COhatch and the City of Westerville are teaming up for a big job.
The coworking business is collaborating with the city to preserve the historic Armory building located at 240 S. State Street in Westerville. The property will be repurposed into a coworking space, a start-up incubator, an event space, and a food and entertainment destination all in one.
The project is part of the City of Westerville’s plan to expand its historic Uptown District.
“The Armory renovation is a prime example of the collaborative work we do with local municipalities to re-envision and redevelop critical and vacant real estate to support community renewal and expansion, while preserving the beauty and history of the location,” said Matt Davis, co-founder and CEO of COhatch. “This location will be a new flagship for Columbus and a key part of the overall network for our members to utilize for business and social use.”
COhatch is re-envisioning community spaces in collaboration with local municipalities. The spaces are intended to be a place for community members to gather, access services, participate in activities, and more.
“The vision for the COhatch collaboration on the Armory renovation begins a public process to repurpose a space to benefit our residents, workforce and visitors,” said Westerville City Manager Monica Irelan. “This is an opportunity to introduce a destination-oriented, mixed-use development on the southern edge of our thriving, historic Uptown. COhatch is the right company to help identify collaborative opportunities that advance private industry revitalization and fulfill our promise to the Westerville community.”
COHatch currently has 26 locations open or under development. Beyond Central Ohio, the company is expanding to Cleveland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Tampa. For more information about upcoming COhatch projects, you can visit their website here.
