Grit City Grindhouse... BEFORE... and AFTER!
BEFORE… AFTER!  The Grit City Grindhouse, a retail skateboard and custom design shop located at 311 S. 7th in Tacoma, transformed this vacant space and brought their business to life while in the Spaceworks’ Creative Enterprise program.

Spaceworks Tacoma seeks Creative Enterprise and Special Projects applications from creative businesses, artists, community groups, and non-profit organizations looking to fill no- and low-cost vacant storefronts in 2014. The deadline to apply is February 3, 2014.

Participants of Spaceworks are provided space, exposure, training and technical assistance in exchange for creatively activating vacant spaces. The goal is to transform empty storefronts with creative energy and artistic enterprise, making Tacoma a stronger, more active city.
