I spoke to them about the club and it really does sounds like more of a networking space than anything. My work is still mostly at home and likely 2-3 days in and out of the office going forward. I just don't see this working out. Downtown is a ghost town still...So if you are in your 30's it is a $1000 membership + $1600 annually + $500 annual minimum spend....
All to get access to a restaurant (that may or may not be good) and some boardrooms.
I'm not sure who exactly is the market is here, but perhaps someone can provide some insight?
Not really a ghost town in terms of foot traffic though. I've said it before, I think the most accurate way to think of ECC is essentially as a pedway system between buildings with convenience retail.The Rideau Centre is Ottawa's version of Southgate Mall c/w Nordstrom whereas ECC is a ghost town.
