Today in a community celebration from 12,30-2pm, The Gate of San Leandro began demolition to revamp 8,000 square feet to make way for more interaction, more innovation, more commerce to thrive for the large scale art, tech and maker community in Silicon Valley.The Gate at 1933 Davis Street in San Leandro is a former 18-acre Dodge car plant being transformed into an art, tech, maker hub.   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 Dodge manufacturing plant, The Gate is currently offering unique spaces from 1,000-10,000 square feet — factory-raw, office-finished, and build-to-suit.

The 8,000 square foot revamp in progress will create a central square with a collaborative kitchen area, additional space for community co-working and economical incubator areas for art, tech and makers hosted
