      • Unlike separately purchased amenities or utilitarian co-located services, Lodgic delivers an uplifting, service-oriented, collaborative, and hospitality-minded experience.  It serves the modern worker’s need for flexibility and support in key areas of life and at all times of day.
      • In 2014, the Moose organization commissioned a group of the nation’s leading brand, research, experience, and design partners to develop a completely new kind of community experience that is true to the historic core of Moose.  The facility design is bright, modern, energizing, and productive – the kind of place you want to stay all day, every day.
      • The first Lodgic everyday Community will open its doors in Champaign, Illinois, in May/June, 2018.  Additional facilities are anticipated to degut across the Midwest region over the next three years in markets like Madison, WI; Ann Arbor, MI; and Lexington, KY.
