NoMad Continues to Grows as a Major Hub for Silicon Alley Startups
Wednesday January 28, 2015
Silicon Alley continues to be the city’s epicenter for creative startups, and NoMad finds itself right in the heart of the movement. With the likes of Buzzfeed, Yelp and Tumblr a few steps from our doors, Kew is surrounded by innovative, top-tier tech companies.
One of the latest tech companies to see huge investment is the NoMad-based company ClassPass, which Crain’s just reported has secured a $40 million Series B investment.
The ClassPass concept is simple. ClassPass users get access to a wide spectrum of premium health classes, from yoga to weight training, all for a simple $99 monthly membership. By offering members a nearly unlimited array of options, ClassPass is challenging the traditional gym membership model and becoming another hot topic in NoMad’s already vibrant Health and Wellness scene. The area has already seen the success of Uplift, one of ClassPass’s partners, which brilliantly balances fitness classes with a relaxing wine bar atmosphere.
It’s fantastic to see both of these enterprises coming to fruition here in this great neighborhood — combining health, wellness, creativity and innovation. NoMad is an ever-evolving neighborhood suited for a true live/work environment. Historically, our buildings have always been home to entrepreneurial firms, and we’re committed to continuing the role our buildings have played in this important sector of New York’s business life.
