    I still have an issue with the 3 year lease, putting a hold on possible growth.

    Sounds like a good option too - I guess some of the big questions to distinguish this one from 121 e 5th st are: how important is proximity to Downtown Loveland (exposure at festivals, night on the town, the armory, etc)? Proximity to coffee shops/restaurants etc. ? Is it worth the higher rent to get that exposure? Would it result in higher membership/revenue?

      The old adage in in the real estate industry is "Location, Location, Location". That being said, any space we choose has to meet a certain set of basic requirements. Can it support the activities we plan to host. What membership number is needed to support the rent/utilities per month? Will the activities it will support attract sufficient membership to generate the needed cash flow?

      Beyond the basics, the questions start getting into more speculative futures things, like what if we need to grow. The lease for the 15th St property will likely be 2-3 years. Based on discussions at the Colorado Hacker council, it sounds like others have moved multiple times as they grew. Would a 2-3 year lease cause problems with growth. (Is worrying about growth a cart before the horse type thing?)

    My husband Darrin attended the tour yesterday instead of me, but he was impressed with the space for a few reasons. 1. the potential for brewery traffic as well as customers from the Fastenal store. These are like minded people for the "makers" Also the industrial nature of the space and set up for both "shop" side and "electronics" side. Negatives were the walkability to downtown and the ease of parking and access to that corner. Also we spoke to the Grimm Brothers guys and they mentioned the Thompson Brewery has been in the works for several years. They may not be moving as fast to open as we think????? If they have an actual lease then thats good!
