Original plans for Ogden’s maker space, “The Market” have resurfaced as part of the Nine Rails Creative District (#ninerailsogden). The maker space will still be housed in the 90 year old parking structure of the iconic Bigelow Hotel, to be named The Monarch.
After a $14 million revamp The Monarch will be the centerpiece of a developing arts and cultural district downtown. It is planned to house restaurant, retail, event space, creative studios, and The Market maker space.
According to Brandon Cooper, deputy director of Ogden City Community and Economic Development the makerspace proposed for Ogden will have 12 interconnected shops, including 3D printing, welding, textiles, fabrication, wood working, digital media and electronics.
