From Cultural Development Corporation's (CuDC) projects in development:

CuDC has partnered with Manna, Inc., to develop approximately 40 affordable work/live housing units for artists and their families at 2414 Douglas Street, NE, in the Woodridge area of Washington, DC. The intent of this project is to create work/live artist housing — units designed primarily as functional studio space with basic living space as an ancillary use. The renovation of an existing warehouse plus new construction will provide units ranging from approximately 700 to 1,050 sq. ft., in addition to 1,390 sq. ft. of flexible space for communal arts activities. To maximize artist eligibility, units will be available at two price points suitable for a range of low- and moderate-income households as defined by DC’s Department of Housing and Community Development. CuDC and Manna anticipate that units for low-income households will be priced starting in the mid-$100Ks. Units for moderate-income households will be priced starting in the mid-$200Ks. Please see page two for income limits.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2008, with occupancy expected in 2009.

  1. That's crazy. It's like a 1 minute walk up right on the same street from me. Hopefully it looks nice.

    I kind of like the idea of having artists near me. The more culture the better.

  2. This is great. For a list of projects like this all over the country, visit my blog and click on the Artist Housing Projects Link.
