One of our projects was recently featured on a WBUR podcast that highlighted a special haven for Boston artists: Midway Lofts! For the past 25 years, many artists have been living and working in the former Fort Point Channel warehouse area which is currently the location of much development activity centered on the Seaport District and Convention Center. The 24-38 Midway Street Artists Building provides 100 units of artist live/work space. The project is a result of joint venture of the Fort Point Cultural Coalition and Keen Development Corporation.
Finegold Alexander, in association with Spalding Tougais Architects, Inc., designed the adaptive reuse of the three warehouse buildings to accommodate live/work artist loft space on floors two to six. The building also includes a 200-seat theatre, gallery, cafe, arts-related office space and public lobby on the first floor.
To read more about the valiant effort Boston artists put into owning this space as their own, head over to the WBUR article.
