1628 Ltd is a Coworking office located in the historic Doctor’s Building in Cincinnati Ohio. It was founded in 2016 by Tamara Schwarting(1)(2). The name 1628 derives from the moment in history when the word, ‘coworking’ is first published in a book by John Jackson titled “The Worthy Church-Man.”(3) In addition to being recognized for its visual appeal (4) and hospitality (5), 1628 curates art from the Cincinnati community on a quarterly basis. Installations have included:

  • December 2017: Treasures in Black & White
  • March 2018: The Pieces I Am
  • June 2018: Chro•Ma
  • September 2018: Behind the Mask (6)
  • March 2019: /just to be alive/ (7)
  • June 2019: No Vacancy

In March 2019, 1628 Ltd expanded for a second time from the original 6000 square feet to 16000 square feet, adding second and third-floor private offices (8).
