Palette to Open Second Location in Schenectady’s Historic Foster Building

Coworking space and café will open in May

March 3, 2020

Schenectady, N.Y.Palette, a coworking space and café located in Saratoga Springs, is expanding into Schenectady and will lease about 4,000-square-feet in the Foster Building located at 508 State Street. This will be the second location for Palette Owner Catherine Hover.

The coworking space will be very similar to the Saratoga Springs location that opened in November of 2019 and will feature areas for meetups, semi-private desks, a conference room, and more on the second floor of The Foster. Palette will be open to members who hold yearly, monthly and even day passes which include access to concierge services, programming and other perks.

Palette will also utilize space on the first floor for a café. The cafe will offer coffee, light fare, baked goods, and cocktails in a comfortable setting. It’s a place that will continue to celebrate culture, shared ideas and connections.

“Palette feels like a home away from home with the support you need to crush your career and life goals amongst a community committed to do the same,” said Catherine Hover. “It’s your place to escape, to level-up with other people growing their career or to just meet new friends. We’re all about supporting women.”

The space itself will be located within the historic Foster Building, which was built in 1907. The building was originally used as a high-end hotel for visitors and has since been updated into apartments, restaurants and office space.

“Palette brings a unique opportunity to those looking to be part of a community, to be inspired, meet new people and accomplish great things together. The coworking space and café will be a welcome addition to downtown Schenectady and the economic resurgence that’s taking place before our eyes,” said Jeffrey Buell, principal, Redburn Development Partners.

Potential Palette members are invited to attend a live lease signing scheduled for Thursday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m., located at 508 State Street, Schenectady, N.Y.,12305. To learn more or become a member of Palette, click here. Hover plans to open the doors in late spring.
