what you need to know to apply
To be considered for the Pop Up Office Project, your proposal must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Friday, September 1, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Jen Cadieux at 224-1518 x226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Activated Spaces, Pop Up Office Project, a component of the Greater Dayton Downtown Plan, is currently seeking proposals from prospective businesses looking for downtown office space. The ultimate goal of the Activated Spaces Pop Up Office Project is to create a vibrant downtown that serves as a location for people to work, collaborate, and innovate. We will achieve this goal by activating office space through a collaborative type model. The selected office space is located on the eighth floor of Liberty Tower (120 W. Second St.) and is remodeled in order to host up to three companies in a collaborative environment. Project supporter, Business Furniture, has kindly loaned the majority of the office furniture to outfit the space as well as donated their time for space planning and layout of the Pop Up Office.
Are you interested in leasing office space in downtown Dayton? If so, we want to hear from you. The lease length will be three to six months. The space will be leased below market value.
Please note all proposals will remain confidential until accepted into the program. Upon acceptance into the program, all Activated Spaces tenants will be featured in publications and marketing materials. By submitting your application, you are not committed to leasing space if accepted.
Pop-up lease terms are three to six months and long term leases are encouraged after the lease terms expire. Lease terms will be negotiated directly with the property owner. Flexibility for the tenant is a priority.
