Construction has begun on a cross-braced, utilitarian artists’ space in the heart of Bushwick at 13 Grattan Street. According to the Wall Street Journal, after the great success of the adjacent artist production studio space The BogArt in 2005, contemporary patrons of the arts Marianne and Ted Hovivian decided to meet the growing demand for affordable work and exhibition space with a new 40,000-square-foot building. The mixed-use development will be divided between 23,000 square feet of artist lofts on the second through fourth floors and an additional 8,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.

The development faces the popular Pine Box Rock Shop bar founded by Heather and Jeff Rush

The flexibly designed, four-story building will provide anywhere between three and 30 studios, ranging from 400 to 960 square feet. Rent including utilities for these naturally lit, 12-foot-high ceiling artist lofts could range from $35 to $45 a square foot.

Gene Kaufman is listed as the architect on record and intends to combine “the spirit of 19th-century European ateliers with the sophistication of 21st-century technology, materials and amenities.” Said amenities will include toilets, slop sinks, upper-floor unit terraces, and a roof deck with views of Manhattan. Completion is scheduled for September 2016.
