The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is bringing Outdoor Office BACK to provide a unique co-working experience for all!

Starting September 30, Union Station Plaza will transform into an outdoor co-working community with dedicated conference tables, free High-Speed Gigabit WiFi from celito.net, individual focus spaces, and much more!

So grab your laptop, schedule a meeting, and come work outside at Downtown Raleigh's Free Outdoor Office!
