Christy Alexander has moved WorkSmart to 237 Glen St. in Downtown Glens Falls.
Alexander is the sole owner of WorkSmart, and the anchor tenant for the historic 1914 building.
The structure most recently housed the downtown branch of TD Bank.
WorkSmart was previously housed in the Homestead Funding building on Warren Street near the traffic circle. When Alexander was initially searching for a new space for WorkSmart, 237 Glen St was for sale. She said she immediately saw the possibilities. With the vast amount of space, she felt the need to further validate the business idea before risking the investment.
“After testing the market and gaining traction, I began to dream bigger,” said Alexander. “We began to explore the opportunity to bring new life to the old lobby.”
V&H Construction was the general contractor on the renovations.
Alexander said planning the new space was a collaborative effort, with WorkSmart members giving feedback and insight throughout the process.
Alexander said the new space will impact existing and prospective clients tremendously.
“Offering fully furnished private offices with a premier business address will elevate our clients’ businesses,” she said. “Frictionless access to client meeting spaces makes it easy to project a professional image to clients. Creative spaces make these kinds of resources accessible with minimal investment.
