Increased utilization of City owned real-estate for use of entrepreneurs as meeting or office space. This will add a new revenue stream for the city by renting out these space on hourly basis through a phone bar-code scan mechanism and provide an economical way for collaboration to take place in different areas of the city. Given the high office space vacancy rate in Calgary this service once pilot tested and proven on city owned spaces could be rolled out to private property owners to join while city charges an overhead fee. The service after successful history could be sold to a private firm to manage.
