Ideal and cheap San Francisco location for a hacker space

Ideal and cheap San Francisco location for a hacker space

My friend Greg Long of the wonderful Gama-Go emporium of cool products is looking for people who are interested in starting a hacker space in a building that Gama-Go might move into.

My partner Chris and I are scratching our heads and wondering if there’s someone who’d make for an awesome and complimentary neighbor to our shop.

Basically this is a 3600 sqft space. But 1400 sq ft amounts to a warehouse space. That 1400 sqft GAMA-GO would be interested in if the tenant didn’t want it.

The rest of it is this large, hardwood floored open space with a huge multi-faceted window and street entrance/storefront. 

It’s a nicer, larger space than our office/store area and would make for an AWESOME shop or office + shop or workspace + store, or any number of things.

The real kicker is the price. The landlord is offering it at *well* under market value

I quite literally had this proposed to me this morning and have been scratching my head about it all day. I can’t tell you how much I’d love to have something like a homebrew 3D printing club or a do-it-yourself maker store with workshops next to us. Something fun, ya know?

Anyway, if you know of anyone that might be a good fit, hit me up and I’ll give them the scoop.
