Supposedly, the stacked shipping containers are not structurally sound enough for Berkeley. Jim Mason, the owner of the facility, has received a ‚Äúvacate and abate‚Äù notice unless he can prove, in three days, the “shipping containers as a new rated assembly for habitable buildings.”
It’ll be sad to see it go. It had been the home for several fabulous events and art projects including: How To Destroy The Universe Festival (2004 & 2005), The Clock Works (2005), Neverwas Haul (2006).
Jim Mason has stated that he is looking to move everything to Oakland. Hopefully, the new home bring less bureaucratic headaches.
