to dream bigger.
One of the noteworthy differentiators of this haven for women is the curated collection of member amenities. Work areas are adorned with rustic sconces, sophisticated artwork from local female artists and fresh, seasonal flowers.
Membership amenities include fresh full-bodied coffee, cold-pressed juices, spa water and rejuvenating snacks. High-speed Wi-Fi, printers, scanners and productivity essentials are complimentary. Eleanor’s Place offers a membership model, giving women access to its meeting spaces to host educational evenings, social events and private functions.
“I continued to hear women, both professionals and stay-at-home mothers of busy families, share that they were seeking a sanctuary to work, brainstorm, network and recharge,” said Jennifer Morgan, creator and founder of Eleanor’s Place. “My vision is for Eleanor’s Place is to empower women – whether they are setting big goals and achieving the unthinkable or checking details off their to-do list – through a space that will welcome and inspire.”
Fondly named after Eleanor Roosevelt, it was really Jennifer Morgan’s mother who gave her the gumption and courage to begin this venture. At age 40, Jennifer’s mother began law school. This led to a successful thirty-year career until finally retiring from the coveted position as Deputy Disciplinary Counsel for the South Carolina Supreme Court – testament to the fact that women can always reinvent themselves and their careers.
Jennifer, a former CNN journalist and national correspondent for NBC News, has dedicated the past 12 years to raising her family, before finally answering the entrepreneurial call to start Eleanor’s Place.
Eleanor’s Place members have access to noteworthy events, leadership seminars and activities that push the envelope to help members ignite their creativity and reach their full potential.
As members, women can use the space during off-hours to host their own private events, including book clubs, awards banquets, philanthropic parties, trunk-shows and other gatherings. Females interested in becoming a member can apply by visiting bit.ly/EleanorsPlaceApply.
