There is a 2,064 sq ft space on the second floor of this building. The lease is 12 months, the rent is reasonable, and includes cleaning and power. The location is about 4 blocks from BART, has an elevator, and would require buzz-to-get-in access.
Still, I think this would be a perfect starting location. It’s an open office-style space with one room–that room being a glass-windowed meeting room with a long table and whiteboard. For you geeks out there, it’s 6 blocks from the CO, meaning some killer bandwidth might be available.
Of all our options thus far seen, I think this is our best bet. What say ye? We can be in October 1st if we can all agree this week. Plus, we can have 24/7 access to the space, and there are no residences in the building. It’s ideal for holding small weekend game jams, demoscene events, and LAN parties. And it’d be a great location to use for planning the move to the next location, and gives us a year to prepare for the move.
