Fifty new artist live/work spaces at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell opened in June of 2012: Western Avenue Lofts.
Western Avenue Lofts in Lowell was built with a variety of floor plans and offers many different options. The building has a layout of columns and windows that allows for wide-open spaces, tremendous light, and a range of unit sizes. Lofts tenants are able, and encouraged, to personalize their spaces. If anything is built in, it must follow code and the tenant must be prepared to remove it if and when they leave, but otherwise freedom and creativity are the rule. Tenants are encouraged to personalize common hallway walls outside their lofts with paint and visuals to showcase their art. In January 2013 there are only a few Lofts still available.
New rental units, including artist live/work spaces, will soon be available in Lowell, Mass., offering a range of sizes, layouts, and affordable pricing structures.
The Appleton Mills in Lowell's historic downtown will provide affordable live/work space for artists and their families, with tenants decided by housing lottery and an Artist Selection Board.

UPDATE - Temporary price reductions at The Lofts at Westinghouse
One Westinghouse Plaza, a classic mill building in Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood that we've previously featured on ArtistLink, have announced aggressive, temporary price reductions designed to sell the initial group of live/work spaces as quickly as possible. The second floor flats that were $235,000 are now $175,000. Third floor flats were $259,000, and are now $219,000. The two-level lofts have gone from $279,000 to $229,000 and the corner flats from $350,000 to $249,000.
Read below for an update on this project, for which ArtistLink has assisted through design, financing, and legal issues. Housed in an historic mill building, the Gorse Mill Studios includes 33 work-only studio condominiums and a gallery. 60% of the studios have been sold and artists are moving in!
Artistlink has been assisting in the development of this large artist project in Marlborough. This is a great opportunity for artists looking for a lot of space at a reasonable price. Find out more at www.rlofts.com. Check out the stunning interior photos attached at the bottom of this posting!

NEW! - ArtistLink was first introduced to Yin Peet's vision for an abandoned granite quarry in Acton in 2006 while she was negotiating to purchase the 12.9 acre preperty from the Town of Acton. Three years later the land has been transferred and the major elements of an arts complex have emerged.
