After some four years in his Allston shop, our friend Marty Walsh of Geekhouse Bikes is pleased to announce that he's outgrown the 1,000 square-foot space: the self-described "bespectacled bike geek" is moving into a massive raw space in downtown Boston and he's hoping to make some new friends in the process. Like his (and our) friends at Fringe, a co-working space in Somerville, Marty and his partners at Headquarters Boston hope to unite creatives of all stripes in his new stomping grounds.
Makers, manufacturers, artists, photographers, graphic designers, programmers, if you are the kind of person who is making something we are looking for you. HQ Boston is the premiere location in Boston for small to medium scale manufacturing. We have tens of thousands of square feet of space ready to be turned into your next workshop, studio, or work space. Space is able to be ordered in increments of 500ft, 1000ft and 2000ft, we can accept anyone from small hand crafted shops, to medium scale semi-industrial facilities.
This is flex space, you will be able to get more as your business grows HQ Boston also boasts two working freight elevators, a shared gallery and conference room, fun community setting, and best of all reasonable rent (for real!). We are also in the heart of the Boston innovation district one of the fastest growing areas in Massachusetts. HQ Boston will be for people who want to make things, people who value being green and bicycle friendly, who know the value of solid quality built products.
Construction on interior walls and fixtures starts this month, and Marty mentioned that he hopes to have settled in by springtime. Head over to HeadquartersBoston.com/ for news and updates.
