Family Space in a Thriving Arts Community

901 18 1/2 Ave N.E. Minneapolis, MN, 55418

Overview

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.
