Here’s another ‘artists studio’ project just completed in the Brewery Creek area of Mount Pleasant. We suspect that these days that very few artists end up in these buildings, despite the units being designed to accommodate their use by artists. The scheme is designed by SHIFT Architecture for Greci Developments, based on the north shore.
It’s six storeys with 55 units, most of them with an artists studio, and its on the east side of East 2nd Ave at Scotia Street. It wasn’t a rezoning, and as there were no significant design issues it received a Development Permit quite fast – three years ago. This is the sales render, which showed a few minor changes to the initial design. The ‘as built’ is slightly different again. Although it was initially offered for sale, the building is now being offered as rental, although there’s nothing preventing the developer from selling the units in future.
