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 chris@dun­dalkusa.org.
