Space for additional workstations such as a spray booth or prototype lab
Flexible space and environment to accommodate New London’s future needs
AND space where Spark can invite youth to participate in our community culture through programming, events, and activities.
Spark has found a rare gem on Union Street. It is right in the heart of New London which is essential to the community impact we strive to achieve and being right downtown makes it an accessible and walkable location.
Thanks to Thames River Innovation Place’s (TRIP) generous support, Spark Makerspace, and two member investors formed an LLC and purchased Union Street in July 2020. The new building has been renovated with the first floor and storefront occupancy and ready for members!
Spark would also like to thank Thames River Innovation Place, The Cooperative Fund of New England, Chelsea Groton Bank, The Harkness Foundation, The Betts Family, and many others who have joined us to make Spark’s Vision – To be a vibrant, community hub for making, creativity, and collaboration in southeastern CT- come alive.
DONATE TODAY to join our growing community of supporters. THANK YOU!!!
