A week after New Haven’s two venerable hospitals became one, two more century-plus-old institutions announced a merger of their own—and vowed to bring the downtown private eating club into contemporary standards, citing trends that pose special challenges to the clubs, including the fact that some younger entrepreneurs who might have joined them in an earlier era have gravitated to thriving coworking spaces like the Grove and The Bourse, New Haven’s Coworking Loft.

NEW HAVEN The city’s two premier private clubs announced their merger Wednesday, ending more than a century of competition to attract New Haven s economic and social elite.

Kip Bergstrom, Connecticut Deputy Commissioner of  Economic Development and Placemaking, offered insights into how New Urbanism and smart growth can make the most of the “innovation economy” and the tastes of young people — meshing with them to build a mobile yet strongly urban way of life.

The view offered by Bergstrom — former head of the Stamford Urban Redevelopment Commission and earlier an economic strategist for a policy group in Rhode Island — was presented in a program organized by architect Robert Orr for the Congress for New Urbanism’s New England Chapter at The Bourse, New Haven’s Coworking Loft.

Architects, traffic engineers and other design professionals from the New Haven area, and from cities as far as Boston and California, donated their time.  New Haven Architect and New Urbanist Robert Orr donated the use of The Bourse, New Haven’s Corking Loft.  Numerous community groups and interest groups, as well as City Hall professionals, Alders, and a representative from Rosa De Lauro’s office attended.  Two days of intensive talking, listening, and designing, in groups large and small, generated an array of ideas for ways to really reconnect and revitalize the area that a misguided “urban renewal” project tore asunder over half a century ago.

Is there an optimum size for these spaces? The March 13 New Haven Register reported on The Bourse, one of the two co-working spaces in downtown New Haven that were the focus of New Urban Network‘s January coverage. Robert Orr, a new urbanist architect who operates his firm from the building’s fourth floor, and his wife, Carol Orr, who runs a popular antique store on the ground floor, opened The Bourse in December, wanting to find a good use for an underused part of their building, on Chapel Street less than a block from the Green.

“What it offers is access to a printer-copier-fax machines, endless cups of coffee (there’s a kitchenette in both the Bourse and the Grove) and perhaps most important, a group of people to bounce ideas off of. Anyone who has felt lonely working from home will grasp the rationale: Humans, being social creatures, are more productive when there are other people to talk with, lean on and learn from… “

“A similar space known as the Bourse (French for “exchange”) on Chapel Street is the brainchild of New Haven architect Robert Orr. The idea is to offer more than a place to sit and get some work done. “

Recently opened is The Bourse, New Haven’s Coworking Loft. Owner Robert Orr says,“I think this is going to be a magnet to find out what’s happening in New Haven that isn’t Yale or Yale-New Haven Hospital,” he says. “These are people who have stopped waiting for the barriers to fall and are using their own two hands to get things moving.”

“The Bourse,” said New Haven architect and co-business owner Robert Orr, “was inspired by the early days of the Paris Stock Exchange; a place where people could find support as well as funding, and most importantly, a place where new ideas could be exchanged and find footing.”
