Workspace, studios, and warehouses.

I have been looking for a space, either warehouse or backroom, garage or the like.

I would like to work on small projects, sculpting, painting, working on vintage mopeds and bicycles. I have contacted Delta Properties about some spaces on Grandville, but I always seem to get the feeling they are trying to upsell the place. I have a price range per month of around $200. Need not much more than 200 sq. feet, needs to be heated and safe.

Where in this town can I find such a space, and if possible with a month to month lease.

You might want to check with DeVries Companies, too. I know they kind of share that niche with Delta.

How about a U-store place? Monthly lease. Grow or shrink as needed. I think there are some that are heated (or you could bring a space heater).

$200/month is pretty cheap, so it's going to be hard to find (which I'm sure you're already aware :) )

What you need is someone with some industrial walkout basement space that they don't need and be willing to make a little income on it, and where you can easily get peds in and out (like with a garage door). What about the backside of some of the buildings on the West side of S. Division? Like where Scavenger Hunt is? I keep thinking that the building with All City Kicks has space in the back (?).

The nice things about mopeds, it that they can easily be carried up and down stairs by two people.

I guess I am looking for a more industrial space or garage area. I am thinking of contacting some of the division area businesses but most use the basements. I konw $200 is a low amount, but not considering the total required square footage.

I would love to find something in eastown but all areas are taken as far as i know.

There is a couple of old warehouses on Godfrey that rent out space. Exactly what your looking for, I believe they go as low as $200/month also.

Delta owns those, Many do not have heat. Some have insulation pouring out of the walls and holes in the floors.

Having been a tenant of Delta in the past, I know they have spaces in that price range - however it ain't gonna be very great space. A lot of what they offer cheap is divided by chicken wire and padlocks without heat. Their security and common space maintenance is also well below average.

Like others have suggested above, you best bet is probably going to be to find an individual with a little extra space sitting empty. An extra garage or back room in a small industrial building.

I'd get in the car and start driving around where you'd like to be located and try to find anything that might have merit. Many times, small industrial or contractor style operations have slightly larger spaces than they really need - and yet don't have the energy or time to actively market the extra SF for lease. You might just stumble into a great deal from someone who'd simply like a couple hundred bucks a month extra in their pocket (off the books).

There might be some place on Godfrey on the SW side in that price range. I know an artist-type who rented one of those spaces. I think he only paid around 150 a month. It was one of those old warehouse buildings.

What about along Wealthy? Maybe the Bear Manor guys know of something.

We had a Delta Property space at the building on Market. A little scary at times but not too bad. I can't remember the rent but it was crazy cheap.

I heard talk of space in the $200 range on Straight St. Sounded like work space that was heated. I think it is off of Wealthy west of 131.

Someone who has a space on Division replied to me:

"I rented a studio space from Delta for a number of years, a rip off but I did it anyway cause they almost have a monopoly on that stuff. the spaces are rarely heated or safe..."
