Need help narrowing down cage for GCC

I rearranged the area where the bird cage would go and did some remeasuring. I have a total space of 26''LX24"WX62"H (cage can come with/without stand) or 35''LX17''Wx32"H (Space is on a shelf, cage can't have stand). Thank you.
(is this an off brand?)

Sage has the dome top version of the first one and seems happy in it. But lots of people say the bigger one is best

I know you haven't quite got the room for a HQ flight cage so if you can get the (24x18x57) . This one would be ok for 1 bird I reckon

Just try to get the biggest cage you can fit and provide loads to do in and out of the cage

- Alexandrine parakeets Kona, Peaches, George (missing), Holly (RIP), & Orange winged Amazon parrot Paulie

Biggest you can get but would go with 5/8 or 1/2 not 3/4 inch bar spacing. Both of my greencheeks are in 24 x 20 dome topped cage with 1/2 bar spacing. I feel if you have a smaller sized greencheek there is a change 3/4 may be to big and head may get caught .
