Tour Serendipity Labs’ new space in the Short North

Serendipity Labs has opened its second co-working location in the Columbus area, this one in the Short North.

The space, which takes up 22,000 square feet in a floor and a half at the newly-built 886 N. High St., opened Aug. 1.

Trevor Warner, CEO at Warner Consulting Group and managing partner at Serendipity Labs, said the location has a distinctly different vibe from the downtown location on Capitol Square.

“We tried to keep it a little more industrial to keep up with the eclectic vibe of the Short North,” Warner told me. “This location has more space for events, an outdoor space and gathering areas. In 2018, it’s more of that outdoor space – so having the fourth-floor views there is a really exciting thing.”

The facility is a franchise with Renascent Hospitality. Memberships start at $49 a month.

The Short North Alliance is the first tenant, taking up a big part of the fourth-floor office, he said.

Co-working spaces such as this are enjoying a surge in Columbus. Real estate firm CBRE estimates that by the end of the year, as many as 50 co-working locations will be open in Central Ohio, using as much as about 564,000 square feet of space.
