SUGGESTIONS & FEEDBACK
REC is expanding – opening a new creative facility for REC Members at the corner of 9th & Market! The new space will be located in the new Fashion District (formerly The Gallery on Market East). We will have private recording studios, visual labs, design – dance – and podcasting rooms, along with a 50-person coworking space – which doubles as a 250 capacity event space. More info about the new space can be found here & here.
The new Center City location is set to open late Fall of 2019. The goal is to have the space open to REC Members by Thanksgiving 2019.
The North Philly location at 9th & Dauphin is not closing. We will be limiting the hours of operation at the North Philly location as we prepare for this transition – but REC Members will still be able to access the space with their membership. More info to come on Hours of Operation.
Absolutely. All current (and active) members will automatically be able to utilize the new space once we are open. REC will be sending out communication to all active members about the details for how to access the new space come Fall 2019.
You do not need to sign up again. If you are an active member at REC, you will be automatically transferred to be able to utilize the new space. As a current/active member, you will receive the benefit of avoiding the $99 sign-up fee for all new members – which will launch when the new space opens.
Yes, there will be a price increase for membership in the new space – but not much! The new monthly pricing will start at $49/month (General Creator membership), $89/month (Level Up membership), and $149/month (All-in Membership). There will be a $99 one-time sign-up fee for all new members.
The new hours are still TBD. We expect to be open around 10am and close around Midnight (Monday through Saturday) and something like 11am-10pm on Sundays. More info on this will be announced closer to our grand opening.
Yeah, technically our new space is in a mall — The “Fashion District Philadelphia” to be exact. We will be located on the 2nd Floor, above the Burlington Coat Factory. While we are located in this new mall — REC will also have our own front door located on 9th Street. REC Members will be able to access the Creative Facility without walking through the mall. Since we are located in a mall, the new space will also feature a Retail Store that is open to the public. This Retail Store will sell REC Members merchandise, products, and art — we are HYPE about this. More info on this to come!
