Downtown Chandler Construction – Walkability is Coming!

This morning is a glorious day.  Construction is in full swing for doubling the size of the sidewalks in front of Gangplank 3.0.  It was one of the things that we required to move.  Seeing it be built before our eyes is great.

Normally the sound of a jackhammer would be irritating, but today it is sweet sweet music.  This is the beginning of a new chapter for downtown Chandler and we are excited to be involved.  In a time when other cities are panicking Chandler is preparing for it’s future.

Oh, and by the way, you’ll need to enter from the back door for the next week or so.

Downtown Chandler Zip Bikes

All paper work is signed and we are on our way to a new downtown Chandler location.  As part of that plan we are serious about a walkable/bikeable city.  We are going to assemble a half dozen bicycles to be used as “zip” bikes.  Similar to ZipCar‘s only with no cost associated.  Reserve. Ride. Return. It’s that simple.

Authority Labs has donated our first ZipBike. (below)

In true Gangplank style we are looking to build the rest of the fleet from scratch.  Our first project bike is an “Overkill Chopper” from Atomic Zombie Extreme Machines.
