On Wednesday May 1st, we'll have a soft opening for our coworking space. We're located in the back of 469 Franklin (near Allen). Walk down the pathway on the right side of the building, and you'll find us in back.

Our goal is to bring together people with varying skills that might contribute to various projects.

Monday thru Friday

  • 8AM-9AM - Space will be available for discussion, 36in36 projects, or projects, questions you need help with.
  • 9AM-4PM - We'll try to be quieter for those that need to work
  • 4PM-6PM - Similar to 8AM-9AM
  • Evenings, we will have events, or workspace for projects when the demand reaches that level.

Saturday

  • 10AM-5PM - Open - Demonstration of local DIY-projects, possible presentations by out of town visitors with concepts/ideas for development

Sunday

  • Noon - 5PM - Open

Just the Basics...

There is no charge to use the space, if you learn about a project you think you might contribute to, or know of someone who might, we just ask that you be open to that. The downside, it's not super fancy. The chairs aren't great, it's not super bright, and the property is old, very old.

For food and coffee, we ask you support one of the local restaurants or coffee shops. Cafe 59 has donated some items, if you get hungary, we hope you'd try them out. Earlier in the day, Caffeology on Allen and North Pearl has a variety of coffee and espresso based drinks.

About 36in36

Beginning July 1, 2019, we will release one project per month, for up to 36 months. Individuals that contribute to a project earn a commensurate amount of equity. Individuals that submit an accepted idea, and the key contributor for each project recieve a small piece of equity in all the projects.

Some perspecitve...

The 36in36 project, is really misnamed. It's real beginning was June 26, 1993. An article from the Buffalo News is here. When I told the reporter I 'had some ideas' for the place, was probably prudent I didn't say, 'might take 26 years, but I have this idea...', but that's where we are. At the time, it appeared like an area that would be receptive to different ideas, and would benefit should the city ever bounce back. Some aspects of both remain true today.

I mention the history just so it's clear, we're not dependent on the first project to be a homerun... or even a bunt single. The space was here long before us, and will be here long after. That's important, because I'm asking you to participate. I'm putting up the space, and the majority of the work on the first ten projects.

A few years ago, I wrote about the project here

Bigger plane, longer run way

The front units of the building are short term rentals. The idea here is two fold. First, it helps pay the bills while we work on the projects 'in back'. Second, it gives us the opportunity to bring in people from around the world that may either have an idea for a project, or be beneficial in some other way.
