LONG ISLAND CITY — A new co-working site is set to open in Queens this fall, where workers will be able to bring their dogs and enjoy coffee brewed by a barista.

Regus, which runs shared offices in cities across the globe, will open a 34,211-square-foot co-working center called SPACES on the third floor of the Falchi Building at 47th Avenue and 31st Street in Long Island City.

The offices will be dog-friendly and open to companies of all sizes. Clients can customize their space, whether they're looking for group work sites or "quiet areas to think," according to Regus. The offices will be open 24 hours a day and will offer concierge services, as well as a cafe with coffee and healthy snacks.

"The vision behind SPACES is to redefine the very nature of work by providing a wide range of workspaces where people can come to network and collaborate in thoughtfully designed spaces, attend social events and participate in shared learning summits," Regus said in a statement.

"It's a dynamic workspace to develop game changing ideas, build relationships and focus on work."

Memberships at the co-working site will start at $225 a month. It expects to open in late October.

SPACES will join a number of shared offices which opened in western Queens in recent years, including a WeWork location that's being planned at the Studio Square building in nearby Astoria.

The Falchi Building is a 658,049-square-foot former factory that's been renovated as a mixed-use office building, and includes several food production sites. Its tenants include Juice Press and Doughnut Plant, and the Astoria Distilling Company plans to open a tasting room there later this year.
