Fast Facts: New Activated Spaces Program Welcomes Its First Tenants

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

After successfully launching 26 shops, filled more than 25,000 square feet of previously vacant space, and created 43 jobs under the Pop-Up Shop program, Activated Spaces rolled out a new program, supporting three startup companies under Activated Office. This new program focuses on activating empty office space and providing entrepreneurs an opportunity to test out downtown as their business address. Liberty Tower (120 W. Second St) recently renovated outdated, traditional office space on the eighth floor to host the following three businesses in a non-traditional, open, collaborative environment:

  • Gemini Studios – Gemini Studios is a photography/videography business. They offer high quality and professionally crafted sessions with the convenience of a local studio.
  • Upsourced Accounting – Upsourced Accounting is a growing, technology-focused, full-service accounting firm. They specialize in servicing venture-backed start-up businesses and professional service firms.
  • Physis Films – Physis Films produces and manages feature films and TV programs.

Activated Office tenants received a short-term lease option for downtown office space, a small stipend to help offset startup costs, and a below market lease rate. In addition, each business was offered 10 hours of free legal services from Pickrel, Schaeffer & Ebeling and 15 hours of free marketing support from either Catapult Creative or Creative Fuse.
