The Living Room Acquires Covington-based Coworking Company, Platform 53
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 12/17/2018
Cincinnati OH, December 17, 2018 – The Living Room Inc. has announced the acquisition of Platform 53, Cincinnati’s oldest coworking space located in Covington’s MainStrasse Village. The addition of Platform 53 to The Living Room’s existing coworking program is sure to infuse energy, excitement, and diversity into Living Room’s Norwood-based coworking community.
Platform 53’s previous owner, Stacy Kessler, writes, “I’ve known The Living Room since before they began and I am absolutely confident they will keep the spirit of Platform 53 living, and with their expanded resources, be able to do more and offer more than I ever was able to.”
The acquisition comes as a result of Kessler’s desire to focus on her consulting business which helps entrepreneurs develop and manage their business strategy. While the transition is bittersweet, Kessler hopes to “infuse the heart and soul of Platform 53” into The Living Room’s current coworking offering. Both Stacy Kessler and The Living Room owners, Jerry and Joey Haselmayer are excited about the merging of services.
The Living Room launched its own coworking program in late 2017 as a third arm of the business. Aside from the shared workspace, The Living Room is a creative meeting space, as well as a full-service qualitative research facility, playing host to companies and brands of all sizes. With the addition of Platform 53’s community, The Living Room hopes to see its coworking grow into a thriving collection of high-energy professionals and entrepreneurs.
The Living Room will be offering free unlimited coworking to everyone in the month of January. The month-long promotion will kick off on January 2nd with an all-day event including tours, orientation, a free luncheon, guest speaker, and celebratory happy hour.
