In July of 2016, LaunchHouse moved to Highland Heights. Just as homebuyers look at dozens of properties before purchasing, we looked at dozens of buildings in search of the perfect home for our coworking community. We went on the hunt very open minded and considered spaces all over town and even some unconventional commercial buildings. In the end, we signed a lease for over 8,000 square feet of office space in Alpha Park. LaunchHouse calls 675 Alpha Drive in Highland Heights home!
What we love about our new home:
Location, Location, Location
First of all, Highland Heights is conveniently located off of I-271. In just 25 minutes you hop on I-90 and zip downtown. Mentor is 19 minutes away, and Beachwood is about 15 minutes away. Therefore, Highland Heights is accessible for our LaunchHouse coworking members, whether they live in Chagrin Falls, Cleveland Heights or Macedonia.
When lunch time rolls around, it’s nice to have options nearby! LaunchHouse is right down the street from chains like Panera, Chipotle, and Qdoba. So, hop around the corner to SOM Center Road and you’ll find every fast casual restaurant you can think of, including Five Guys, Potbelly, and DiBellas. Our resident foodie entrepreneur, Anthony Stedillie, CEO of Knowta and co-founder of Edibly, appreciates the abundance of choices. “There are so many tasty lunch options, you can eat at different restaurants for two weeks and still not hit the same place twice.”
Office Space Variety
You’ll find commercial real estate to suit a variety of companies in Highland Heights. Alpha Park, where LaunchHouse is located, is an office park that offers over 550,000 square feet of building space. We appreciate the owners of Alpha Park because they are on-site and they bring over 40+ years of experience to the table. As a result, maintenance issues are resolved quickly and easily thanks to their in-house maintenance and service team.
You can find office space that fits your needs in Highland Heights. Even if you are a freelancer, entrepreneur, or startup founder. We know that working out of your basement or a coffee shop has its downfalls and can get lonely! Therefore, coworking may be a perfect solution for you. LaunchHouse offers month-to-month coworking memberships. We have open workspaces and dedicated offices for rent in a comfortable, friendly, supportive environment.
