79 West Terms and Conditions 


79°West is a flexible and collaborative workspace in the heart of the Mosaic development in Pittsboro, NC. 79°West was designed to encourage members and guests alike to maximize engagement, foster business growth, and spark innovation. Our workspace and innovation hub offers flex/coworking space, private offices, and meeting spaces at various membership and non-membership levels for entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, tech companies, real estate brokers, and other businesses.


Hours of Operation: 79°West is open and accessible from 9 AM - 5 PM Monday - Friday for all members and guests. However, members who have greater access can utilize the space via KISI as needed based on their level of membership.




Kitchen: The kitchen area is designed as a common space. Therefore, as a member you understand that:

  • It is your responsibility to keep the space clean and orderly for the use of fellow members and their guests, including occupying the space briefly, rinsing your dishes, and placing them in the dishwasher(s).

  • The kitchen can be a higher volume area, so it will not always be quiet and peaceful. If you want to work quietly, please utilize other coworking areas in the space that will better suit your needs.

  • The kitchen will occasionally be used for member-related events during normal business hours. Notice will be given to members to ensure everyone is aware of that usage.

  • 79 West will provide complimentary beverages on occasion, which is exclusively for members’ enjoyment (not for guests’ unless otherwise noted). Members are limited to a maximum of 2 12-ounce beverages per event. Any inappropriate use resulting in another member’s discomfort will result in immediate revocation of membership. 79°West does not provide alcohol for members under the age of 21.


  • In order to make sure our space smells pleasant, the refrigerator will be cleaned out regularly. Everything, including containers, will be disposed of if food is rotting, so please make sure to remove your food and/or containers accordingly. Friendly reminders will be sent out routinely.

  • 79°West will sometimes host both public and private events in the kitchen and larger coworking area on weekends and after normal business hours on weekdays. Members are encouraged to attend public events. Members understand that the kitchen may be slightly disrupted in the afternoons for event setup and that coworking members, including dedicated desk members, may need to move to another location while events and/or setup takes place. 79°West will notify members of all events in the space 2 weeks prior to the event and will strive to accommodate members’ needs in the case that they need to move out of the kitchen.


Coffee Station: The coffee bar is for you to enjoy as a 79°West member. 79°West staff will make the first pot of coffee in the morning. After that, we ask that you continue to make coffee for yourself and others as needed. If you don’t know how, don’t worry, we’ll teach you. 


Conference Rooms: Conference rooms may be reserved via the 79°West app (found in the app store on your mobile device) or on the iPads around the space depending on the member’s needs and the availability of the resources. You will be billed for every hour above and beyond your membership level’s allotted amount at 50% off retail conference room price.


***Please note that you are entitled to kindly ask other members to leave the conference room if they are using it during the time slot that you have reserved the room. If you’re uncomfortable doing this, please reach out to the 79°West staff onsite.***


Phone Booths: Our phone booths are designed for phone calls that last 30 minutes or less, not for extended calls or quiet work. They are available on a first come, first serve basis. Please be courteous to other community members and keep phone conversations to a minimum in coworking spaces. Note: The phone booths are soundproof.


Largest Coworking Space: Although there are a number of coworking/flex workspaces, our largest, designated coworking area is on the first floor. It is generally a medium volume workspace. We kindly ask that members keep conversations contained and that they respect the privacy/work of other members. You don’t have to tiptoe and whisper, but the space is not for loud conversations or phone calls either. Please use a conference room, phone booth, or the outdoor patio for longer and/or louder phone calls. We recommend the “Headphone Rule” when interacting with members in the candling room (see below for more information).


Although infrequent, members understand that 79°West will sometimes host public and private events in the larger coworking area on weekends and after 5 PM on weekdays. Members are encouraged to attend public events. Members understand that the Common Area may be slightly disrupted in the afternoons for event setup and that coworking members, including dedicated desk members, may need to move to another location while events and/or event setup takes place. 


Outdoor (Exterior) Patio: Members are encouraged to use our outdoor 79°West patio in a freestyle manner and to move tables around as needed. Please make sure to put things back where you found them and not to block entrances. Be mindful that there may also be light constructions in this area on occasions.

Desks: Members are welcome to eat and drink at coworking desks in the larger space. However, please remember common courtesy and be sure to clean off your desk for other members who will be using the space after you.


Lockers: Lockers are for regular personal storage needs. You can leave computers or other work-related items at 79°West overnight or even a change of clothes for your afternoon run. Lockers are not for overnight storage of old food, wet towels, or stinky running shoes. 


Mailroom: Members are welcome to use 120 Mosaic Blvd, Suite 120 Pittsboro, NC 27312 as their business address. Mail will be sorted by 79°West staff and left at the front desk. Mail older than 1 month will be returned to the sender. Large packages will be left at the front desk and members will be notified when a package arrives. Please come and pick up your packages promptly since we have limited storage space. Due to storage space limitation, packages left at the front desk for more than 2 weeks will be placed in another area onsite and members will need to notify a 79°West staff member in order to access them. Lastly, 79°West will not be liable for lost, damaged, or delayed mail.


Printing & Copying: All membership levels have unlimited black and white printing on demand in the space. Color printing is available upon request via the 79°West team and will cost the member: $.10/page.


Front Desk: 79°West is technically open 7 days/week for members with corresponding membership plans via KISI. However, the 79°West team will only be staffing the space and available 9 AM – 5 PM Monday - Friday to answer questions/solve general troubleshooting issues. If someone is not at the front desk, please call the following number 305.968.0087 or shoot us an email.


