We still haven't met many of our new neighbours and don't know the logistics of the of the parking lot are after hours. If you are driving, please park on 15th St NE. If you are taking transit, the closest stops are:

Additionally, Route 32 runs from Huntington Hills to Rundle (Sunridge) Station and stops right outside our door!

Be sure to come down this Tuesday and others to check out our new, improved space!

It’s hard to believe we’ve been in our new, improved space for almost a whole year! In that time, we’ve met new friends, tackled new challenges and doubled our membership! We spent two years at our first space where 1,000 square feet on two levels suited us just fine. In just one year, we’ve outgrown our 2,300 square foot bay in the deep southeast of Calgary.

We’re pleased to announce that Protospace is moving to a new, bigger, better space! Our new space is located in the Airways/McCall Industrial area in northeast Calgary. Our new home is located at Bay 108, 1530 27th Avenue NE http://goo.gl/maps/l0EnG . The space is about 15 blocks away from the nearest C-Train station and the 72/73 bus route runs only five block from the new location.There is ample parking available on 15th St for drivers. Pictures of the space are located here. http://pics.uddf.net/index.php?/category/4

This weekend we are going to need help moving; if you have time throughout the day you are welcome to join us. We plan to start at the old space at 12001 44 St SE at around 8am and go all day long until we finish or burn out and then start again the next day to move the final bits and do a cleanup of our old empty space.

Currently we have one large truck booked with a power tailgate and three trailers for sure, any other vehicles that can haul anything, minivans, cars, trucks, etc... are a welcome addition especially if any have a trailer hitch.  We can also possibly use some extra tarps, straps or ropes to help secure loads in trailers/trucks.
