Artspace Patchogue Lofts
Earlier this week , a grand opening was held for local officials, residents of Artspace and the general public.
The completion of this much-anticipated $18 million dollar development is key to the revitalization of downtown Patchogue and an essential part of Patchogue's transition to a "Village of the Arts" according to Mayor Paul Pontieri.
The five-story, 60,000 square foot project includes 45 loft-style apartments and 2 retail spaces on the ground level where people engaged in the arts can live and work. This residence was intended to compliment Main Street which is already filled with creative businesses.
The lucky occupants were picked by lottery last October. They were also required to pass before an artist selection committee who stressed a cooperative environment. The artists would be required to display their work in communal areas, interact with other residents and open their doors for art exhibits.
The 1,2 or 3 bedroom apartments boast 9 ft. ceilings, exposed ductwork and pipes, floor to ceiling windows, track lighting and concrete floors.
Artspace is currently involved in half a dozen projects throughout the nation. Learn more at their website:
