Small private studio with sink

Our gorgeous, light-filled new third floor has just one space still available. All spaces are work-only, 24/7 access; rents include utilities, wifi, and use of shared kitchenette, bathroom, lobby, and display spaces.

Studio 311

A former kitchen, this space has a sink and loads of cupboards. The current kitchen sink could be replaced by something more industrial or specific to your medium. There is no window to the outside, but light filters in through the glass door, and there are lovely, spacious common areas in which to take breaks, including one with a gorgeous skylight. There is working HVAC, and the potential to add more robust ventilation if required. 175 square feet; $400/month

The most adorable studio ever

UPDATE: Adorable goes fast. This space is rented.  To be informed of future openings, please join our mailing list (form on sidebar).

. . . is available September 1!

170-square foot L-shape, with variable ceiling height, operable south-facing windows, a transom for ventilation, fir floors, a combination of track and can lighting, and loads of charm. It was carved out of our lobby shortly after Good Arts bought the building, and it has its own separate entrance and a large window facing the stairwell, which gives it possibilities as a retail space as well as a workspace. It could be great for a jeweler or designer who works small, but the big wall is great for display or for working vertically. $425 monthly rent is inclusive of utilities. Contact Jane to find out more and take a tour.

Windows look onto Cherry Street. Yes, they open.

This is the view as you walk into the space. The tall pitched ceiling above you is the bottom of the staircase.

Cute built-in bench seat looks out the windows. (Could also be made into a desk or work table.)

View of Monkey Puzzle and other fab lobby art. Opportunities to add your own.

Studio for rent

In addition to 311, available now, we also have a sweet space on the second floor coming up for rent September 1st.  Suite 204 consists of two adjoining rooms, which could be a great fit for someone who wants to separate the business from the messier, making aspects of their work. Or for two artists who want to share. It’s spacious (400 square feet total) with lovely windows and a utility sink right outside the door. The ceilings are about 12-1/2 feet tall and the floors are nice, worn, unpainted fir (which you are allowed to get paint on). Rent is $810 per month and includes utilities, NNN, wifi, and use of fabulous common areas.

For more info or to schedule an appointment, contact Jane.

Studio 311: Your new workshop, print shop, photo studio, maker space . . .

Our gorgeous, light-filled third floor swell new Biscaynitos settling in this summer, and we have just one space still available.

Oh, and membership in the single coolest artists’ community in the city.

Studio 311: 910 Sq Ft; $1950/mo. includes utilities

This large space would make a FABULOUS print studio, shared maker space, or classroom. It includes an adjacent kitchen area, which has plumbing & storage, and could be converted to a darkroom, wetroom, or a separate space. A huge skylight floods one corner with light all day long.  Plenty of power, including a 220v outlet.

To make an appointment or ask a question, contact jane@janerichlovsky.com

Two studios for rent: available April 1

Just one studio in the new third floor expansion hasn’t yet been snatched up, and it’s a beauty. Studio 12 is 635 square feet,  in three sections, and will be available to rent April 1. The largest area is oblong and its entire ceiling consists of a stunning skylight that looks up to the gorgeous Hogue building next door and floods the space with light. There is a small adjacent nook with lots of power, including a 220 outlet; and an additional separate room with a door that has easy access to plumbing and could accommodate a sink. Rent is $1400, includes utilities.

It’s really tall.

Hurry! This guy is seriously considering it.

Also available April 1 is a lovely corner space with a west-facing window on the second floor. It’s 532 square feet, with nice wood floors and an exposed brick wall. Great for photography, but lots of other things as well. Rent is $1075, inclusive of utilities.

Studio 210

Utilities and wifi included. One-year lease. Work-only, no live-in.
OK to share w/landlord approval.

To see these studios, along with our gorgeous and practical common areas, please contact the proprietrix.

’57 Biscayne World Takeover (or, “Studios for Rent”)

’57 Biscayne is expanding this spring, taking over the third floor of the Good Arts Building and doubling in size for a total of 26 studios. We are looking for like-minded fine artists, craftspeople, and related creative entrepreneurs to round out our community and help move us into the future.

’57 Biscayne began in 2011 with some artists seeing an opportunity where others saw disaster. We built something new and unique out of “found materials”: the dispersal of one community, and our displacement benefits from a state highway project. Six years later, proprietrix Jane Richlovsky is a part-owner of the building, we’re surrounded by additional creative business owners, and we are re-inventing the role of artists in a changing cityscape: no longer victims but creative cultural mavens who share in its prosperity.

We are looking not just for tenants but for partners and co-creators of this vision. These spaces are still available:

#1: 280 Sq Ft w/window $700/mo.

#8: 195 Sq Ft w/ window $525/mo.

#9: 185 Sq Ft w/ window $500/mo.

