With Launch Now, Red Canyon Software is revitalizing a historic downtown, attracting talent to the region and positioning Titusville to become the Silicon Valley of Space 2.0.
Some companies engage in fascinating and far-reaching endeavors. Such is the case with Red Canyon Software, Inc. an aerospace engineering and software company based in Denver, Co. The company, founded in 2000, develops cutting-edge technology and space flight software to help humankind explore space and other planets, as well as search for advanced renewable resources on Earth. It has been intricately involved with important missions ranging from searching for water on Mars, to analyzing the composition of distant comets and building the next human spacecraft.
Red Canyon clients include government agencies such as NASA, JPL, DOD, NOAA and NREL, as well as major contractors such as Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, Millennium Engineering & Integration, KBRwyle and a.i. solutions. With so many clients and engineers located in the Space Coast, the company has announced plans to open its first regional office in historic downtown Titusville. The plans encompass much more than that, however, as Red Canyon plans to create a unique, welcoming community for the next phase of aerospace research, commercial space flight and NASA’s mission to get humans to Mars.
A software company will soon renovate this 1920s-era building, but what's inside right now? Take a peek. .
(August 13, 2017) - It's been a mystery for years — what's in the upper levels of the old Walker Hotel in downtown Titusville?
"From the parking lot it looks like storage to me," said Allison Violette, a lifelong resident of Titusville.
The near century-old building is a landmark in downtown, housing a handful of businesses on its ground floor. But despite it's bustling lower level, a certain secrecy looms above.
So what's up there exactly? Not much right now, but that will all change in the months to come, as Denver-based Red Canyon Software looks to flip the old building into a center for innovation. They're hoping it will eventually help turn Titusville into a "Silicon Valley 2.0."
With plans to completely rejuvenate the 1920s-era building, Red Canyon founders Barry and Laura Hamilton will turn the dilapidated second and third floors into 20 to 24 "boutique-style" apartments alongside a "collaborative work space." The team will also renovate the club room and rear balcony, and the entryway will be restored to its "original historic magnificence," according to the project's website.
