NORTH KINGSTOWN – The Gateway Offices at Quonset Business Park, officially opened in August, are now fully leased to 16 Rhode Island businesses, the Quonset Development Corporation announced Oct. 11.
The Gateway Offices – owned and operated by the Quonset Development Corporation – provides office space for startups or other small businesses, the corporation said, with the option of short-term leases, including a month-to-month option. The facility includes wireless high-speed Internet access, shared break areas that include an outdoor courtyard, a conference room, multiple restrooms and a reception staff to field phone calls and visitors for tenants.
“This initiative will help grow more jobs and spur economic growth,” said Steven J. King, managing director of the Quonset Development Corporation, in a release. “We look forward to getting started on Phase II of the project in the next several months.”
King said that Quonset Development Corporation is already planning a second office building in the same area as the first, which may include several large suites in addition to smaller offices similar to the spaces offered at the fully leased Gateway Offices. The project is scheduled to go up for approval at a meeting of the corporation’s board of directors on Oct. 22.
If the project is approved, Quonset Development Corporation expects to open the new office building next summer, King said.