Guest(s): Guests of members need to check in at the front desk where they will be issued a password for the wireless network. 79°West asks that members purchase a Day Pass ($50/day) for guests that stay longer than 2 hours in the open coworking space (even after a business meeting). If members have booked out meeting space in one of the conference rooms for the time in which guests are visiting or if members have guests to their office to meet and/or volunteer, then a Day Pass is not required. 


Internet/Telephone Usage: Please do not spam, post or download files that you know or suspect are illegal or to which you do not have the rights. Do not access any other device connected to the 79°West network that you do not have permission to access. Usage of the internet for heavy downloading/uploading is not condoned and any acts which may affect the quality or usage of the service for other users will not be allowed. While 79°West will use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with access to the internet and telephones, you agree that 79°West will not be liable for any damages for failure to furnish or delay in furnishing any equipment or internet service (including telephone and telecommunication services) or for diminution in the quality or quantity of any internet or telecommunications service.


***Coworking members are encouraged to take calls in the phone booths, conference rooms, or outside the space to allow other members to focus on their own work.***


Parking: 79°West does not have dedicated parking spots, but there is a large, unrestricted parking lot adjacent to the building that members, colleagues, and guests can utilize free of charge. These spaces are all first come, first served. 




Conflict Management: Because we are a community of impact leaders first, we ask that if a conflict arises, members first communicate with one another and try to resolve the issue. If an issue arises that cannot be resolved among members, please contact the 79°West team directly and as soon as possible. 


Social & Environmental Responsibility: 79°West is committed to a triple bottom-line philosophy of business with a focus on people, planet, and profit. In order to make a greater impact, we encourage members to promote social and environmental responsibility by:

  • Considering environmental consequences of daily business operations by conserving resources and reducing waste in accordance with the 3 R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle

  • Giving back to the local community by being involved in community service events outside of or through 79°West

  • Adopting a philosophy to strive for a triple bottom-line business and exploring the opportunities and benefits of becoming a social enterprise or certified B Corp


Some simple steps each member can take to fulfill these values are:

  • Buying eco-friendly office materials

  • Being conscious of water usage when in the kitchen by using the dishwasher instead of hand washing, shutting off the faucet when not in use, and taking short showers

  • Being conscious of energy usage when using conference rooms, and individual workspace lighting

  • Composting to reduce the amount of organic materials going into our landfills


Smoking/Vaping: 79°West is a non-smoking/vaping and tobacco-free campus/facility. So, we ask that members who smoke and/or vape respect the privacy and preference of non-smokers. We ask that you only smoke in areas where fumes/vapors will not bother non-smokers. If we see anyone smoking on the 79°West patio or in proximity to the ramp, we will kindly ask you to move somewhere else.


General Coworking Etiquette: The following are guidelines, not hard-and-fast rules. They are a helpful resource for making our space a great place to work:

  • Eat smelly foods in the kitchen/patio area

  • Go light on the perfume or cologne; on the other hand, make sure to wear deodorant

  • Use earphones for music and calls

  • Avoid humming, muttering, singing, tapping and/or whistling

  • Listen to voicemail by receiver (not speaker)


“Headphone Rule” (Suggestion): We recommend the “Headphone Rule” for engaging with other members while working.


Use headphones/ear-buds to denote whether or not you are available to talk:

  • No ear-buds in means you are not working on anything urgent and are able to talk

  • 1 ear-bud in means you are able to briefly answer questions, but need to get stuff done

  • 2 ear-buds in means you are working intensely and do not want to be interrupted


Clean Up After Yourself: We are all adults in the space, so please clean up after yourself. This means washing any dishes you use, reorganizing a desk or meeting room after you use it, leaving the printing area organized and clean after you use it, and by remembering that other members will be using the space as well. We want our space to always stay clean and beautiful so that everyone feels comfortable working here.


You acknowledge that you are using the services at your own free will and decision. You acknowledge that 79°West does not have any liability with respect to your use of the services or any loss of information resulting from such use.


All members and member’s guests are responsible for their own belongings and actions. If an action or inaction causes damage or cost to 79°West, that cost is the responsibility of such member or members.



You release and agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless 79°West and 79°West subsidiaries (whether or not wholly-owned), affiliates, divisions, and their past, present and future officers, directors, managers, agents, shareholders, members, representatives, employees, successors and assigns, jointly and individually, from and against all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, costs (including attorney’s fees), expenses, judgments, fines and penalties based upon or arising out of your negligent actions, errors and omissions, willful misconduct and fraud in connection with the participation in or use of the services.



If any provision or portion of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, in whole or in part, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unaffected thereby and shall remain in full force and effect to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.



79°West strives to cultivate a community of trust. However, 79°West is not responsible for theft of or damage to any of your personal property for any reason. As a user, it is strongly suggested that you carry a renter’s insurance policy to cover your own equipment while using our space. That policy may cover your current residence/office, as well as the premises of 79°West. It is also recommended that you use cable lock systems on any electronic device and use the provided lockers for storage.


Video and Photo Release

Photos and videos may be taken during events and in the café, kitchen and bar and common areas including the coworking space. We respect the privacy of private office suites and conference rooms, and photos and video will not be taken in those rooms unless verbal permission is received from members. We will also try our best to give members warning if photos or videos are to be taken in the café, multi-purpose rooms or common areas during business hours.


I give 79°West full permission for the use in advertising and other lawful purposes of picture, image, voice, actions, video footage and other personally identifiable information and waive all rights of privacy or compensation, which I may have in connection with such use of pictures, images, voices, actions, video footage and other personally identifiable information associated therewith.


Security Cameras

79°West maintains security cameras in the space to help maintain the safety of the premises, its staff, members and guests.
