Located 25 miles north of Seattle, the City of Everett is evolving from its industrial past into a vibrant urban center with a strong focus on quality-of-life amenities — including the arts. As part of this process, the City of Everett and the Arts Council of Snohomish County invited Artspace to develop a mixed-use project in downtown Everett.
Artspace Everett Lofts occupies a new four-story building that provides 40 units of affordable live/work housing for artists on the upper three floors plus a home for the Arts Council — now renamed the Schack Art Center — on the ground floor. The Schack features the most advanced glass works facility of its kind on the west coast, with glassblowing, flame working and sandblasting, as well as gallery, a gift shop, and two studio spaces that can be rented for special events, meetings and celebrations.
As part of a larger economic development initiative designed to revitalize downtown Everett while stabilizing its creative community, Artspace Everett Lofts is also Artspace’s — and Everett’s — first project to earn a coveted LEED “silver” rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
