SAN LEANDRO, CA--(Marketwired - February 11, 2014) - When is a commercial building not just a commercial building? When it creates a disruptive, new definition for a place to work. In short: The Gate. Animated by the creative energy of its artists-in-residence, tech-startup visionaries, and makers of all stripes, The Gate is simply not like other commercial buildings. Well, it is, perhaps, reminiscent of such earlier, precedent-setting New York City landmarks as the iconic Brill Building, where, the art and business of music was turned on its ear, or The Factory, where Warhol and friends lived and breathed entirely new art forms. It also takes a digital page from Silicon Valley's Xerox PARC and all those suburban garages, where things like mice and killer apps were invented and then went on to ignite -- and change -- the world.
Fusing art and commerce in 1,000 - 10,000 square foot spaces
Today, the Gate goes beyond the concept of "commercial building" to meld commerce and creativity for 21st century movers and shakers: artists, technologists, and makers. Proud of its 1940s labor roots as a Plymouth manufacturing plant, The Gate is currently offering unique spaces from 1,000-10,000 square feet --factory-raw, office-finished, and build-to-suit. Building amenities abound, including ultra-fast fiber cable throughout, collaborative kitchens, and a central square designed to promote tenant-curated events, community gatherings, and commerce, in addition to the purposefully-designed private spaces where passionate people pursue their daily work.
Observing that "we're at the beginning of a new Renaissance of art and commerce," Andrew Johnstone, design artist for The Man at Burning Man as well as an artist for the British Royal Family, continues, "I've come to The Gate because it's the Florence of our time, where art and commerce can flourish together."
Espen Silvertsen, CEO of Type A Machines, says, "The Gate is the ideal place for a tech startup. We are building a 3D printing collaboration hub here."
"I'm at The Gate because sharing large-scale art within a community, within a building, is a dream come true," says John Baden, designer and resident muralist at The Gate.
The Gate newcomer Dustin Felder, CEO of O2 Treehouses notes, "I need both vertical and horizontal space to grow my business. For building and assembly, The Gate is the place to be. I'm getting a sweet deal.
Location is still central
That age-old real estate maxim of "location, location, location" still holds true today, and The Gate is ideally situated, close to Oakland International Airport and the 880 freeway for easy access to Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose. San Leandro itself, incorporated in 1872, is undergoing a remarkable transformation from traditional industrial city to innovation hub. Located on the flip side of San Leandro's West Gate Center, already anchored by a Home Depot and Office Depot, The Gate provides tenants with cost-effective, steps-away accessibility to the tools of their varied trades.
Some of those already in on the action and doing remarkable work at The Gate include:
bEEcHARGE!!! Alameda County's Public Defender Supervisor Dave Klaus, who leads bEEcHARGE!!! on and off the Burning Man playa, says, "Thanks to the vision and collaboration of The Gate, our community has found a home where we will have the space, the tools, and the collaboration capacity for building large-scale art projects." www.beecharge.com

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
