Academy Lofts, 56 Second Street
Academy Lofts is the adaptive reuse of the derelict St. Joseph’s Academy into 22 affordable live/work loft-style apartments for artists over a 15,000 square foot incubator for creative enterprises. The on-site studio space is multi-purposed as a business incubator for the arts and an arts-oriented community center open to local residents. High-design/high-concept features of the Academy Lofts include space for work studios, rehearsal suites, performance space, a digital media center and retail space and offices for the professional artist community. The $10M project embodies the Arbor Hill Neighborhood Plan of 2003 by addressing all four areas of focus: Housing, Economic Development, Arts/Culture/Heritage and Quality of Life.
