Launch Now proposes the revitalization and rehabilitation of its properties for reasons that promote health, economic, educational, aesthetic, cultural and general welfare of the community. By protecting, enhancing and upgrading these important historical buildings, we acknowledge history while simultaneously designing and building for the future with the explicit goal of increasing the occupancy rates, economic vitality, and property values within the Titusville Community Redevelopment Agency, thus providing long-term stability for the surrounding community.
We believe Titusville is uniquely positioned to become the Silicon Valley of Space 2.0. We are exhilarated with the opportunity to revitalize historic buildings of this grandeur into vibrant spaces fueled by innovative technology and to ignite new ways in which the downtown community of Titusville will connect.

The “Old Walker Apartment Building”, also formerly known as the “Walker Hotel,” will be transformed into 20-24 boutique-style apartments. The development team will also be renovating its magnificent clubroom and rear balcony, plus re-activating the historic front balcony for parade viewing onto Washington Avenue. The development team intends to transform its entryway and front staircase to its original historic magnificence. Apartment and clubroom designs will be featured on the website as they become available.
Please contact Kelsey Rosinski for apartment rental information.
We will continue the tradition in Titusville of a downtown which is populated mostly with locally-owned retailers, offering the highest quality of service and merchandise. We will make every effort to lease any vacant spaces to tenants who will cater to the widest possible customer base, serving the needs of our community.
We are researching creating entrances to some retail establishments along the rear exterior of Washington Avenue, thereby creating new energy and use surrounding the entire building. Improved landscape design, additional outside seating, exterior speakers, misters, water features, and awnings are all possible improvements which would enhance the customer experience.
For retail leasing inquiries, please contact Holly Carver.
Launch Now features a coveted corner location on the Coast-to-Coast Bike Path. The developers plan to maximize this location with bike parking in the rear of the building. Surrounding the entire building including its historic pedestrian arcade along historic Washington Avenue, the developers intend to add landscaping, water-filling stations, possible water features and outside seating. Misters and outside speakers playing soft music will enhance the customer experience for pedestrians, bikers, and drivers alike. We also intend to offer an electric-car charging port.
As participants, investors, and enthusiasts in the space industry, the development team of Launch Now wishes to take full advantage of unobstructed, exclusive views of the Vehicle Assembly Building in the later phases of this development.
Launch Now will be completed in phases. The first phase will be reactivating and re-imagining the “Old Walker Apartment Building”, also formerly known as the “Walker Hotel,” into 20-24 boutique-style apartments. We will also be renovating its magnificent clubroom and rear balcony, plus re-activating the historic front balcony for parade viewing onto Washington Avenue. Whenever possible, we will be restoring the building’s historic design and structural elements. The development team intends to transform its entryway and front staircase to its original historic magnificence. Apartment and clubroom designs will be featured on the website as they become available. Anticipated completion of the apartments is late 2018. Amenities within the Walker Apartments will be targeted at tech-forward “Millennials.” Its clubhouse may double as a co-working lounge space.
The corner building, originally known as the “Old Bank & Trust", is a Beaux Arts Classical bank featuring three arched windows on the main floor in addition to large bronze gas street lights hand made in New Orleans on the exterior facade. The interior features a graceful curving Georgian stairway and a serpentine shaped teller window, both made of walnut. The immediate plan for this magnificent building is to convert it into a collaborative work space and headquarters for the Red Canyon aerospace employees and affiliates.
