CSC held a  grand opening and ribbon cutting for its innovation and co-working space in Wilmington.

The building is located at 112 S. French Street Wilmington, next to the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Railroad Station.

Founded in 1899, CSC’s global headquarters and campus have been located outside the city limits for more than three decades.

With CSC Station, CSC has invested in demonstrating support for Wilmington’s redevelopment efforts, a release stated.

The company purchased the PA Railroad Building – built in 1905 -and redesigned the 43,000-square-foot historic building with six floors.

“We’ve extended our brand into the city and are providing the convenience to start-ups, entrepreneurs, local businesses, our customers, and employees of being next door to the station,” says Rod Ward, CSC CEO.  “We felt this was a great opportunity to invest in the community and the growth of the City of Wilmington.”

The first two floors have been transformed into inspirational and energetic co-working space, including open space, dedicated desks, various office sizes, and conference rooms.

The fourth floor serves as event space and the lobby, a  waiting area for Amtrak and SEPTA travelers.

CSC Station also serves as an innovation hub available to CSC’s teams around the world. CSC officially opened the doors of CSC Station in the first week of November 2020, but delayed a formal opening in accordance with Covid-19 restrictions.

“CSC Station is a co-working space where individuals and companies can run their business without long-term agreements,” says Scott Malfitano, CSC vice president. “This unique space provides an environment that will help drive other business in Wilmington. Being next door to the train station and near our headquarters, we offer a level of unmatched convenience, attractive to employees and businesses from New York to D.C. that are only a short train ride away.”

“This remarkable company’s new and innovative presence in Wilmington is another reason why I have no doubt that our city will emerge from the pandemic and other challenges better and stronger than ever,” says Mayor Mike Purzycki. “The entire CSC team has shown a strong faith in our city, its people, and our collective futures. I am very pleased to officially welcome CSC—albeit somewhat belatedly—to its new co-working innovation space, CSC Station. We look forward to watching this long-established and reputable company grow and thrive hand in hand with the city of Wilmington.”
