On January 15th we launched our first venture at Park Center – The Frontier. Along with offering free co-working and meeting space on the first floor, the nearly 200,000 sq. ft. building also houses affordable private offices on the third floor. The goal behind The Frontier was to create a place where a diverse array of minds could meet and engage with one another with few boundaries. By offering space that appeals to different sized companies, we hope to attract a variety of occupants throughout the large space.
So far, we’ve seen healthy use of the first floor meeting rooms and co-working space. Each day since the launch new faces crop up to use the wifi and sip the coffee. Our events calendar for the space has also been rapidly filling up. (Seriously, if you’re interested in holding an event, contact us sooner rather than later.)
Up on the third floor, we’ve had some new tenants move in too! Prior to launching The Frontier, there were a few brave souls that stuck it out through construction. Companies like US2020, Entredot, CraZBrain, Triangle ArtWorks, National Inclusion Project, International Services Assistance Fund and the Institute of Play weathered the storm. Now, we’re happy to welcome seven new companies to the mix since opening less than two months ago!
