New spaces for artists to live is coming in the Station North area. Construction officially started on a second City Arts building with a groundbreaking on Tuesday.
The first City Arts opened in 2010 with the goal of providing affordable housing for artists. The apartments have a long waiting list, leading nonprofit developers Jubilee Baltimore,TRF Development Partners-Baltimore and Homes for America to endeavor to build more apartments at 1700 Barclay St. in Greenmount West. City Arts 2 is about two blocks away from the first building.
The 60-unit project will cost nearly $16 million. Jubilee received $12.4 million in Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
Along with its proximity to the Station North, the building is just a few blocks from Open Works, another under-construction space that will offer studios for makers, artists and other creators.
