Centerline + HQ on Glenwood South
Jul 13, 2017
As you may have read the other week, Centerline Digital and the HQ Community are partnering to open up our Glenwood South location to bring together innovators, creators, and entrepreneurs, together in one space.
Our vision is to create an environment of like-minded makers and creative problem solvers who share ideas, uncover new approaches to solving strategic and business problems, and explore evolving trends and technologies.
Raleigh is full of so many exceptionally talented, brilliant people, and we want to create a way for us to challenge each other and help each other grow.
The Centerline crew will be occupying about a third of the available space. If you’re interested in collaborating or cohabiting with us, the HQ team is currently accepting applications for businesses and individuals to join the community.

FULL PRESS RELEASE
Centerline Digital Partnering with HQ Raleigh to Co-Create
Dynamic Shared Work Space in Glenwood Neighborhood Raleigh, North Carolina, [June 20, 2017] / PRNewswire/ — Centerline Digital and HQ Raleigh are deepening their community building and real estate partnership. Centerline will open up its entire 31,000 square feet corporate headquarters at 509 W. North St. in Raleigh’s Glenwood neighborhood transforming it into a shared economy focused on creative, design, innovation and problem solving. Through the partnership, HQ Raleigh will manage the community, the building and work with Centerline to co-create a diverse community of high-impact, high-growth enterprises as well as create a creative work environment for independent designers and creative entrepreneurs. Centerline’s 100 employees team will maintain dedicated space in the building and be an anchor member within HQ’s growing community of over 300 entrepreneurs and business professionals.
“This is a classic win-win,” says Charles Long, founder and CEO of Centerline Digital and Centerline Properties, LLC that owns the building. “HQ Raleigh has created a vibrant and highly collaborative community of entrepreneurs that is consistent with Centerline’s values and culture. It also epitomizes the future of work – defined by collaboration, shared spaces, and creative energy. By bringing HQ in as a partner, our team will greatly benefit from being part of HQ’s broader entrepreneurial community and energy.”
HQ Raleigh is currently the sole tenant in Centerline Properties’ building at 310 S. Harrington Street in Raleigh’s warehouse district where it will maintain a presence. “By partnering with Charles and Centerline on this new project,” says Jason Widen, a founding partner of HQ Community, “we have an opportunity to expand our community and physical space offerings significantly. It’s also a chance for us to further support Raleigh’s burgeoning design community and, by leveraging Centerline’s technology and amazing design aesthetic, create a truly unique offering and kindred community for our city’s creative talent.”
This move marks another growth milestone for HQ Raleigh that currently operates 20,000 square feet of co-working space in the warehouse district and is opening a new work and event space in the top five floors of the historic Capital Club building downtown. 509 W. North St. adds another 31,000 square feet of space to HQ Raleigh’s co-working portfolio and allows HQ to accommodate larger companies within the building’s larger suites. Centerline’s team will occupy approximately a third of the building and share all of the amenities and space within the new shared workspace. After some light upfit, the new concept is expected to be open for new member companies in early fall.

As the founder of Centerline, I consider myself fully accountable for the creative direction and quality of content that Centerline delivers. But my true expertise is problem-solving — specifically using both the right and left sides of my brain to find creative solutions to big business issues. Here at Centerline, we combine strategy and media elements to create compelling, immersive experiences that generate traffic and awareness. The chance to do that better every day keeps me coming to work. Before founding Centerline in 1996, I was a power generation engineer for General Electric, providing energy solutions in developing countries of the Pacific Rim. Today I continue to expect the unexpected and work to always raise the bar for what we deliver to our clients.
