Located at 110 East Market Street in New Albany, The Root will serve as a collaborative workspace for anyone seeking an open and creative work environment.

“Our goal is to provide a multitude of work environments where our passionate members can be most efficient,” said Brigid Morrissey, who along with her father Mark co-founded the Root. “We believe that the work you do with the community inside these walls can have a major impact on the community beyond the walls.”

The 8,000-square-foot facility includes 14 office spaces, three conference rooms and an open-floor concept to encourage collaboration among the members.

Morrissey said The Root has 23 members, but expects that number to grow as more people learn about it.

“Every member makes a unique contribution to the space, and we’ve already seen the fruits of bringing a community of interesting people together,” she said.
