1st Floor

Workshop

Just beyond our newly constructed State Street lobby and soon-to-open retail café, you’ll find a 20,000 square feet workshop that represent the heart of our makerspace. Offering a variety of equipment, tools, and design/assembly space our workshop is built to help you make your ideas come to life.

2nd Floor

Co-Working

We’ve just completed a top-to-bottom, multi-million dollar, renovation of the Idea Foundry's 25,000 sq ft second floor bringing to life the largest, most creative co-working space in the city. From drop-in memberships and large communal spaces to dedicated desks and private offices, we've got a co-working solution to fit your needs.

3rd Floor

Mezzanine

Our newly built 3rd floor Mezzanine provides a unique perch that extends and surrounds our co-working spaces, offering quiet nooks for private work and more open expanses (including a roof-top deck to open in 2017) for socializing with members.
