NextFab, a collection of makerspaces that offer education, equipment and community for technologists and creatives in Philly and Wilmington, has begun to slowly reopen its facilities and unveil its newest hub — a 30,000-square-foot facility in North Philadelphia.
The new space, at 1800 N. American St. north of Olde Kensington, replaces NextFab’s previous North Philly location at Fourth and Thompson streets. Sales Manager Anna Solomon told Technical.ly that the previous location closed around Thanksgiving, and that the org was rearing to open the new space right before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the Philly area.
Stopped by ?@NextFab_PHL?’s new North Philly location yesterday. It’s about four times bigger than their previous Fishtown site, and the team is working on slowly but safely bringing in members. pic.twitter.com/gB1tXK4uWT
