Recast City

Reinvent | Reposition | Revitalize

Recast City works with real estate developers, city and other civic leaders to create cowork manufacturing space for small-scale producers. We build the startup community for small manufacturers and makers in the city - across industries of textiles, electronics, wood, metal and other materials. 


Recast City

Every neighborhood deserves to be great.

This greatness comes from the people and the businesses in the community.

Small-scale manufacturing businesses are key to create that vibrant and thriving neighborhood and economy.
