COhatch Continues Growth

12 Nov , 2019  

Columbus-based start-up COhatch, a social enterprise offering a new kind of shared work, social, and family space built on community with three locations in Delaware County, continues its aggressive expansion plans with the addition of another 10 locations in Cincinnati, and the inking of its first in-market deal with RPT Realty.

Currently COhatch has 10 locations in Columbus, Dayton and Springfield, Ohio and another 10 planned for Indianapolis and now Cincinnati — representing a tripling of its footprint since the company’s inception in 2016.

Known for repurposing and re-energizing its spaces, COhatch is taking over the former Arhaus site at the heart of RPT’s Deerfield Towne Center that is home to a curated collection of more than 50 national retailers, specialty boutiques, world-class restaurants and entertainment concepts including Whole Foods, Ulta, Aveda, Regal Cinemas and Maplewood Kitchen & Bar.

At its first Cincinnati site in Deerfield Township, COhatch will develop more than 13,000 square feet of co-working and event space giving members ready access to the North side of town, where it is expected to open in the Spring of 2020.

COhatch has set its sights on another nine locations in Cincinnati, many in walkable urban areas requiring revitalization and building restoration that honors the history and architecture of each space. The goal of COhatch is to create a modern community space aimed at fostering innovation, collaboration and community.

According to COhatch founder and CEO Matt Davis, “Our work continues to give local area residents another reason to work, meet, live in the vibrant communities that they love. We see Cincinnati as a perfect fit for our lifestyle concept that brings together entrepreneurs, start-ups and non-profits in a community townhall 2.0 concept where we provide the space, locations, tools and activities to help individuals and organizations flourish. 

The Deerfield Towne Center COhatch will offer a combination of private offices, dedicated desks, game areas, co-working spaces, meeting rooms, large conference rooms, and family-friendly indoor-outdoor event spaces. It also includes a standard set of business amenities (Wi-Fi, desk, fax/mail services).

The meeting and event spaces will be available to the community as well as COhatch members and are suitable for hosting off-site company meetings and celebratory life events.

“We are very excited to welcome COhatch to Deerfield Towne Center,” said Billy Andrews, General Manager of Deerfield Towne Center. “This is truly a unique concept and one we are looking forward to introducing to our community, providing another compelling reason to visit Deerfield.”

In building out its footprint, COhatch has been working with real estate investment trusts (REITs) to innovate by repurposing and revitalizing former retail spaces as more and more shopping malls transition to multi-use properties 

Members can access all COhatch resources and spaces at any of its locations throughout the Midwest.
