Pat and I checked out another space today. It’s in a loft building in the Northeast corner of DUMBO, near (actually, surrounded by) the big power transfer station. The F train is a few blocks away and the A/C a walkable distance. The rent is $2300/month with a 1 or 2 year lease. The owner listed the size as 1100sf, so it’s probably more like 1000 in real life. The space is divided into 3 windowed rooms (2 are about 9×15, the third is about 12×10) plus a center hall/room (10×10) where we could have lockers or rolling storage units. The views are pretty good. There is a large private bathroom and a second small sink. The layout is not ideal for having big classes but could be good if several people wanted to work independently and had different music tastes, for example.

Overall I’d say that this is a nice space, but probably not the best for our needs. Option #1 has similar space, a more flexible layout, and much better train access. Gowanus has similar train access but more space and other benefits for less money.

More photos after the jump…
