Engine is moving down the street, to the Polakewich Block which directly faces the organization’s own building, the Marble Block. The 6000sf space features two floors, Main Street level and a lower floor opening onto Laconia Street (formerly Tote Road). The space is under light renovation on the street level which will house the organization’s current operations of gallery, Maine FabLab and education space, in addition to a small coffee bar and expanded retail space. The move was prompted by a need for additional space for programming and a desire to be in close proximity to the Marble Block in the future.
Operations will end on July 31 at Engine’s current space at 265 Main Street after almost 3 years. Engine expects to be partially operating between mid-and-end of July in the new space at 128 Main Street.
