CAPC is partnering with MEDINA = CITI to create a mixed use shared space in the City of Newark’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. MEDINA = CITI is a visual and multi-media design firm, specializing in branding campaigns, website development, video production and social media management. There will be several businesses within the building including a recording studio, event space, shared space, and a coffee house. This project will create opportunities for local residents to gain meaningful employment with at least eleven staff hired within the first year to work in the various business lines. In a neighborhood that has seen double digit unemployment, this project presents a unique opportunity to integrate Newark residents into an emerging tech economy which presently defines global growth.
A short description of each business line is highlighted below:
MEDINA=CITI Design Haus
A Full-Service Graphic Design and Multimedia firm, in existence for 5 years.
Newark currently has no curated share spaces, where like-minded entrepreneurs are able to work together on a daily, weekly, or monthly capacity. Equal Space will make such space available for rent so that small business owners are able to ensure dedicated share space when needed.
The Lincoln Park neighborhood currently does not have a coffee shop that is accessible to the community at large. The Socialisto will provide a relaxed meeting /social area and a commercial kitchen.
Citi Studios will provide a much needed location for recording artists to practice their respective craft. Since many studios in the New York Area are at capacity, Citi Studios will provide a space where artists are able to edit on a professional level.
The manor is a premiere venue in the city of Newark, boasting state of the art amenities in a historic setting.
