Green Spaces Colorado
is planning a 7,000-square-foot expansion at its location in Denver's RiNo neighborhood.
The socially conscious coworking community, focused on providing a collaborative culture for environmentally friendly businesses, is developing partnerships and doubling its available office space to meet the demands of Denver's green movement.
"Green Spaces is an innovative blend of Denver's work to protect our resources for the future and support of entrepreneurialism," says Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. "Every decision we make impacts the quality of life for future generations, and Green Spaces exemplifies the sustainability efforts that will ensure our city is a better city for generations to come."
Green Spaces Founder Jennie Nevin has developed partnerships with local and national organizations that focus on green practices to ensure a clean environment for future generations. Those partnering with Green Spaces include:
- Certifiably Green Denver, administered by the Department of Environmental Health, provides free, confidential, non-regulatory environmental assistance to Denver's business community with the opportunity to become a certified green business.
- The Clean Energy Collective developed community-owned renewable energy solutions for electric utilities and their customers.
- United States Environmental Protection Agency (Region 8) protects human health and the environment in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming and 27 tribal nations.
- Walk2Connect transforms walking for a choice to a behavior to a lifestyle.
- Zipcar, a car-sharing network, is redefining the way we thing about transportation options and car ownership.
Originally founded in 2008 in Brooklyn, N.Y., Green Spaces is a way for green and socially conscious entrepreneurs to connect. Green Spaces opened its doors in Denver in 2009.
"Denver was an easy decision for the next Green Spaces location," Nevin says. "It has a thriving and growing green community, the mayor an city administration are dedicated to sustainability and smart green decision-making and the startup culture is exploding. As an added bonus, I was really eager to live in this incredible city."
