THE CREATIVE SPACE

WHAT IS THE SPACE ON BEECH STREET FOR?

Our vision of creating a community space for entrepreneurs + creatives in Ottawa is coming to fruition.  This 1500 sq/ft open space in the heart of the city is a community hub for popups, workshops, markets, micro-conference space, photoshoots, launch parties and more. 

Accessible location was essential. Minutes off the queensway, ample parking, along transit, and accesible by foot/bike/scooter from downtown, Chinatown, Hintonburg, Westboro, Little Italy + the Glebe within 10-15 minutes.
