ActivSpace is 42,000 sq ft of new construction for multi-use space in Berkeley. The three-story structure contains 220 small commercial spaces that can be rented by the month. The commercial spaces vary in size from 80 sq ft to 500 sq ft. The micro units are very affordable for tenants to rent and use as small incubator, arts and craft studios and retail spaces. A series of storefronts along the active 7th Street provide plenty of exposure for the local artisans and craftsmen to create, display and sell their products or services.The corrugated steel building complements the industrial neighborhood.
