Pelotonia among first tenants of Gravity project in Franklinton
The first three tenants to move into a new Franklinton developoment have been announced.
Pelotonia, the Roosevelt Coffeehouse and Cova Cowork will move into Gravity, a $70 million, six-story development at 500 W. Broad St, according to Gravity’s builder, Kaufman Development.
The first phase of the multi-dimensional Gravity project will include 234 apartments, 50,000 square feet of offices and 30,000 square feet of shops and restaurants on the north side of W. Broad Street. A second Gravity phase is planned across the street.
“We’re creating a community built around well-being, expression and impact, and these partners share our values,” Kaufman CEO Brett Kaufman in the release. “We’re also committed to providing a well-rounded experience for everyone who lives, works and plays at Gravity, and we couldn’t be happier about this inaugural group of collaborators.”
Pelotonia, the non-profit dedicated to raising funds to fight cancer, is moving its headquarters to Gravity, where it will occupy 4,500 square feet, nearly double the size of its current headquarters on Nationwide Boulevard.
“The vision for the Gravity Project resonated with our team, and we couldn’t be more excited to be moving our headquarters to Franklinton,” Pelotonia President and CEO Doug Ulman said in the release.
The Roosevelt Coffeehouse will open its second stand-alone location in 1,800 square feet space at Gravity, following the first location on East Long Street.
“The opportunity to bring our vision to life in this art-based, philanthropic space is just a match that’s been waiting to be sparked,” Roosevelt Coffeehouse Founder Kenny Sipes said in the release.
Cova Cowork – which offers coworking spaces, onsite childcare and professional support to its members – will open a 7,100-square-foot location at Gravity.
Gravity is leasing space to business and residential tenants. Business tenants will start moving into Gravity at the end of this year and residents will move into apartments in spring 2019, according to the release.
The apartments will range in size from 416 square feet to 1,174 square feet and rent will cost $835 to $1,965 a month.
