Artspace Mesa Lofts is a 50 unit multifamily development consisting of live/work space for artists and their families. This is a property designed and constructed by artists for artists and the advancement of artistic endeavors.
Units vary from studio, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms with rents serving households below 60% of the areas median income levels. The project includes 1,450 sf of ground floor commercial space for non-profit arts organizations and creative businesses, as well as 2,900 sf of community space for events, exhibitions, and educational programs.
The most critical of all amenities was the design of a working art studio space provided in each unit! This allows residents to practice their craft without the expense of renting an art studio. The single-story community building will be used for artistic community outreach with schools and nonprofit organizations, as well as professional training on how to market and manage a small business in the art industry.
Artspace Mesa Lofts was designed to be eco-friendly. In order to achieve LEED for Homes Midrise Platinum certification, the project incorporated various energy efficient systems including LED lighting, low flow water restrictions, and more! Additional amenities on this project include; water feature, amphitheater, garages, art studio flex space, gathering and assembly space, artistic supply storage areas, fruit trees, and a lush landscape.
