The company plans to have the Old City location up and running in early 2019, with 33,357 square feet of space up for grabs.
For a bit of context on size, the upcoming space on the fifth floor of The Bourse sits somewhere between the company’s inaugural Philly location on 20th and Market (at around 25,000 square feet) and its massive hub at 16th and Market (closer to 58,000 square feet.)
“The renovation of The Bourse and its Marketplace concept offers MakeOffices members unmatched access to Philadelphia’s latest food, beverage, and retail experiences,” MakeOffices CEO Zach Wade said in a press release. “The Marketplace will be a natural extension of our co-working space, which is currently being designed to celebrate the historical nature of The Bourse and will serve as an incredible resource to Philadelphia’s burgeoning business, start-up and entrepreneurial community.”
The location at The Bourse and the coworking company have some history. See, the building is owned by MakeOffices’ investor MRP Realty, which led a $14-million funding round in MakeOffices (then known as UberOffices) in 2015. The Bourse location, which was part of MakeOffices initial plans for Philly, was scrapped in 2016.
However, Wade — back then a principal at MRP — did say the location could be rehashed after the Bourse’s food court got a makeover. Now, with some 30 vendors slinging everything from gourmet coffee to tasty Filipino-style lechon, it looks like the timing is right.-30-
