In this episode of At Home in Bloomington, we realize how old Deb really is as she wonders in amazement at the concept of co-working (huh?), open workspaces (isn’t that loud?), and the important social aspects of work (you mean I shouldn’t feel guilty if I’m chatting at the office?). In the heart of downtown Bloomington, a once bustling factory known as Showers Brothers Furniture sat neglected for over 60 years. While Indiana University and the city used it for storage until the 90’s, it wasn’t until 2017 that a group of like-minded individuals hatched a plan to renovate it with financial support from the City of Bloomington and the Redevelopment Commission. What exists now is 19,000 square feet of coworking and business incubator space called Dimension Mill! Located north of City Hall in the Trades District, the Dimension Mill provides coworking space for over 15 companies and 150 members. Join us as we talk with Executive Director, Pat East, about the perks of coworking with people outside of your industry and all of the fun events happening down at The Mill!
