Apartments, design studios, and exhibition spaces will be available as early as Spring of 2019.

Here’s an early glimpse of the amenities you’ll enjoy as a COHAB resident: fitness and meditation studios, a 24/7 café, a collaborative kitchen, interaction with stimulating people when you want it, solitude and focus when you need focus, an organic permaculture garden, a rock-climbing wall, meeting rooms, maker-spaces, showrooms, event spaces, and obviously more--we’re just getting started!

COHAB is much broader and deeper than a facility. It’s a movement. And we’re a resource. We will support our residents with their marketing and branding efforts, facilitate beneficial introductions, and particularly for our international designers in residence, help to break down barriers to American product distribution.

COHAB will be YOUR future space. Help us to incorporate your feedback and ideas into its evolution.


COHAB’s vision is to be the catalyst that sparks the reinvigoration of the High Point, NC product manufacturing industry by creating bridges between our local community and the global design industry.

Housed in the former Melrose Mill in the 5 Points District, COHAB is strategically positioned just 5 minutes from the High Point Market, the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world. While the Market biannually brings more than 75,000 design industry influencers to the region, COHAB will activate and energize High Point 365 days a year and bring jobs and renewed vibrancy to our City by reinvigorating the furniture manufacturing industry.

More details on how you or your organization can become involved will be released soon.
