Bamboo Detroit is movin’ on up to a much bigger space downtown. The coworking community has signed a lease in the Julian C. Madison Building at 1420 Washington Boulevard.
The new space, which they hope to move into in January 2017, is 6,000 square feet and will include team offices, dedicated desks, and open collaborative work spaces.
The new space should accommodate up to about 300 entrepreneurs, an increase of 161 percent beyond its current occupancy.
The build out comes with the help of companies that have grown in and with Bamboo. NXT Design, a commercial interior design firm, has created a custom and high quality interior design solution for the new creative space. Rocket Fiber will provide Gigabit Internet for the community.
The office is being outfitted by Rightsize Facility, a nationwide office interiors and facilities services firm. The space will have flexible furniture including new glass modular offices, collaborative workstations, and seating.
The Julian C. Madison Building is named after the third African American engineer and son of the first African American engineer in the State of Ohio. The historic building has seven floors of office space, retail space, and a 10,000-square-foot loft style event spaces.
Bamboo Detroit plans on keeping their current location near Ford Field for larger startup team tenants. Interested startups can contact Bamboo for more information on that space.
