It’s been a busy week or so in the world of dedicated ice—read on for the latest! Construction Permits are happening! Earlier this week, we submitted paperwork for our Conditional Use Permit (CUP), which allows the City of Oakland to consider the compatibility of our intended use (spoiler alert: a curling club) with the surrounding neighborhood. The required documents will also form the basis of our application for a building permit, which will be filed in parallel so...

Together we’ve raised over a quarter million dollars for dedicated ice—an amazing achievement. But we’ve still got a long way to go.Over the next few weeks, we’ll be focusing on simple ways you can help, from fundraising tips to volunteer opportunities. One of the little ways you can make a big impact right now is by setting up a recurring monthly donation for a small amount. Pick an amount your pockets won’t miss too much and “set it and forget it.” Your...

As you have all read, the vote for Dedicated Ice is out. So please be sure to vote, and remember you need to be a current member to vote. Our progress with the building is proceeding really well, though slower than we would like. The lease negotiations are done. We have completed an initial phase 1 design (thank you Sean). We have been frantically working on pulling together all the numbers and finally were able to publish the updated business plan (thank you Sarah, Sean,...

We have really good news to report. We have agreed to initial terms with owner of a building located at 8450 Enterprise Way, Oakland CA. The building is 15,000 sq ft -150’ long and 100’ wide with 16’ ceiling. This means our warm room will be on the side. The building is very clean, built in the 1980s with a large parking lot and a HUGE sign! So now the hard work begins. We need to engage with the city of Oakland to obtain a conditional use permit, aggressively continue...

Last time we posted, we stated that the real estate market remains very challenging. Well, that has not changed. We have continued to scour the real estate listings (thank you Sarah) and occasionally find one of interest, but never get any farther than an initial inquiry. Seriously, who doesn’t want a curing club in their industrial space? Well, it seems we have had some good fortune. We identified a suitable building right off 880 at Hegenberger in Oakland, and so far...

The real estate market remains very challenging. Nonetheless, we continue to look for suitable properties to build a DI facility. And, in fact, we have our eyes on one in Oakland off of High St. We were contacted by the broker representing the Burroughs Ave landlord. He has a good understanding of our needs and when he learned that one of his clients wants to sublease part of a large building they lease, he thought of us. After checking it out, it looked very promising so we...

As you are aware, the club has been looking at a property in San Leandro. We had a signed letter of intent, and were very close to being in a position to sign a lease if approved by membership. However, this property also had some significant challenges for us to overcome. Given these hurdles, and the contingencies that would be required in order to sign a lease, the property owner has decided to work with a tenant that will more closely align with the current warehouse use....

We continue to make excellent progress in securing a lease at 2085 Burroughs Ave to build a 5 sheet curling club. A notice was sent out announcing a member meeting on May 23 which will conclude with the closing of the member vote authorizing the Board to move forward. And although we have successfully addressed the hurdles noted in our last DI update, some remain. Meaning, this is not a done deal, but we are working had to address them and plan to have everything sorted...
