Grand Opening Celebration at Gravitate Downtown

Grand Opening Celebration at Gravitate Downtown

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Grand Opening Celebration and Ribbon Cutting last week. It was a pretty special event and I’m glad that you were a part of it. Attendance was far bigger than we expected but thankfully we bought enough beer, wine and snacks.

We’re really proud of the new Gravitate Coworking—Downtown space and the community that gives it life every day. We couldn’t wait for the event to be able to share it with all of you.

A first look at Gravitate 2.0

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.

Gravitate Donation Tree

Gravitate is going all in to help families this holiday, and we need your help. Our member Derek Brooks and his wife Kari, have connected us with three local families to learn what could make their holidays extra special. We've setup a Christmas tree at each Gravitate location where you can drop off (or order) presents to be given to the families detailed below

Gravitate Downtown open for business in new location

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".
