Both companies are related via co-ownership. “Since our first days as partners of the Sixth Street Bistro, Ben and I have worked closely in partnership, and Argonaut Investments is a logical extension of that” says Meyer.
“It was time for us to have a distinctive space with high visibility for our office, which has been in The Dalles for the past six years. Remodeling the iconic Auto Electric Building into two separate spaces was a great solution and will provide a new business hub on the west end of downtown The Dalles,” said Meyer. “One half is now Auto Electric Co-Working space, and the other is the new Copper West building. It’s a great way to grow our business and invest in The Dalles in one project.”
