New Location: In negotiation phase for 2 spaces, 2424 Menaul, and the other at Space is at 7th and Haines.
Menaul location pluses: nice curb appeal, good street view, price wise is a pretty scary:
Haines: huge and spacious, but a little off the beaten path. little sketchy location wise
Tomorrow Charel is going to be getting the negotiation prices from both places. Goal is to match our current affordable, with the possible of bumping up to a bit larger.
Haines is the most HackerSpace-like place, its rough on the edges, ready to be hacked.
Charel is looking at another possible place downtown at first plaza, super un firmed no real details.
