We are pleased to announce that several of our existing tenants have signed on to multi-year leases with us, and many others are in the process of being negotiated.
PCC and its founder, John Canning, has been the Champlain Mill's most reliable and committed tenant, enduring through all of the construction in the downtown, and living to tell the story. John and his team recently completed negotiations with HKW/LLC, and the ink is now dry on their multi-year lease. Work will begin soon on the expansion of PCC's offices, which by the Spring of 2009 will comprise nearly 15,000 sf of prime river front real estate in the Mill.
PCC offers an all-inclusive software and service package for private pediatric offices which offers complete practice control by providing key oversight and decision-making information and expert advice regarding practice improvement and growth.
The Coaching Center of Vermont has signed their lease and will be moving to their new space, also on the 3rd floor. The Coaching Center of Vermont (CCVT) is a collective of diverse coaches, each unique in their talents and expertise, the clients they attract, and their coaching style/philosophy. As stated by the International Coach Federation (ICF), "The coaching relationship is a professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life."
In the Fall, Champlain College became the first new tenant in the Mill when the Emergent Media Center opened its doors in newly-renovated space on the 3rd floor. Many of the students who work and study in the EMC live in the housing across the street known as Spinner Place, and they provide a unique perspective to the downtown that is being created.
The Emergent Media Center at Champlain College pushes creative technologies beyond what we know by integrating advanced technological tools with cultural awareness, creativity, communication and a sense of history and place. These combined skills are paramount to success in today's global economy and in every professional field.
The Winooski Mill Museum, currently located on the 2nd floor of the Mill, will be relocating to a new and space on the 3rd floor next door to the Emergent Media Center. While this move was necessitated by the expansion of PCC, it will be much more visible to the general public, and will give us the opportunity to showcase both the past history of the Mill and the future of the Mill in her new identity as a center where innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship all have a home.
