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.

Vacant and underutilized spaces are major liabilities for property owners. Empty structures are subject to high insurance costs, experience a significant decline in property value, and can become vulnerable to maintenance issues, criminal damage, and illegal occupancy.
Activate Space supports diverse stakeholders in addressing property-related challenges through innovative operational strategies. We craft solutions for individual property owners as well as banks, retailers, REITs, and local governments. Check out some of our activation projects here
One way we advance these goals is by providing COST NEUTRAL step-by-step services that transform vacant and underutilized spaces from liabilities to community assets. Opening up properties to dynamic use serves the dual purpose of preserving key urban portfolios and deepening their responsiveness to local need. We can help you reduce your property risk and activate your space for a few weeks, a few months, or for many years.
Our services include:
  • Facilitating visioning and opportunities development processes;
  • Establishing agreements with City Builders for the temporary use, renovation, or guardianship of your space;
  • Developing and implementing facilities management plans; 
  • Coordinating on-site locations administration; and more.
