Networking Event

ABOUT THE CENTER

Launched in March 2022, Space Central is building the future of collaborative membership-based office and events space by focusing on multiple lines of business, including conventions and meetings, sports and entertainment, special events, networking galas and more.


We’re driven by the desire to reinvigorate economically damaged downtown city cores by bringing together freedom-minded business owners, entrepreneurs, clients, and stellar events all under one roof in centrally-located underutilized office space facilities.


Public and Private grantors, donors and sponsors will augment the user-supported subscription-based membership model that is integral to our ongoing funding success strategy. 

History of the Space

Site 1 - Victoria Park (VP)


This site is the current head office location of Space Central. 

Located on the southeastern perimeter of downtown at 1001 1 St SE in Calgary, AB, Canada, this building was originally the home of the world-famous Sun Ice clothing company that manufactured the ultimate winter ski jackets that became the colorful featured uniforms of the 1988 Calgary Olympic Winter Games.

Since the demise of that business, the building has been home to a variety of other businesses from oil & gas companies to engineering firms. The building sat mostly empty for a few years and now houses the current Calgary Business Centre on the second floor and the Philippine Consulate on the ground floor.


Space Central first took up occupancy on March 1, 2022 to launch this concept and then transitioned its two offices over to a new location 2 blocks away on June 1, 2022 during the ongoing renovations of the 3rd floor. On September 1, 2022, we returned to a new larger office down the hall to relaunch the program in a phased-up approach.


When the main core tenant who was leasing the event hall space and several internal offices vacated the building on June 30, the landlord has indicated a desire to convert the event hall into more private offices which would greatly expand the possibility for us to grow into additional office space as new members join. However, we have a small window of opportunity to reacquire that space if we can gather sufficient members to lease that hall once again. 

We are currently seeking to enroll the first 200 members and secure corporate sponsorships and private donations so we can lease the entire floor of the VP location for the purposes stated in this website. The building is under ongoing protracted renovations which will likely not be completed until the fall of 2022 depending on supply chain constraints. As our membership grows, we will be able to progressively add more space to our list of available amenities. 

We also have our eyes on two additional buildings in the city that would also serve our purposes. Stay tuned for updates. 

POTENTIAL USES

These are some of the current and proposed use cases of the 16,500 square feet of flexible office space available at Site 1 of Space Central.


Note: large events will be booked at outside third party venues until we secure additional space either here or at another location.

Please note that these are stock photos for illustrative purposes only and not actual pictures of the facility.... at least not yet.
