From WeWork To WePark

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Victor Pontis saw a tweet mocking the cost of living in San Francisco. It said, what if you could work out of a parking spot? Yeah, it may be the only affordable real estate in town. So Pontis paid for a space, and he's charging people 2.25 an hour to work at folding tables. He called his semi-serious company WePark. Thirty people came the first day. If nothing else, the street noise probably helps end unpleasant business calls, right? Hey, I can't hear you. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
