The City of Lafayette and its partners on a new coworking space downtown are getting additional help from their project development contractor.

Economic Development Director Dennis Carson says Tennenhouse will continue providing his design and strategy services through December.

MatchBOX Coworking Studio financing

Organizers of a coworking space in downtown Lafayette are putting the financing together.

While the space is being leased from the Tippecanoe County Public Library for $1 per year, the city is paying to renovate the facility. The library uses a portion of the Stein Building at 6th and South streets.

Lafayette’s Economic Development and Redevelopment commissions approved plans to sell up to $1.5 million in economic revenue bonds. The money would be used to build out the 10,000 square foot facility with conference rooms and work stations.
