On the back of their awesome first year, the Made in Lower Eastside (miLES) initiative – which grew from OpenIDEO's Vibrant Cities Challenge, continues to evolve its pursuit of opening underused New York storefronts to fresh possibilities. Their latest project is the miLES Storefront Transformer – a set of modular furnishing that provides basic infrastructure to adapt pop-ups for a variety of uses.
 
In November and December they'll be demonstrating the transformer in action as they incubate seven pop-up ideas in one vacant storefront location across seven weeks. Each iteration of this neighbourhood hub will speak to a different theme: Show, Play, Learn, Share, Make, Shop and Eat. Imagine a shape-shifting storefront – one space, many possibilities: from an independent arts space one week to designer fashion boutique the next, from cooking classroom on Thursday to locavore snack bar on Friday.
 
We're excited by the dynamic nature of this development and the commitment of the miLES team to an always-in-beta approach. If you're keen to support this fresh take on pursuing urban vibrancy and community connections, check out the miLES Storefront Transformer on Kickstarter and show them some love! And if you're in New York later this year, swing by and get amongst the pop-up goodness.
