From time to time folks ask me about any artist workspace living arrangements available in DC. The following sounds like great news! The Cultural Development Corporation reports:
We are working with Union Place Phase I, LLC, to qualify 30 artists, arts administrators, arts educators and their families for affordable artist live/work apartments at 3rd and K, NE, in the NoMa area of Washington, DC. The artist housing units at The Loree Grand will be live/work housing — apartments designed primarily as residential, with studio/work space as an ancillary use. The building will feature studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom with den units ranging from 596 to 1362 square feet.
The Loree Grand includes over 200 residential units, a roof garden, a courtyard, a gym and ground floor retail, all within steps of the New York/Florida Avenue Metro Station and Union Station. Individual units include washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances and open floorplans. Construction is under way with occupancy expected mid 2010.
