According to the brochure, a “cluster of seven unique buildings” will surround a “central gathering space,” a couple of which will house two restaurants and a coffee shop. A total of 12,000 square feet of leasable space makes up the center, with spaces ranging from 80 to 1,200 square feet. Rental rates begin at $200 a month.
The brochure promises a “lush and green” environment, with landscaping “like no other space in town.” It also highlights the use of re-conditioned shipping containers in some of the construction.

The creators of the center are targeting entrepreneurs and will offer free seminars on a monthly basis, hosted by business professionals, including lawyers, graphic designers, architects, and business consultants. There will also be meeting space made available to tenants, free WiFi, and “communal” advertising.
The trio behind the project, Octavio Gomez, Nick Salgado, and Rudy Valdes, have formed Pan Y Agua LLC, the new name for their restaurant and bar group. Construction began earlier this year on the project with walls going up within that last few weeks.
