Lofts at Westinghouse

In Artist Studio Space Available, Property Available for Sale on July 1, 2010 at 1:56 pm

I met with the Developer of the Lofts at Westinghouse yesterday.  They updated us that they plan to advertise the affordable artist units for sale in September, 2010.

Now is a good time to make sure your BRA Artist Certificate is current, and to look into mortgage financing and what kind of mortgage loan you can afford.  Questions?  Call us.

There are artists who have already bought market-rate artist units in the building, and the work-only spaces on the second floor sold up very quickly to artists and creative types.  (Is work-only studio space for sale a good option for artists?  Should we be encouraging more of it?  Let us know!)  Reports we hear from those artists are positive about the building!

The developer is continuing a regular schedule of Open Houses, if you haven’t visited this building yet.

Innovative Space Awards for Existing Buildings that Serve Artists–Apply Now

In Artist Studio Space Available, Opportunities on April 4, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Do you represent a Boston Artist Building?  Submit an application for the awards.  The Boston Center for the Arts was a finalist last round–your building could be too!

The MetLife Foundation Innovative Space Awards (ISA) program recognizes, rewards, and promotes successful artist space development projects that exhibit innovation, affordability for artists, sustainability, and community impact.

The ISA is a competitive national awards program developed by LINC and MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning in partnership with both the MetLife Foundation and the Ford Foundation. The program emphasizes the role affordable artist space projects play in community revitalization and socially progressive community development, and will increase awareness of replicable, sustainable approaches and models.

In December 2009, the MetLife Foundation Innovative Space Awards annouced awards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to provide support for six winning projects. The ISAs currently have an open call for entries to apply for the second and final cycle of awards. Online applications must be completed by 5pm EST on April 23, 2010.

The ISA seeks to identify opportunities for developers and urban planners to weave artists into community development strategies, and to enlist artists for projects that contribute to neighborhood revitalization through their concern for communities’ environmental well being, economic renewal, and diversity.
