Artspace Trinidad Lofts Main Street Available for Rent

May 25, 2020 – This is an exciting update to write. After years of hard work by countless individuals, organizations, and partnerships, our first 13 units of artist live/work housing for the Space to Create Initiative are ready to lease!

Even with the challenge of working through the COVID crisis we have all been facing, Gibbs Construction is wrapping up the finishing touches on the Main Street site in Historic Downtown Trinidad, and we are preparing to rent these units. Attached to this email you will find some sample floor plans for these units, as well as some pictures of what the units will look like: note that each of these units are unique, but the general feel and design is similar across the building. The units are spacious, with oversized windows providing TONS of natural light, durable floors, countertops, and surfaces; which make the apartments perfect for those looking to advance their creative pursuits in a live/work community.

Artspace is a non-profit organization that uses the tools of real estate development to create affordable places where artists can live and work. We consistently develop these projects in ways that support stable, healthy communities anchored in existing assets. Because Artspace owns each of the projects it develops, we are able to ensure that they remain affordable and accessible to artists. With more than 50 projects developed over the last four decades, Artspace has supported artist-led community transformation, representing a nearly $750 million investment in America’s arts infrastructure. While embracing the value the arts bring to individual lives, Artspace has championed the once-radical idea that artists living with financial hardship and chronically underfunded arts organizations can leverage fundamental social change. With headquarters in Minneapolis and offices in New York and Washington D.C., Artspace is America’s leading developer of arts facilities and has served as a consultant to hundreds of communities and arts organizations nationwide.
