Artspace Silver Spring Arts Campus

Creating a Thriving Arts and Cultural Hub

801 Sligo Avenue Silver Spring, MD, 20910

Overview

Located just north of the heart of Washington, DC, Silver Spring has become a major business hub and hosts several multi-cultural festivals as well as a growing arts community.

Artspace, with the Division of Housing – Montgomery County, will develop the former Third District Police Station and adjacent land located on Sligo Avenue into an arts center anchored by affordable live/work housing. The former station, built in 1962, was Silver Spring’s first permanent police station and will be converted into working artist studios and creative spaces, providing opportunities for the area’s creative artists and organizations eager to find affordable workspace within the Capital Region.

In addition to the redevelopment of the existing building into artist studios, the proposed development also includes construction of 68 affordable live/work units and 11 townhouses. 

Investing in affordable housing and artistic centers on Sligo Avenue will create a strong anchor and transitional connection between the business district and residential neighborhoods. The site plan responds to the sensitivity of the neighborhood while providing vital opportunities for job growth, affordable rental and for-sale housing, and support for the local creative economy.
