Norwood Space Center is a hive of creative commerce where arts, business and technology collaborate. This dynamic 300,000 square foot historic mill building campus is conveniently located between Boston, MA and Providence, RI.

Bird & Sons constructed the Norwood Space Center in 1904 as an “innovation center” to create and produce linoleum. That same spirit of innovation and creativity lives on at the newly remodeled Norwood Space Center with craft brewing, baking innovation, stone fabrication, pop culture archives, artisans and more.

An interior “Main Street” corridor connects the buildings allowing all members to walk freely between buildings and share workspace, bathrooms and loading.

Building 1 – sits across from the main buildings and is fully occupied by Planet Self Storage with over 350 storage units decorated with pop culture memorabilia and streaming music videos provided by David Bieber Archives and Motherlode.tv.

Building 2 –is an industrial, chic event space with 15,000 sq. feet of column free design, high ceilings, a cement floor and lots of windows. It is a clean pallette ready to be transformed to the needs of our clients and event planners. The space is ideal for performances, pop-up markets, conferences, fundraisers, weddings, business meetings and private parties.

Building 4 – was redeveloped and leased early 2017 with Percival Brewing Company : a small craft beer brewery, Puratos USA : a baking innovation center, Bay State Energy Reduction and Little Bird Events : a small private event facility for gatherings of up to 100 people.

Building 6 – our latest renovation, opened January 1, 2018 with 26 studio spaces from 280 to 600 sq. feet, and commercial units ranging from 1,600 up to 5,000 sq. feet. They share a designated community workspace, kitchenette and conference room. It is home to artists, photographers, designers, consultants, technology companies and creative collaborators. At this time, Building 6 is fully leased. Anchor companies include: The Exhibit Source : a trade show exhibit company, Alex Jones Photography : a photography studio and Ruby’s Naturals : an all-natural frozen veggie and fruit pops, and non-dairy yogurt alternatives.

Building 6 Loft – 8 new creative spaces will be available September 1 with open ceiling concept, glass doors, and wooden floors. Perfect for that solo-preneur looking for a collaborative community.

Building 8 – 2nd Floor – is home to the David Bieber Archives, Motherlode TV, The Sneaker Museum and the Ani DiFranco Distribution Center. The David Bieber Archives is one of the largest pop culture archives in the world with over 600,000 items ranging from albums, CDs, cassettes, photographs, newspapers, magazines, posters and more.

Building 8 – our next renovation, begins April 1, 2018 as crews leave Building 6. We are duplicating some of the great space ideas from Building 6 with more retail/commercial units in front ranging from 1,500 to 3,500 sqaure feet and approximately 25 creative studio units in the back from 250 to 500 square feet. These creative spaces have both open ceiling and private space concept. We plan to open this building and welcome new members Fall of 2018.

Outlying buildings 5 and 11– include Aldrich Stone | CanaHome – a stone design fabricator and bathroom and kitchen builder, and College Town Auto.

Building 10 and 12 – Expected to start renovations in 2019.

You create the space you need, the way you want it, whether it be artistic, creative, commercial, retail, industrial, innovative, storage, office/work, educational or event space.
