The former Perkins building, next to the Shirt Factory, is in the process of being renovated. The first space completed will be a meeting room/classroom space that, in the Spring of 2016, will be available to rent by the hour.
Love this place! Can I take pictures/Shoot a video here?
We understand the feeling, we love this place too!
You’re welcome to walk through and grab a casual picture as you go.
When taking pictures of tenants or their work, please ask first.
If you’re interested in taking more formal pictures here or filming a video, please send us a message with details about what you’re planning and where on the property you would like to work. We will try our best to work with you, but preference is given to individuals with studios here and for the sake of safety certain areas may not be used. Please do not make plans to use our property without contacting us at least two weeks prior and receiving written permission to do so.
Is the building handicap accessible/stroller friendly?
The entire first floor of the building is handicap accessible/stroller friendly. Park in the loading dock parking lot (reached from Lawrence Street), there is a handicap ramp at this entrance. There are two handicap accessible restrooms on this floor and a baby change table is available in the restroom across from Dickinson’s Delights.
There is a freight elevator at the building, it is not intended for use as passenger elevator. We hope to put in a passenger elevator soon.

When is the building open?
The building is open daily from 8am-5pm. You are welcome to walk around and view displays in the halls during this time, please be aware though that not all studios will be open.
For the best experience we recommend visiting Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 12pm and 5pm.

I love it here! How can I get my own studio?
Applications are accepted continuously. You never know what may happen, even if we don’t have something right now, get us your application to find out about opening before anyone else!
Find the application here.
Studios range in size from 150 sq ft to 1,600 sq ft, it helps us to know how much space you need!
Please be aware, this is an old building, soundproofing is very minimal. Due to this we generally do not rent to musicians and only offer studio for fitness classes on the Garden Level.
