Simple Space is a 600 sq/ft commercial space 1/2 block from Vine St. on East 13th St. designed to be an all-purpose, revolving-use pop-up and event space for limited-runs and exclusive engagements. Some of our ideas for uses include: pop-up clothing shops, food truck dining areas, album release shows, film premieres, art galleries, Etsy retailer spotlights, tastings, storytellings, lesson space, studio space… Maybe even a crowd-funded product launch.
Here’s how Simple Space will work:
Anyone can book the 600 sq/ft storefront with bathroom anywhere from a 1-day to 6-week lease. Rental contracts would include utilities, internet, video security system, and 24/7 access to the storefront. Merchants would be responsible for organizing, set-up, promoting, running, cleaning, and tear-down of their event. We will provide a blank space on our storefront window for the tenant’s signage and posters. And if we’re successful in our fundraising goal, a space in our custom-built marquee.
There are a few different ways someone can interact with Simple Space:
This one is pretty obvious. You have something that you want to share, and you need a space to share it in. Simple. We have the space. We would love to rent it to you. Affordable rates and simple contracts.
Maybe you already have a product that sits on a shelf nearby. Maybe it’s a tasty treat. Hows about you bring that delicious stuff over here and we’ll all munch on it together. Or, maybe you’re a musician who has some scrumptious tunes that you want to share. I’m sure tenants and guests would love to have you nearby.
It could be that your product or service doesn’t make sense to utilize Simple Space. That’s okay, you can still participate by sponsoring a tenant who aligns with you and your offering. You pay for some of the tenant’s rental fees, and in exchange, you get your name in front of all their customers and guests. Win and win.
