Artspace Jackson Flats, a 35-unit affordable rental housing project for artists and their families, is a four-story, new construction development by Artspace, in partnership with Northeast Community Development Corporation.
Designed with an emphasis on families, Artspace Jackson Flats features more two- and three-bedroom units than traditional developments. The $10 million project also contains community space tenants use for exhibits, performances and other events.
With its location in the vibrant Northeast Arts Corridor, home to galleries, artist studios and the annual Art-A-Whirl — the largest open studio event in the country — Artspace Jackson Flats is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

“I stalked Artspace for like a year to get in — I can work and live in the same place, so I don’t have to pay two rents. And it’s very affordable. It’s a dream come true.” –Rachel Vitko, Artist
Jac Flats is located on corner of NE 18½ Ave and NE Jackson St., one block west of Central Avenue in the heart of the vibrant NE Minneapolis arts district.
A new four-story, 69,000-square-foot structure, Jackson Flats was built on what was a vacant site at the corner of 18th Avenue and Jackson Street. The site is one block west of Central Avenue, Northeast Minneapolis’ most important commercial and transit corridor, in a neighborhood with several large non-residential factories and warehouses that have filled up with artist studios and creative businesses over the last two decades.
Units include spacious floorplans, large windows, an in-unit washer/dryer, and a dishwasher. The property is a family friendly building with off-street parking, multiple exhibition spaces, and green courtyard and in walking distance to cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores. The property is also located on a major bus line.
