Serendipity Labs Coworking Signs Leases for Two Locations in Columbus

10 April 2017

New York based Serendipity Labs Coworking announced today that its franchise development partner for Columbus,  Renascent Hospitality, owned by Columbus natives and local business owners Trevor Warner and  Scott Somerville, has signed two leases for Serendipity Labs. The first is slated to open summer of 2017 with 14,000 square feet in the Fifth Third Center at 21 E. State Street. The second—in new construction at 900 N. High Street—is for 22,000 square feet in what is now site of the UDF building in The Short North.

“Trevor is a life-long resident, and I’ve been here for more than a decade. Columbus is fast becoming a Midwest hub for national business and we wanted to offer a coworking option that will become part of the vibrant, exciting fabric that is the Columbus business community,” said Somerville. “Serendipity Labs allows established companies to confidently extend their footprint and gives fast-growing ones a flexible option that can expand with their needs. Members have easy access to the growing network of locations across the country for remote meetings – a benefit unique to Serendipity Labs. It is hospitality-driven coworking so that companies can focus on their core business, innovation, and new ideas—but as a Columbus-based company, we take pride in ensuring a member experience that ‘big box’ coworking simply cannot.”

“Our members are experienced professionals from a cross section of industries with high standards. About 45 percent are employees of well-recognized companies, 20 percent are start-ups, and 35 percent are independents. More than 40 percent are women – double the industry average,” says John Arenas, CEO of Serendipity Labs. “Renascent has been a Top 100 Hotel Management & Development Company for five years running and is designated by Marriott and Hilton Hotels as a preferred management company. We are thrilled they will own and manage Serendipity Labs in Columbus. They understand the market, and with their award-winning hospitality background, we know they will more than deliver on our brand promises.”

Memberships include use of dedicated private offices, team rooms, full-time and part-time coworking and day passes. All members may take advantage of the lab café, work lounge, and phone retreats with dedicated landlines. Corporate memberships offer centralized billing and reporting. The local Columbus team will curate a full schedule of programming, meetups and seminars and the space may be reserved for off-site and evening events.
