Pittsburgh Army of Artist Space: Artists who need space

Great news from John LeDonne:

all the info is here.

I have finally finalized the deal for the Army of Artist Space and it is now time to take action. This space is for artists and photographers.

For all the new members that are not aware of the AOA space deal, here it is:
I have been working for over a year to find space for artists and photographers and have been negotiating a deal for space in the strip. I chose the strip because of its convenient location and it is really the center of Pittsburgh. The space is large enough to house plenty of AOA members. I was looking at two options for how we could afford the space and here is what I came up with. We can either have a group of 15 of us at $100.00 a month or 30 of us at $50.00 a month. Personally I am for 15 members. We would all be required to pay a $100 security deposit. The space is completely open so there will not be personal spaces, I really can not see this being an issue. We are a collaborative group and I want it to be open space. If you are looking for personal space this is not the space for you. The space is newly remolded and very clean - this is a great deal and I would like to get this for all of us.

If you are interested I need you to be 100% serious and I need you to call me at 412-853-4932. Please, no emails because it gets to be to much and time consuming.

If you need to view the space, call me at 412-853-4932 and I will take you.

Space Details:
2300 square feet, High ceilings, hardwood floors, steel security door, 24 hour access, security code access, heating and air-conditioning, bathroom, sink, lighting, electrical outlets, plenty of parking.

The landlord will add anything we need at a cost.

Rental requirements:
$100 each dollar deposit, $750 a month rent plus utilities (the utilities will only be $5 to $10 a month extra per person) for first three months then $1500 a month there after. Everyone will need to sign a one year contract.

Option one: 15 members $100 a month.
Option two: 30 members $50 a month

Guardian Self Storage 2815 Liberty Avenue

This deal is only going to be here for another 30 days before we lose the space to another leaser so I need everyone that wants in to contact me ASAP.

I want to thank you all for your cooperation and patience.

John LeDonne
