DRC unveils renovations at open house
The Dundalk Renaissance Corporation (DRC) unveiled its newly-completed renovations to the community during a public open house/annual meeting last Wednesday, Oct. 17.
During the event, held at the new business incubator/office space at 11 Center Place, visitors enjoyed refreshments, tours and information about the mission and goals of the DRC.
Founded in 2011, the DRC began leasing space in their current building in 2009. DRC purchased the building for $200,000 in 2014. Now, the space is complete — featuring a retail pop-up and shared workspace on the first floor and renovated staff offices and business incubator space on the second floor.
The first floor space includes a kitchen/coffee bar as well as desks, file cabinets, a copier machine and other equipment that tenants can utilize.
Small business owners can rent space in the retail shop, co-working space or upstairs office.
“The rents will be below market rents because our interest is in building new businesses … in our historic Dundalk town center,” DRC executive director Amy Menzer told the Eagle last month.
Funds raised from renting work spaces in the building will go toward mortgage, maintenance and utilities for the building.
Those interested in the DRC’s upcoming business incubator space can contact Chris Pineda at 410-282-0261 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
