In 2012, Artspace was invited to Mesa by the community to consult and investigate the feasibility of an Artspace live/work project; this included five community meetings and a six-month long market survey. Artspace was well received by city staff, councilmembers, two mayors, community leaders and neighbors.

Artspace interviewed more than 660 artists in Mesa and the Valley, and received great interest and support for affordable rental housing with a preference for artists in the Mesa downtown community. After unveiling the survey results, Artspace began working closely with the City of Mesa, City of Mesa Arts & Culture Department, the Neighborhood Economic Development Corporation (NEDCO) and the community as a whole.

Mesa Artspace Lofts will include up to 50 units of artist live/work housing in downtown Mesa at 155 South Hibbert. 

The facility will provide artists’ housing, performance/exhibition space, educational space, and creative business space – all in close proximity to public transportation and within an easy 25-minute drive from downtown Phoenix.

Mesa Artspace Lofts will not only provide high-quality housing for families, but a significant economic development impact on the Mesa and Valley communities.

Estimated Project Cost
$13.5 million
