"Our fi...rm was growing and we knew the small, individual offices we were working out of in a co-working space weren't suitable for our future needs. We were looking for a space that fit our desire to expand but also maintained a casual environment, while avoiding a crushing monthly price tag. FirstBase met with us to discuss our options and introduced us to a local development company that was revitalizing old warehouses for office space use. We were able to find a location and space that met our needs perfectly. Our space at 448 N. 10th Street is perfect. We were able to work with the developers to outfit the space with a conference room and lounge area for clients that resonates with our brand. FirstBase was instrumental in helping us take the next steps to expanding our office space and, ultimately, making us excited about spending time in the office each day. Our clients love the space too; the feedback has been phenomenal."
