Nosy Neighbor: What’s This Restaurant Opening on Spring Street?

It looks like some type of food establishment is opening at 303 Spring. Do we know anything about it? —M.

Galvanize is a combination tech school and shared workspace—like a WeWork where the emphasis is on technology and business education. (From its website: “A home base to startups and established companies building tech-enabled innovations and has all of the amenities of a co-working space—plus learning opportunities, resources, and access to the network a growing startup needs.”) For its first East Coast location, the company rented nearly 55,000 square feet 1t 315 Hudson, which includes the entire second floor. “As part of the renovation, landlord Jack Resnick & Sons Inc. plans to convert one of the building’s loading docks into a 3,000-square-foot private entrance and coffee bar for Galvanize,” reported the Real Deal a year ago.

“The space at 303 Spring is our café—technically its name is Gather, but the signage outside will read Galvanize—and it’ll be open early July to the public,” says Michael Huffstetler, the campus’s general manager. “We’ll have a full coffee menu as well as breakfast and lunch options. There will be occasional programming, mostly around tech. For example, the Founders Fridays program that we currently run at different coffee shops around the city will be in our café once we open.”