#11: 910 Sq Ft w/giant skylight, kitchen $2000 GREAT SHARE, PRINT, or MAKER SPACE

#12: 635 Sq Ft w/giant-er skylight $1400/mo. Includes a separate room w/door and access to plumbing for dark room, etc.

AVAILABLE APRIL 1ST ALL RENTS INCLUDE UTILITIES. ONE-YEAR LEASE PREFERRED. WORK-ONLY, NO LIVE-IN.

Shared common areas include a wide gallery hallway with skylight; break/waiting area; another room with utility sink, kitchen sink, fridge & microwave; and a large, clean restroom. There is also a lobby and wide stairwell that has some big art in it and could get more (see below). Later this spring, a parklet will be installed in front of the building for some shared outdoor space and room for additional art projects.

We put on two coordinated 1st-Thursday open houses per year, with curated gallery shows, a ready-made following, shared publicity, and participation of other arts & retail spaces in the building. There are lots of opportunities to co-curate and organize these, and to use the common gallery and lobby spaces for your own projects at other times. Collaboration is our middle name.

Photographs of individual spaces will be available shortly. The windows are covered at the moment to protect them from drywall dust, so they don’t photograph well in their present state. Please contact Jane to set up an appointment to see them in person.

Tech Firm Displaced for Artists’ Studios in Pioneer Square

It’s not a joke!

’57 Biscayne is expanding to the third floor of the Good Arts Building, clearing out some museum-quality nineties office decor and replacing it with a dozen more work spaces for artists and related creative endeavors in early 2018.

Watch this space for details, including floor plans, prices, and availability or better yet, join our mailing list to be the first to hear all about it.

Artists have already claimed these former corporate offices: the resident local life drawing group introduces office nudity and other debauchery.

Ever dreamed of making art in a cubicle? Neither did we, but you could.

The Good Arts Arcade: Creative retail & maker spaces for lease

On the rare occasions a space opens up at ’57 Biscayne, it is filled immediately, and we are always forced to turn away potentially awesome creative neighbors. Such is the demand for the diminishing supply of artists’ work space in Seattle (and most major U.S. cities). When Good Arts LLC formed to buy our building in 2015, it did so with the express purpose of creating new art space wherever and whenever it could. One space was built out of the second floor lobby in 2016, and now four additional spaces are being created in the downstairs storefront at 108 Cherry, which has been largely vacant (and playing host to pop-up art and music events) the past two years.

The Good Arts Arcade will consist of two retail spaces and two artists’ studios which share a street entrance and open onto a shared central gallery.

The Arcade will provide affordable space for the making, exhibiting, and selling of a range of creative goods, and foster a supportive community for the makers and sellers.

Flanked by the new Cherry Street Coffee House to the west, and the entrance to ’57 Biscayne Artist Studios to the east, Good Arts Arcade is perfectly situated for creative collaboration, fabulous combined events, and synergistic marketing opportunities. The location is well situated for foot traffic from the nearby light rail station, ferries, Pioneer Square park, and a planned streetcar stop at First and Cherry. A parklet will be installed on the street in front of the entrance, providing additional outdoor community space and a potential pop-up show venue.

We are seeking creative community builders–artists, gallerists, and human-scale retailers–to work, grow, and collaborate in the Arcade. Floorplan and prices here: GoodArtsArcade

Studio for rent: Available July 1

UPDATE: The studio has been rented. If you are interested in hearing about openings in the future, please sign up for our mailing list.

Available July 1: A  220-square-foot interior space, with 14-foot ceilings, two long clean white walls, and one lovely exposed brick wall (which you can and may hang stuff on). It also has a cute dutch door entrance and is located mere steps from a utility sink.

$370 a month includes utilities, as well as shared amenities like wifi, a kitchenette, a hallway gallery, a comfy and professional waiting area for your big-time visitors, two utility sinks, and nice clean restrooms.

We are looking for a new community member to create alongside other artists, craftspeople, and art-related enterprises in a building that is dedicated to supporting creative enterprises. We organize biannual (at least) shows and open studios, and we share information, expertise, marketing tips, and fun.

If this sounds right for you, please contact Jane to see the space.

Welcome to our newest Biscaynito!

We’re super-excited to announce that we’ve filled the cute new nook of a studio with the lovely Celeste Cooning, cutter of intricate patterns in Tyvek and much more.  She will be settled in by our next open house, December 1st in time to celebrate the holidays. Welcome to the community, Celeste, and we look forward to future co-inspirations and collaborations!

That the studio had a line-up of fabulous and personable artists ready to take it before it was even built speaks to the utter dearth of affordable cultural space in this town. Good Arts is looking forward to building some additional work & gallery spaces on the street level of the building in the upcoming months. Please join our mailing list to keep abreast of developments. While we’re at it, let’s hear a shout-out to those who are working to create affordable space elsewhere in the city: Sam Farraizaino at Equinox, Timothy Firth at Common Area Maintenance,  and many others, most of them artists themselves.
