I'm excited to give everyone their first look at the new Gravitate Downtown coworking space slated to open early this Fall at the corner of 5th & Locust in the heart of downtown Des Moines. Known affectionately within our coworking community as "Gravitate 2.0", this space is the culmination of a lot of input and hard work from our members, the Gravi-staff and our design partners at Shyft Collective.
We're pretty excited to show off the new sign we've installed at Gravitate Downtown. One of the reasons that we chose this location was the amazing windows on Locust St and we were excited to land on a design for the graphics that take advantage of their height.
You're invited to join us this Thursday, July 20th to celebrate the official Grand Opening of Gravitate Valley Junction. Starting at 9 AM, our space will be available for free/open coworking and tours. At 4:30 PM we'll kick off the celebration with a Community Happy Hour including light snacks and beer from our friends and neighbors at Valley Junction's own Fox Brewing Company.
After a lot of hard work from our team and countless trips up and down 6th Avenue, I'm excited to share that Gravitate Downtown v1.5 is officially open for business at our new location: 317 6th Avenue, Suite 102. We're on the first floor of the building and the best way to access us from the outside world is on Locust St. If you're coming via the skywalk system, we're accessible from the lobby of what has historically been called the "Bank of America Building".
I’m excited to share the launch of a new blog today (this one!), the Welch Avenue Daily.
