A new kind of life is being breathed into Main Street with the opening of COHatch’s third Indianapolis-area location. Founded in Columbus, Ohio, COHatch is an integrated space that allows for small businesses, entrepreneurs and nonprofits find a space of their own in a professional location, while also providing a place for the community to gather.
“The goal is to create spaces where people can work, meet and live,” says Olivia Ortmann, the Zionsville COHatch community leader. “We want this location to be comfortable for people to do their day-to-day work for their businesses, while becoming more like their own space.”
The premise behind COHatch is to offer private offices, large co-working spaces and a unique aspect to each location. Every location is different, with Zionsville’s location serving as the home to North High Brewing’s first Indianapolis-area location. North High Brewing is a brewpub based out of Columbus, Ohio, that has partnered with COHatch on other Ohio locations. The Zionsville location will offer a large patio, serve lunch and dinner, and will be open on weekends, later this spring.
“It’ll be a family-friendly, affordable spot on Main Street, which will add a lot of life to the corner,” Ortmann says.
The Zionsville COHatch is based in the old Nancy Noel building at 75 North Main Street, featuring 10,000 square feet of space. The design team worked to complement the beloved architecture with stained glass windows while adding some fresh, modern touches. “Our design team does a great job of keeping the local feel to something, while bringing a new and fresh design,” Ortmann says.
The building will feature 26 private offices available for memberships, three different meeting rooms that can fit about six people each, plus a larger co-working space on the lower level that can seat about 40 to 50 people. The larger space can be reserved for after-hours by members as well as nonmembers.
The community is invited to host events at the facility, even without a monthly membership. For example, if a group is in need of a meeting space once per month, the meeting rooms or co-working space can be booked at an hourly rate. As a membership perk, members are given three hours of facility rental per month, allowing family gatherings and celebrations to be hosted there.
“We’re parents, family and friends, and we’re active in our community, so we want to see this space as a collective share of resources,” Ortmann says. “We’re really hoping to strengthen the community while improving people’s lives, and equip them to be greater.”
An official opening of the Zionsville COHatch and North High Brewing will be held later this spring. To find out more or to see a virtual tour of the Zionsville location, visit indianapolis.cohatch.com or email Ortmann at email@example.com.
