Project leases Dayton offices to start-ups


DAYTON — Activated Spaces, an initiative to fill downtown Dayton storefronts, has launched Pop-Up Office.

Applications are being accepted for office businesses to open in downtown Dayton this summer. The project is mirrored after the successful Pop-Up Project, which traditionally has focused on matching retail business owners with downtown property owners.

The spaces will be clustered near each other, giving the business owners an opportunity to collaborate. Lease lengths will range from three to six months and may have varying lease rates, but will be leased below market value.

Interested office space-seekers should fill out an application, which can be downloaded at www.activatedspaces.org, and email it to Jen Cadieux at cadieux@downtowndayton.org. The application deadline is 5 p.m., July 17. Tenants will be selected the week of July 31, and must be able to operate in their space no later than the end of August.
