Finer details:

Studios are available for longterm lease. CheMLAB is not zoned for residential, but has 24 hour access, a raw kitchen area and eventually a shower, and besides, plenty of people are sleeping on the street around here as it is. Artists interested in this project should be hardcore, serious and able to deal with the surrounding environment. This is not Scottsdale. This is not Mill Avenue. This is Phoenix Culture at its finest — crackheads, the homeless, police, artists and Arizona’s mentally ill — an ideal cultural mix, all in one convenient location.

CheMLAB is 5 blocks from the ICEHOUSE and 1 block from autoMATIC (our other studio complex). The building is also a few blocks from the CASS homeless shelter and across the street from St. Vincent de Paul dining hall (FREE FOOD!). Our plan is to slowly seed artists into this area and transform the neighborhood into an arts/music district. The building is within the ART DeTOUR boundaries. Artists interested in Art Detour can list themselves separately or as a group.

AutoMATIC is our other project just south of CheMLAB which currently houses a few sculptors. It is a large project - about 35,000 s.f. of buildings on 100,000 s.f. of land. We are also looking for artists for this facility, primarily sculptors and artists that need large industrial space. We also have some smaller studios and rehearsal rooms available in this facility, as well as fully built out areas.

Please contact us with any questions.
