Thanks to our friends at Lit San Leandro for this fabulous recap of the Out of the Box event!

The City of San Leandro and Chamber of Commerce organized another in a series of amazing Out of the Box events this past Wednesday on the rooftop of Bayfair Center. It was crazy amazing, featuring several artisans and craftspeople from The Gate (the old West Gate, and the older Dodge factory on Davis St). Some of the demos includedPhaseSpace, FLEETedu, Anna W. Edwards Fine Art, Destination Dinners, Drake’s Brewery, and several more.

All of the demo companies’ representatives were part of fascinating conversations about what they do, how cool or advanced their work was, and (of course) how the gigabit infrastructure serves their businesses.

FLEETedu had a photo-taking drone flying high above our heads and took the shots here. On the right is the evening just getting started. The white L-shaped object was the tent for the demos and companies with computers, monitors, gear, and sample work. (It was much bigger than it looks in this picture.) The white area to the left of the Bee vehicle was where the music and speeches took place.

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
