New Space Search 2013-14

From Dallas Makerspace
Jump to: navigation, search

The lease at our current building is coming to an end soon, so the Dallas Makerspace is looking to move to a place that will fit our growth over the past 3 years and will accommodate future growth. This page will be used to document potential locations for the new space.



  • We're currently working with a real estate broker (named Corby Hodgkiss from Mercer Company). We've signed a contract to give him exclusive rights to negotiate on our behalf. We encourage you to help us with the search, but it would violate our contract if you contacted any of the listing owners on our behalf.
  • When you see NNN (triple net) after the price, that means the "tenant or lessee agrees to pay all real estate taxes, building insurance, and maintenance (the three Nets)". Corby said that can easily tack on an extra $1.50 per sq ft per year (depending on the size and location of course).

Requirements (up for debate, framework taken from previous space search)

These requirements are based on the Draft of Structured Requirements For New Space Searches.



  • We're looking for "Flex" space. Like our current space, Flex Space is a "flexible configuration of office or showroom space combined with, for example, manufacturing, laboratory, warehouse, distribution." [1]


  • Currently we spend $3.84 per sq ft per year (total of $2,000 per month) on rent.
  • Check out current financials for an idea about what we can afford:
    • We currently have about $4k a month in regular expenses. Those regular expenses include rent and utilities, basically the cost to run an empty space is $4k.
    • We had $15,600 in monthly revenue from membership dues in the month of March. Paul Brown expects this to be up to $18-20k by the time our lease expires in July.


  • At least ~15,000 sq. ft. total
    • Currently, we have 6,251 sq. ft. total.
    • At our current size, we could easily use 12,000 sq ft immediately. We're growing at a rate of ~30 members a month and we need to be thinking about growth over the next 3 years too.
  • At least 5,000 sq. ft. of air conditioned space, but preferably more.
    • As much air conditioned space as possible. Office space is more valuable to us. Especially during the Summer.
    • Currently, we have 3,484 sq. ft. of air conditioned space, but unfortunately no rooms larger than 14' x 25'.
  • At least 5,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space.
    • Currently, we have 2,712 sq. ft. of warehouse space.


  • Rooms suitable for meetings, lectures, and classes
    • One room needs to be especially large (more than 25' x 25') for large meetings.
    • Large classrooms rooms can also be filled with tables so the area can be utilized as community workspace when they're not being used for public events.
  • Warehouse-like work area for larger power tools and storage
  • Garage door and the ability to get a vehicle inside the warehouse easily
    • In the absence of a ground level ramp, we would need to purchase a ramp for around $6.5k.
  • At least one smaller, private meeting room for 10 people
  • Kitchen (room with a sink and a counter), oven preferable


  • Sufficient nearby parking for 30+ cars after 6pm


  • Several 220V and possibly 480V power outlets for large tools and welders.
  • Needs to be wired for 3 phase power for HAAS mill, lathe and other large equipment.


  • They need to allow us to sign the lease in the name of DMS rather than having members/directors personally signing the lease.

Nice To Have

  • Within walking distance of a DART rail station
  • Air conditioned room with access to external ventilation, for the laser cutter
  • Small room with a wet wall, preferably one that backs up to a sink on the other side, for a dark room
  • Nearby hardware store
  • Nearby convenience store and restaurants
  • Outdoor space, a "backyard"


Search Tools

  • Loop Net has a pretty good search engine and a fair number of listings.

  • Min Divisible To: 5,000 sqft
  • Max Contiguous: 20,505 sqft

The property is listed at $5.50/sq. ft. and is near the geographic center of the member map. They might go cheaper, as the majority of the complex is vacant.
This location is less than 1/2 mile from the Farmers Branch DART Rail station... about the same distance that the current space is from DART Rail. There are a variety of restaurants within a couple of miles of the location. Turners Hardware and Salvation Army Thrift Store are less than 2 miles away at Josey and Valley View.
This is 3 buildings down from where Nick's office is for Multiforms. Another local highlight is that Tanner's Electronics is just down the street. As well as Marshall's BBQ. [3]

Rejection Reason: Corby says they only have 14k sf available and it looks like they would have to demo back some office space to give us enough warehouse.
