The Mt. Baker Lofts, Artspace’s third project in Seattle, will also be a Transit Oriented Development. Located adjacent to a station on Seattle’s Central Link light rail line, this $18 million project will have three levels containing 57 units of affordable live/work space for artists and their families. The ground floor will include a community room and a dozen commercial spaces for nonprofits, creative enterprises and related businesses.
One of the goals of the project is to jumpstart the transformation of the Mt. Baker neighborhood from a car-oriented environment — Rainier Avenue is now a busy four-lane thoroughfare — into an “urban village” whose residents choose walking, biking or riding mass transit over cars. The project will have bicycle storage and a reserved car-share parking space, but no parking garage. Artspace envisions a building with urban agriculture, a neighborhood housing organization, a bike shop and arts programming for all ages. The commercial spaces will offer an opportunity to engage with creative individuals and organizations representing the neighborhood’s diversity.
More than a thousand artists are on waiting lists for housing at Artspace’s first two Seattle projects, the Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts and Artspace Hiawatha Lofts. The Mt. Baker project will help address that need.
