A nonprofit that supports community initiatives has moved to a new home in downtown Dayton.

The Collaboratory is now in the Talbott Tower, said founder Peter Benkendorf.

The first floor space in Suite 5 is open for co-working and creative exchange 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Collaboratory last year had left its home of seven years in the Courthouse Crossing building at 40 W. Second St. after the new building owner raised its steeply discounted rent to the regular rate.

The Collaboratory has been behind community projects such as 3rd Sundays at Front Street, Dayton Sewing Collaborative, and Dayton Porchfest.

The Talbott Tower, at the corner of Ludlow and First streets, just sold to a new property owner, who is planning renovations and seeking to add new tenants.
