The origin of TradeSpace.

Our story is rooted in practicality and collaboration. Co-founders, Daniel Delgado and Jordan Tetreau, both with backgrounds in construction, recognized a gap in the market. They saw a need for a space that transcended the norms of traditional co-working environments. Their vision was clear: to create a shared workspace in Calgary that not only fosters collaboration but also provides the practicality of a warehouse for storage – a solution for businesses that needed more than just a desk.

Canada's First
Embarking on uncharted territory, TradeSpace began with an ambitious 10,000 square feet of space – a blank canvas with endless possibilities. This pioneering step was taken with a blend of optimism and uncertainty. We ventured into this journey without a clear roadmap: no predefined pricing strategy, no established employee structure, and no concrete playbook. It was a leap of faith, driven by the belief that if we build it, they will come.

This initial 10,000 square feet was all about learning, adapting, and innovating on the fly. We were not just building a co-warehouse; we were defining a whole new industry paradigm. Every challenge we faced was an opportunity to refine our model, to better understand the needs of our clients, and to solidify our vision.

In just five years, TradeSpace has remarkably expanded to 200,000 square feet across three Calgary locations, proudly serving nearly 166 members. This growth isn't just a number—it's a reflection of our deep commitment to our community's evolving needs.

Our journey from a daring 10,000 square feet to a thriving network of spaces has earned us numerous recognitions and awards, symbolizing our success in reshaping collaborative work environments. Each member and every square foot added encapsulate our ethos of innovation and collective progress.

As we celebrate this milestone, we remain focused on nurturing an ecosystem where businesses and creativity flourish. TradeSpace is more than a shared warehouse space—it's where collaboration, growth, and success intersect.
