TENpod has been housed in the Ode To Roses building since 2003 making us Portland’s first and longest running coworking space and arguably, one of the first in the US. We live right on top of Grand Central Bakery, but were under the radar for the first 10 years or so. Kevin Cavenaugh, owner and primary designer at Guerrilla Development Company, needed a place to work once he made the leap from corporate design to working on his own and TENpod was born! Originally billed as a “co-op”, the intention and idea of the space has always been the same: A light-filled, warm, friendly space to do your work without the distractions of your dogs, kids, or walls at home.
Our Beaumont-Wilshire location right off of Fremont has helped out so many folks that we decided to open up a second location in St. Johns and not only add to the rejuvenation of the area, but give people another space to make their own. This location is more community-oriented and has a large conference room that’s great not only for meetings, but designed intentionally for the art community as well: the space can be used for rehearsals, small video shoots and other arty endeavors.
