Expansion at East Village Update

We are excited to share an update on the progress of our expansion space! Check out some of our new renderings, so you can know what to expect from our new space in just one month from now.

All of the walls are up and the sweet smell of fresh paint is definitely in the air at the Hartford Building. Our contractors have all moved at the speed of light to keep our project on time, which seems like an impossible feat these days. So what does that mean exactly?

We want to you to come check out the progress our team is making and get a feel for the space. So, we will offer both morning and afternoon group construction tours on Tuesday, August 3rd and again on Thursday, August 5th. To sign up for one of our group tours, please click here

We will begin pre-leasing all of our private offices and team suites on Friday, August 6th at 8:00 a.m. Everyone who is on our reservation list at that time will receive an e-mail from our team with the option to choose your specific private office or team suite. We will require a completed membership agreement and security deposit to complete the process and place a hold on your office or team suite. Be sure to act fast, as these will be on a first come, first serve basis. We expect these to go quickly, as we currently have over 30 companies on our reservation list. On Monday, August 9th at 8:00 a.m. we will open up the remaining private offices and team suites to everyone else.

What can you expect to see?

Member of the Month: Robin Walters, Rogue Recruitment

Business Owner, Managing Partner, Feminist, Mother, Military Wife, Dog-lover, Non-profit Starter, Craft Beer Queen of The Root. Robin Walters is now adding another title to her ever-growing list: November Member of the Month! Robin started her own staffing company in 2018 called Rogue Recruitment. One of the cool things about Robin is that you can talk to her about almost any subject because she just knows a little bit about a lot of different things. We love having Robin and her team here at The Root—if you wanna meet her, you can just stop by the front desk on pastry-delivery day (Tuesday mornings).
