The grand opening of transformGSO and the Elm & Bain events space is being held Wednesday, Oct. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.

The complex of class A office space, co-working space and an events space is in the former Greensboro Gateway Building at South Elm Street and Gate City Boulevard.

The building began its life as the Bluebell Factory and has been transformed to its current use by Andy Zimmerman.

Zimmerman began his work remaking Greensboro’s SouthEnd in 2015, and, with the help of other entrepreneurial innovators, has transformed the SouthEnd into a lively, artsy quarter and an attractive location for work or play.

Kaitlin Conover, director of transformGSO, in a press release said, “The interest in office space and co-working memberships is sky high, and this is before we have even officially opened. I think it says a lot about how keen businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups are for what this space represents and what it is growing into, which is Greensboro’s innovation district.”

She added, “This grand opening is a perfect opportunity for those who celebrate what’s happening on the SouthEnd and those who may be interested in joining us here as a member or tenant to see what we’re all about.”

At the grand opening people will be able to tour the entire facility, including the gardens that connect the new transformGSO with the West Lewis Street transformGSO right across Bain Street.  The two locations create a campus-like setting that compliments the shops, restaurants and bars that have made the SouthEnd what it is today.

Admission to the grand opening event is free but reservations are required.  Those interested can go to and type Transform GSO in the search bar to register. For more information, click here.
