It’s Official!

Five months ago i3 Detroit was started based on a vision that was inspired by the many other hackerspaces building and growing throughout the world. This inspiration found itself only with a website and a call out to all Detroit area makers, crafters, coders, artists and thinkers to come together to build a new community space and environment. Five months and a dozen dedicated members later we have finally been able to secure a home for this new community called i3 Detroit.

As of today i3 Detroit has secured a space at 322 E. 4th St. in Royal Oak Mi. We will be working hard over the next couple of weeks to build out our new creative environment. Once we have finalized the space we will be hosting a Grand Opening Event please stay tuned for more details.

Here are some photos of the new space and we will continue to post new photos as we make the space our own.

Congratulations Team for making this happen!
