Activate Space is a social enterprise with a commitment to impact real estate and community initiatives. We help individuals and organizations with vacant and underutilized properties create new revenue streams that meet their sustainability goals while doing social good.
This includes churches facing property-related challenges, retailers with storefronts under stress, and homeowners looking to simplify their lives through estate and downsizing solutions. We also craft innovative strategies transforming properties that are major liabilities into community assets for local governments, REITs, developers, banks, and civic groups.

FAQs

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY ACTIVATE?  To improve, energize, or expand use of a space. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

My kitchen sits empty after I finish all of my morning baking.

EVERYONE HAS SPACE TO SHARE.

Our church sanctuary is only being used part of the week.

There is a lot of unused green space around my hospital.

My yoga studio doesn't hold any classes in the evening.

We don't often need the front office at work. 

Our condo development site is being left vacant while we wait to build.

After an initial consultation, our Space Experts get to work on matching property owners with the right City Builders to take idle spaces to the next level. This includes transforming empty kitchens into food business incubators, yards into community gardens, and industrial complexes into creative production hubs.

You register your space and we do the rest!

WHY REGISTER YOUR SPACE? 

WHY LET YOUR SPACE SIT EMPTY?

  • Have a commitment to community.
