The first of New York-based Serendipity Labs’ Columbus locations is ready for tenants. Serendipity Labs Columbus-Capitol Square at 21 E. State St. will celebrate its grand opening on Thursday, September 28.

The Downtown coworking and office space is one of two for the franchise in Columbus. The local labs will be run by business partners Trevor Warner and Scott Somerville ofRenascent Hospitality – which is reflective of the hospitality mentality Serendipity Labs wants to see in its spaces.

Occupying the entirety of the second floor of the Fifth Third building, 14,000 square feet of space that was once a gym has been transformed into 54 private offices, open coworking area and an Ideation Room.

There are a few single-person offices, but Warner says Serendipity Labs focuses more on team rooms. Offices vary in size, accommodating teams of two to three, all the way up to eight to 10. The lock-and-key secure spaces come outfitted with desks and chairs, and additional equipment like phones and file cabinets can be coordinated through Serendipity Labs. Smaller offices start at $899/month, and bigger spaces at $1599/month. The price includes amenities like 24/7 access, use of meeting rooms, secure high-speed internet and guest reception services.
