Saltbox, a co-working and co-warehousing facility, is launching with a location in Atlanta.
Slated to open in November, at 1345 Seaboard Industrial Blvd. NW, Saltbox Upper Westside is the first of many planned locations for the company, set to serve the “Concrete Class,” according to a press release.
The Concrete Class is defined as entrepreneurs who are importers and exporters, distributors, makers, and e-commerce operators.
Memberships are month-to-month and include a range of options from “community memberships” to private “warehouse suites,” including loading dock access, high-speed Wi-Fi, warehouse equipment, a photography stage, conference rooms, enterprise security, temperature-controlled environment, common areas and quiet booths.
“Because these entrepreneurs don’t need tens of thousands of square feet, they find themselves facing a constant and frustrating tradeoff,” Tyler Scriven, co-founder and CEO of Saltbox, said in the release.
“Current options are either too expensive, too big, or too far away from city centers. And with the average warehouse space being 34 years old, they’re inevitably forced to give up the modern conveniences that businesses need to thrive. With Saltbox, every entrepreneur has a community to call home.”
Saltbox recently raised $3.2 million in venture funding to get the concept off the ground, including building out the forthcoming 27,000-square-foot facility.
