OK, so it wasn’t quite an episode of MTV’s CRIBS, but we did our own little house tour of the HUB Seattle’s new downtown digs in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square earlier this week.
Check out the video to get a look at the remodeled business incubator and co-working space, which serves as a home to socially-conscious entrepreneurial ventures in the 35,000 square-foot, four-story building and former showroom of Masin’s Furniture.
HUB Seattle houses nearly a dozen socially-conscious businesses on the first two floors of the building. Two other entrepreneurship-related organizations — Bainbridge Graduate Institute and Social Venture Partners — reside on floors three and four. Together, they make up the Center for Impact and Innovation, a joint venture bringing together students and entrepreneurs who want to bring about change. It’s one of the largest concentrations of social entrepreneurs and engaged philanthropists in the country.
HUB Seattle founding partner Lindsey Engh showed us around and said that there will be a public cafe on the first floor lobby by early 2013. She added that there are about 150 total members that use the building on a regular basis.
Prices for the co-working space currently range from $35 per month — which includes discounts to HUB events and two days of access per month — to more than $295 per month — which includes a 24/7 keycard, room rental discounts and other amenities.
