COhatch to Open New Build in Historic Dublin
Coworking space COhatch is getting ready for the grand opening of their ninth Central Ohio space in Dublin next month, in what will be the company’s first new build.
Sitting on the Scioto River on the historic Dublin side of the Pedestrian Bridge, the new COhatch location preserves some historic elements while adding in some new, allowing the company to be more creative than they have in previous builds.
The new build will have three floors, with lots of natural light and a great view of the river and Bridge Park.
“A lot of the offices have really pretty views from their office space,” said Jenna Dray, Columbus market leader for COhatch.
The new location will also have a podcast room, game room and event spaces, including an outdoor space with a fire bit and beer garden patio in partnership with North High Brewing. Dray envisions COhatch members transitioning from the workday to the weekend pretty easily.
The space provides many of the same amenities as other COhatch locations, including a newer option to add on a membership at 24-hour fitness center Mesh Fitness in Dublin. Members will have access to the center’s golf simulator for team outings and other events as well.
Dublin has been on COhatch’s list for some time, but the company was looking for the right space and fit. When that became available, near the former home of Brazenhead, they jumped on the opportunity.
“It [is] really special to be able to be part of historic Dublin,” said Dray. “If you ask our founders, they’ve been very excited to be in the Dublin community.”
Dray said it’s great to be able to bring more workforce and more activity to the historic side of Dublin, with Bridge Park just across the way.
Members like Performance Auto Group, Bravura Advertising and Design, and the Women’s Small Business Accelerator will soon call the Dublin location home, and other nonprofits may soon follow suit. COhatch is launching a scholarship program for nonprofits to have access to the same benefits as other members. And Dublin nonprofits are encouraged to apply.
The Dublin location will open in early October, while a ribbon-cutting and all-day celebration is planned for Oct. 16.
“I’m excited to see what opportunities arise for COhatch and for the city of Dublin,” said Dray.
