Alair Homes Nanaimo is currently working on a project unlike anything else in Nanaimo. It’s simply called SquareOne, and with it brings new opportunity to Nanaimo’s technology based start-up entrepreneurs and other out of the box thinkers.

SqaureOne Defined

SquareOne is Nanaimo’s first technology incubator and co-working space. You are probably thinking the same as I was the first time I heard that. What does that mean? Technology incubator means SquareOne provides the support needed for burgeoning entrepreneurs to make their businesses grow bigger, better, faster with the guidance of Innovation Island and The Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation. From product development to capital advisory services all the advice and services needed to grow these start-up technology businesses are at your disposal.


If that wasn’t enough to get your interest why not do that in a co-working space that surrounds you with like-minded people in an open concept office space to provide a comfortable place to grow your business and get those creative juices flowing.

With access 24 hours a day 7 days a week to this space with all the amenities you could ask for business can be done without limits. These amenities include reception support and community manager, business centre management (printing, scanning and fax), modern desks, ergonomic chairs, unmetered high speed wireless and hard-line internet access, VOIP phones, access to meeting and board rooms, A/V equipment in meeting rooms, relaxed lounge area, shared kitchen with coffee, tea and light snacks, interior bike storage, lockers and shower/changing facilities.

Alair Homes is proud to be working alongside building owner Bill Belland (of Modern Café and level two dance+lounge), Innovation Island and NEDC on such a great project that is sure to be an asset to our community for years to come. Stay tuned to see the finished product in the summer of 2014.
