The Harbor Announces Collaboration with BoomTown
THE HARBOR WILL OCCUPY 8,400 SQ FEET OF BOOMTOWN'S FUTURE HEADQUARTERS ON UPPER PENINSULA
CHARLESTON, SC – BoomTown, a leading real estate sales and marketing technology provider, is anchoring the renovation of an 80,000 square foot warehouse being developed by the Raven Cliff Company on the upper peninsula. The project, referred to as the "Pacific Box & Crate", will serve as the company’s new headquarters and is scheduled to be complete in the last quarter of this year. The Harbor Entrepreneur Center is thrilled to announce their agreement with BoomTown to occupy 8,400 sq feet of the future headquarters in January 2017.
The Pacific Box & Crate project, developed by Stephen Zoukis and Michael Wooddy of the Raven Cliff Company, will transform the warehouse into a modern office space with custom amenities including an Ashley Bell yoga and wellness studio, food hall (headed by Butcher & Bee owner & Harbor Mentor Michael Shemtov), the 20,000 sq ft Edmund's Oast Brewing Company, and several new structures to accommodate additional companies/office users. When completed, the redeveloped site will have 130,000 sq feet of space, including the warehouse.
The Harbor operates multiple sites around the Charleston region providing entrepreneurs the workspace and support they need to move their businesses forward. The new dedicated space in the BoomTown development will increase the amount of workspace infrastructure available in Charleston, and will offer private offices ranging from 200 sq feet to 3,000 sq feet, flexible workspace, meeting rooms, call rooms, and more. The Harbor sees this collaboration as a great model of a win-win scenario that will continue to strengthen entrepreneurship in Charleston and community development of the upper peninsula.
“At BoomTown we’re committed to driving innovation and passionate about supporting the Charleston tech community," said Grier Allen, CEO & President of BoomTown. “We’re very excited to have The Harbor join us in our new home to help foster our culture of innovative thinking and provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to grow their companies and build the products of the future." John Osborne, CoFounder and Director of The Harbor, is equally excited about this expansion. "I love everything about this opportunity!” said Osborne. “Elements I love about it include the collaboration with BoomTown, providing additional flexible term infrastructure to the entrepreneurial community, being a part of the new Pacific Box & Crate Development and emerging Upper Peninsula activity. Wins all the way around with this deal."
