An Incubator for a Successful Co-Working Space
A foreclosed warehouse has been reborn as a thriving mix of co-working units and studio spaces to give up-and-coming businesses affordable rent to produce local goods and provide local jobs. This is what defines the mission of Ponyride. In Detroit's Corktown section, Ponyride houses companies and entrepreneurs who are as diverse as their goods and services: metal work, coffee, clothing, housewares, music, and even balms for beards. One current tenant, The Empowerment Plan, trains and employs the homeless as seamstresses to assemble interchangeable coats that can be turned into sleeping bags and given to the needy. The public can visit Ponyride on Wednesday afternoons. Just remember that businesses are at work, so quietly observe!
