Thrive is a space that allows you to do just that. There is beauty in the design and spacing, so it’s easy to breathe well and produce great work. They have four locations in Atlanta, Downtown Alpharetta, Downtown Milton, and Cumming, but of course, Atlanta is the most populated. If you thrive amidst productive chaos, then Atlanta is the location for you. However, if you are more productive in smaller crowds,  you would be better off at one of the other three locations. Dedicated desks, private offices, and open coworking are offered here, so it creates a collaborative space. Find some time to check out a location near you!
