ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--THRIVE | Coworking, a flexible workspace solution with a commitment to philanthropy and community involvement, today announced its first location in Ohio with the acquisition of Cova. A thoughtfully designed coworking space housed in The Gravity Project, THRIVE | Franklinton is located in the heart of the creative district at 480 Broad St., just west of downtown Columbus. Franklinton is a developing urban neighborhood with historic landmarks, galleries, public art and museums, and is also in close proximity to The Ohio State University.
“We’re thrilled to build on what Cova has created in Franklinton and take it to the next level. It’s a really fantastic neighborhood with a really great energy, and we can’t wait to be a part of it — THRIVE is all about community and inspiration,” said Co-founder and CEO of THRIVE, Ramon Gonzalez. “The acquisition of Cova is also the first of many we plan to make in the coming months, offering coworking operators an exit or an opportunity to partner with us on our growth.”
Featuring open spaces, private offices and conference rooms, THRIVE |Franklinton offers a variety of memberships designed to meet the needs of both large and small enterprises looking to create bespoke remote hubs — complete with a curated, purpose-driven workplace culture — as well as hosting independent entrepreneurs, freelancers and students. It features more than 7,000 square feet of newly built workspace with tons of natural light, lots of greenery, clean design, and a rotating exhibition of local artists. There are regularly scheduled member breakfasts, lunches and happy hours (embracing the area’s craft-beer and coffee-shop scene), as well as can’t-miss events and outings. Onsite parking is available and public transportation is nearby.
THRIVE is designed for anyone looking for a new way to work — where you can be connected, not alone, in a professional, inspiring, collaborative and fun atmosphere. THRIVE also works directly with companies to create the hybrid work locations they need, exactly where they want them — with all the amenities, convenience and culture employees love baked right in. And like the other THRIVE locations, THRIVE |Franklinton is located in a vibrant, walkable neighborhood, close to shops and restaurants.
THRIVE also plans to drive local business by partnering with neighborhood retailers who offer discounts on dining and services to coworking members, as well as anyone who participates in THRIVE | Initiative, the company’s 501(c)(3) micro-donation platform. The THRIVE | Initiative app rounds up credit or debit card purchases to the nearest dollar amount and lets users donate the difference directly to a local charity. It is expected to be available this year.
