This is great! I will definitely be sharing with our members. So about the space, Fort Knox Studios is a 160,000 sq ft creative arts ecosystem if you will. We opened in 2011 and it started out as just a monthly rehearsal space for musicians. It quickly grew and we added a pro studio space, Icon Pro Studios, which is more for national artists touring. As the studio continued to grow, we wanted to add a space that included the business side of the creative arts. That is how 2112 was born. It is about 20,000 sq ft and we have shared work space, reserved work space and private offices. We have breakout rooms for meetings and a conference room along with an event space. We started off slow but this year has brought us a lot of members. We have members in music tech, lawyers, marketing folks, media companies, app developers and members in the film world. Our members are all across the board in the creative arts and it’s really great to see this all come to fruition. We are expanding this summer to add more offices! Our mentors have been incredible as well. I like to refer to 2112 as a relationship station.
Of course we all grow as 2112 grows and it is so fantastic to know that there is a coworking community. The whole concept and 2112 in general has become such a large part of our lives that it’s so nice to share with others and hear about other spaces. I can’t thank you enough for this forum and all the wonderful advice. I would love to come check out Indy Hall. I am there quite often for baseball games.
If you are ever in Chicago, please stop by! It would be great to meet you.
