Artspace Mt. Baker Lofts

Jump-starting an Urban Village

2915 Rainier Avenue S. Seattle, WA, 98144

Overview

Artspace Mt. Baker Lofts, a mixed-use arts facility consisting of 57 artist live/work units paired with retail/commercial space, is Artspace’s third project in Seattle. More than 1,000 artists were on waiting lists for Artspace’s Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts and Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, and Mt. Baker has helped meet the need. This Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is located adjacent to the Mt. Baker Light Rail Station, addressing a goal to jump-start the Mt. Baker neighborhood into an “urban village” where residents can easily walk, bike, or ride mass transit.
