Art Studios

We have secured the 3rd floor of our building and we will soon be renting spaces out to visual artists. Sorry, no music rehearsal upstairs.

The new space will be about 4500 sq ft with windows along the entire North and East facing walls giving it incredible natural light and scenic and industrial views. The building is in The East Van Culture Crawl area and is laid well for having events. There are 6 separate spaces ranging from 117 sq ft to more than 1600 sq ft. The smaller rooms are to be rented as private rooms and the 2 bigger areas are to be broken up into shared spaces. However, at this point, we can divide these into custom-sized spaces or even rent the entire space as a private unit to one person or group. We’re open to proposals.

 

The spaces:

2  private studios at 117 sq ft with large North facing windows that can be opened and can have an extraction fan installed easily.@ $4.75/ Sq ft SOLD OUT

1 private studio at 350 sq ft. This studio has its own separate entrance by the elevator and has large North facing windows that can be opened and can have an extraction fan installed easily. There is the possibility of installing a sink or wash station in this room. This room may be broken up into separate stations if needed.  @ $4.75/ sq ft

1 private studio at 400 sq ft. This is the only room without a window to the outside. It does have a small window to the hallway that lets some natural light in. This window can be covered for those that prefer to work in the dark. This room may be broken up into separate stations if needed. @$4.00/ sq ft

1 separate studio at 1015 sq ft, with 1 wall of large North facing windows and 1 wall of East facing windows. It has excellent exposure as it’s on the corner of Pandora and Victoria with street-level signage possible for this unit only. Many of the windows can be opened. The plan is to break this space into 6 separate stations roughly the same size 4 by the windows and 2 on the other side of the room. The current plan is to make this a room for art forms that make a certian amount of dust and noise. However, if someone wants the entire room or even a large portion of it, we can talk. If we don’t split it up, this area can be completely separate and can even have its own entrance door, wash station, and washroom.

100-125 sq ft in shared space @ $3.75/ sq ft,

100-125 sq ft in shared space at North facing window @ $4.25/ sq ft

1 open area of 1630 sq ft. with 1 wall of large North facing windows. The plan is to break this space into 13 separate stations of varying sizes. 5 along the windows and the rest on the other side of the room. This room is for painters and other artists who don’t make a lot of noise or dust.

50-75 sq ft in shared space @ $3.75/ sq ft (1 of 4 left)

100-125 sq ft in shared space @ $3.75/ sq ft

100-125 sq ft in shared space at North facing window @ $4.25/ sq ft (3 of 5 left)

We are currently removing the carpets, installing track lighting, skookum cleaning stations, wifi, a lounge, and a few other niceties. Then we just need a fresh lick of paint and we’ll be ready to go.

We are opening as soon as possible. We hope to have artists move in beginning Nov 15th. If you’d like to submit an application list please fill in this form.
