Spark Baltimore is going down a floor to create more space for entrepreneurs.

The coworking and office space plans to double in size after an expansion within its building at Power Plant Live! The announcement was made at a Thursday event to mark Spark’s one-year anniversary by Jonathan Cordish, a principal at the Cordish Companies, which developed the space.

Currently, Spark Baltimore is made up of coworking and office space on the third floor of the building at 8 Market Place, and offices on the fourth floor. The expanded space will be a mix of offices and coworking on the second floor. Community Manager Shervonne Cherry said they will also add to common areas and networking space. It’s slated to open in May 2017.

“We’re thrilled to continue investing in our city and its growing entrepreneurial base,” Cordish said.

Since officially opening in early 2016, the space added more private offices to meet that initial demand over shared desks. It’s become a key point on Baltimore’s tech map with companies like Fearless, Proscia and Meta Studios, but also houses companies from a variety of other industries. It’s also been a sign of the new entrepreneurial energy that leaders want to bring into the city’s business district.

The event brought out officials like Mayor Catherine Pugh, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Secretary of Commerce Mike Gill.

“I’m looking forward to the second, third and fourth year,” Pugh said.
