WORTHINGTON, OHIO, Sept. 22, 2021 – COhatch, a company with a new approach to shared work, social and family space, will expand the 26,000-square-foot-footprint it has in Noblesville and Broad Ripple to nearly 70,000 sq. ft. with its scheduled openings of four locations in Central Indiana in 2022. The company is responding to the increased desire to work close to home yet have access to office spaces across the state, region and country when needed.
COhatch is building off its successful launches of its first two locations, which already have waitlists for private offices.
“Especially now, as people continue to navigate evolving hybrid work models, we want to provide additional close-to-home and city-center options so there’s something to meet everyone’s preferences,” said COhatch co-founder and CEO Matt Davis.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett lauds the effort.
“As the last year has shown us, the work environment is rapidly evolving,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said. “COhatch’s expansion in Indianapolis will allow more local workers to thrive in this ever-changing environment.”
COhatch Zionsville Under Construction
COhatch launched construction on its Zionsville facility earlier this month. The 11,035 sq. ft. facility will offer 25 private offices and 100+ coworking seats when it is completed in early 2022.
The space, located at 75 N. Main St. in the former Nancy Noel studio, is being reconstructed to help meet the growing demand for convenient access to community, collaboration and flexible workspace close to home. It will include patio space where COhatch members and community members alike can enjoy food and beverage options from feature partner North High Brewing.
Making Old Things New Again in Carmel
COhatch Carmel will be located at 38 E. Main St. in the former Old Town antique store. Construction at the facility will begin this fall, and the facility is expected to open in Spring 2022.
The 11,300 sq. ft. facility will offer 30 private offices and 75+ coworking seats when it is completed. COhatch Carmel also will feature an overlook event space that can host 20+ people for private meetings or social gatherings.
The event space will be available to the community for personal events after work hours and on weekends. Rental fees will fund COhatch scholarships to local non-profit organizations.
“We’re excited to have a space like this that we can open up for corporate meetings, large family gatherings or non-profit organization events,” Indianapolis Market Leader Grerayle Walton said. “It’s just one more example of how we’re working to cultivate connectivity through spaces that have both work and social functionality.”
Milking a Great Opportunity
COhatch also plans to begin construction on its Polk Stables facility this winter. The facility at 1533 Lewis St. is the former location of Polk Sanitary Milk Company, the Indianapolis-renowned dairy company.
Unique to the Indianapolis market, Polk Stables also will include a maker space and some artist studios, where makers and creators can produce and sell goods in a comfortable and collaborative environment.
“The maker space will be modeled after our Worthington, Ohio, offering, where the community is able to access creative projects they otherwise may not have been able to,” said Davis. “It’s a novel concept, and we expect that it will be an ever-changing space where creatives can express all sides of themselves and showcase their talents.”
The 21,741 sq. ft. facility, which will include 38 private offices and 100+ coworking seats, is expected to open in Spring 2022. It also will house North High Brewing and include patio space.
COhatch Circle Center, slated to open in Spring 2022 at 49 W. Maryland St., will be the company’s first downtown Indianapolis location. City-center visitors, conference attendees and locals all will be invited to access the facility’s 21 private offices and coworking seats in its nearly 8,000 sq. ft. of space.
COhatch Circle Center will bring new life to the former Granite City Brewing in the Circle Center Mall. It will include offerings from feature partner North High Brewing and an expansive speakeasy, including “The Crown Jewel” lounge.
Members at any Indianapolis location will enjoy access to the company’s other Indianapolis locations as well as those in Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Springfield, Ohio and those in St. Petersburg, West Tampa, and Lakeland, Florida, as they open.
The four new COhatch facilities come in addition to the company’s two existing Indianapolis locations in Noblesville at 13110 Harrell Parkway in Hamilton Town Center and in Broad Ripple at 6151 Central Ave. The additions will bring COhatch’s total locations open or under development to 31, with total square footage of more than 400,000. The company aims to have 500 locations in 50 communities across the U.S. by 2030.
