The construction is well underway over at the Brookland Artspace Lofts, and those interested in taking a look at the in-progress project now have the opportunity to do so.

UrbanTurf has learned that four hardhat tours will be offered of the project over the next two weeks:

  • Monday, February 7th at 12:15pm
  • Saturday, February 12th at 10am
  • Saturday, February 12th at 10:45am
  • Saturday, February 12th at 11:30am

To RSVP for a tour, send an email to housing@culturaldc.org.

Once complete, the lofts will have 41 affordable apartments all reserved for artists. The complex will include a dance and music rehearsal studio with some space reserved for Dance Place, a modern dance arts and education organization. Hickok Cole Architects designed the new building, which will include a green roof and a mosaic tile installation by community volunteers. The Lofts will have open interiors, performance areas, underground parking and wide hallways with oversized elevators so that large art can be transported easily within the building.

"We're hoping to have people moved in by June," Heidi Kurtze of Artspace Projects told UrbanTurf. "There will be a couple information sessions in March and the application process starts in April."

The majority of the units will be available to artists in households earning less than 60 percent of the area median income (AMI). The charts below, provided courtesy of Artspace, put some real meaning to that AMI percentage:
