Former Guelph hotel to become multi-use tech hub

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Plans to transform a former 19th century hotel in downtown Guelph, Ontario, into a multi-use tech hub and innovation centre is expected to drive new talent to one of the province’s fastest growing cities.

 

Local entrepreneur Geoff Linton, owner and chief executive officer of Inbox Marketing Corporation, a digital marketing services and technology solutions company, purchased the historic building that was once The King Edward Hotel.

 

He plans to revitalize the 17,000 square feet of office space into his company’s headquarters and also connect medium-size businesses to experienced marketing and tech professionals. 

 

“We are very excited to be located along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation corridor,” he said. “A tech incubator specializing in digital marketing will attract new talent to the City of Guelph and will be a focal point for innovation, technology and business leadership.”

 

Built in the late 1800s and located across from the rail station, the building is now situated in a new transportation hub. Inbox Marketing is also located in Toronto and Waterloo, so this Guelph hub is accessible for clients and employees along the Toronto –Waterloo corridor.

 

“We’re proud to have supported the transformation of this historic site through the permit process,” said the City’s Chief Administrative Officer, Derrick Thomson. “Innovative projects like these build on the vibrancy of our downtown core and help firmly establish Guelph’s position in the Toronto-Waterloo Corridor.”
