The co-working phenomenon COhatch is trying something new.
Long known for its innovative approach to the concept of co-working, the company is expanding to include a wider range of offerings – and it is launching the concept at Polaris.
COhatch has Delaware County-located facilities in downtown Delaware and as a part of the outdoor extension at Polaris Fashion Place Mall. The 13,000 square-foot addition will provie room for “free life events” – weddings, corporate events, seminars, workshops – even kitchen units – at no extra cost to members.
The space will also feature a bar presented with local partner North High Brewing.
“We want to do everything we can to promote and grow our members in and out of work,” said Matt Davis, co-founder and CEO of COhatch. “We’ve got the ‘work’ and ‘meet’ parts of our tagline down, and now we’re continuing to expand on the ‘live’ aspect of what we can offer to our members and the greater community.”
The lifestyle perks don’t stop there. COhatch already has a beach house, Sandy Pants, in Anna Maria Island, Florida and is adding more vacation properties to its roster for members to book at discounted rates. They also offer tons of other unique amenities for members to enjoy outside of work, including sports simulators, movie theaters, rock climbing walls, gym memberships and local small business discounts with more offerings coming soon.
To support all of COhatch’s offerings, they’ve built a new digital platform called COhatch+, which is launching in May of this year. The website will connect all COhatch locations and members, providing even more resources, like Neighborhood groups for people with common interests, and Marketplace, where people can find local businesses and discounts, and businesses can list themselves for others to discover.
“While we started out as just a coworking space, we’ve evolved and will continue to evolve far beyond that,” said Davis. “We’re finally achieving our greater goal of becoming an extension of our members’ homes – giving them access to business resources while improving their personal lives too.”
