This “Airbnb For Storefronts” Is Creating New Opportunities In A New York Neighborhood

Operating in the Lower East Side, miLES is trying ignite the community by filling empty commercial space with interesting businesses and organizations on short-term leases while the landlords wait for the right long-term tenants.

Applications to join miLES are due on March 22, which include a brief description of how you’d use the space, and miLES hopes to fill its first space with co-workers in the day, classes and events in the evenings, and a pop-up shop on the weekends. 

Could your business profit from this service?
