Artist Housing Opportunities


The Cultural Development Corporation (CuDC) has partnered with The Cohen Companies and Union Place Phase I, LLC to develop affordable live/work housing units for artists and their families. Applications are available now for artist housing/work space in the new Loree Grand building at 250 K St NE, in the NoMa area of Washington, DC.

Open to Artist Households, including administrators and educators. Move-in available immediately after eligibility review.

Live/work artist housing are apartments that are primarily designed for living, with studio/work space as an ancillary use. Employees and walk-in trade are regulated by your Home Occupation Permit.

The building, with move-in beginning June 2010, will feature studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom with den units. Units range from 596 to 1362 square feet. Additionally, nine of the units, located on 3rd Street, feature entryways with direct street access as either walk-down or walk-up units. Units are priced to be affordable to households earning a maximum of 80% of Area Median Income.

Area Median Income (AMI) is the annual median income level for the Washington, DC metropolitan area, as calculated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The 2009 AMI for the metro area is $102,000 for a four person household.

The Process
CuDC will lease units on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. Interested households may submit applications on a rolling basis. Applications may be mailed or hand-delivered to 916 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20001. CuDC’s offices are open Monday – Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
