Worthington-based COhatch, a 2016 startup that rents co-working, events and office space to businesses and individuals, facilitated several expansions in 2018. In April, the company opened the Madery, a “maker and market space” in of the basement of the Kilbourne Memorial Building, 752 High St. in Worthington, where the Library also is based. In July, COhatch announced the Pub at 1554 Polaris Parkway in Columbus’ Polaris Fashion Place, and in December opened the Hub, a flexible retail and meeting space inside the mall.

The company also announced plans for three other locations during the year: the Newsstand at 18. E. William St. in Delaware, the Overlook at 1735 W. Lane Ave. in Upper Arlington, the Market at 101 S.
