Who is BLOC

About Us

Vibrant coastal communities with space to work, connect, collaborate,
and grow.

BLOC was the first official coworking space in North County San Diego, fulfilling a need that simply wasn’t there before—a focused space to work remotely, without all the distractions of home. We needed it, and so did our friends … so we built it.

What began in 2014 as a small, organic, entirely self-funded single location, quickly grew into three comfortable, modern spaces. Today we’re in 3 of North County San Diego’s premier coastal communities —Solana Beach, Leucadia, and Carlsbad Village—and we’re going strong with a hyper-local community of members filled with forward-thinking, inspired, creative people.

Coworking isn’t like traditional office space in the corporate world and BLOC offers an alternative and flexible workspace with a laid back culture and an environment that supports both productive work and relationship-building. Our mission has always been to support and enable entrepreneurs and small business owners to grow and contribute to the vibrancy of our local communities. Many of our early ethos remain true today.

Neighborhood Focus

BLOC was designed to fit seamlessly into the coastal areas in which we operate. Our spaces are intentionally intimate, catering to the hyper-focused local, who both lives and works in their community. Members have the added value of the beach, nearby restaurants, gyms, childcare facilities, grocery stores—many of whom we have partnerships with.

Embrace Balance

As the saying goes, “All work and no play…” BLOC believes in the power of work-life balance and continually strives to invest energy in life outside of work. We encourage our members to do the same and with our neighborhood focus, we aim to provide them with the ability to do just that.

Family Spirit

BLOC is run like a family. We support and encourage one another, and make our successes about abundance, so that everyone thrives. We encourage members to bring their families into our spaces, and to our events, and the connections made here are ones that extend well beyond the workday and the workspace.

Connection Based Platform

We believe connections made organically are the strongest. And we strive to provide the ingredients to act as a catalyst, including:

• Collaborative, well-designed spaces.
• Community Managers who act as thoughtful leaders and extensions of our brand.
• Social programming that fosters comfortable introductions.
• The greater BLOC network that members are proud to be a part of.
• People come for the workspace, but stay for the connections they make and community they become a part of.

Have Fun, Be Creative

We’ve always had a desire to bring fun laughter to our work. Because of which, we truly love what we do. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and celebrate each person’s individuality. We’re a humble bunch; real people who aren’t afraid to get scrappy with a ‘whatever it takes‘ mentality. We believe that when people feel creative, they’re more inspired to think outside the box, be less stressed, and overall, happier.
