Designed with the artist in mind live/work apartments come in all shapes and sizes. Each live/work building has different historical character or finishes but they all feature open loft style spaces with amenities designed to appeal to artists, such as ample natural light, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and primed walls. Some of the apartments also feature amenities such as utility sinks, atrium skylights, exterior decks, access to sound proof rooms for musicians, and direct street access. Most of the live/work units have been constructed as a “green” and qualify for LEED certification.
For creative entrepreneurs and artists live/work apartments provide an affordable location not only to work but to live, create and showcase artwork. When discussing what was most attractive about the live/work lifestyle one Martineau resident said “The concept of being surrounded by a community of creative minds is appealing, as well as being involved in an up and coming “arts” neighborhood.” Ranging in size from 850 square feet to over 1,500, from storefronts to second and third story units finding the right live/work unit is just a click away.
Additional live/work spaces may be available through Dwelling Place in Verne Barry Place or the Herkimer. Contact Heather Ibrahim at 855-0418 to find out more.
