Cornish purchased the building at 91 Clemence Street last year and has been working to shore up the detiorating structure. We’re happy to announce that Betaspring and The Founders League will become the first tenants of the renovated building.
As reported in Providence Business News:
Betaspring, a startup accelerator, and Founders League, a shared work space for companies and entrepreneurs, will occupy about half of the space in the building at 91 Clemence St., according to Arnold “Buff” Chace Jr., the managing partner of Cornish Associates.
Melissa Withers, managing director of Betaspring, and a co-founder of the Founders League, said Cornish Associates listened to what the companies wanted and needed for their space, and created a unique setting. The interior includes open space, as well as individual offices. About 35 people will make the move, she said Friday.
“The space was built out to fit the needs of our community, for the entrepreneurs we service,” she said. “It is a leap forward for us.”
The Clemence Street building most recently was occupied by a bar, and is thought to have originally been built as a warehouse. It has two sections, including one with three levels and another with two floors. It was acquired by Cornish about two years ago.
Four live-work spaces will be available in the upper floors of the Clemence Building early next year.by
