Lowe Mill First Floor

Last December, we expanded our already huge facility with the addition of our north wing. It was such an exciting time for all of us as we worked so hard to make the expansion a success. Those spaces filled up fast. Now, almost a year later, the second floor of the north building is covered with artists and makers of all kinds. From a gourmet popsicle shop to a small-batch whiskey distillery to painters and engravers and a stunning gallery space, our north floor is home to all sorts of creations.

And now we’re about to add a little something more to the mix. Okay, so maybe it’s not that little.

In March 2016, the north building’s first floor becomes available, and we are in search of a maker to fill that space. 36,000 square feet of space, to be exact. Trust me. You didn’t read that wrong. Yes, that is a TON OF SPACE! We’re searching for the ideal candidate to take over the floor. A maker with the perfect idea that will add to our already vibrant community of more than 200 working artists and entrepreneurs.

But not only are we home to hundreds of artists and makers. Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment is the largest privately owned arts facility in America, and we’re always looking for ways to expand. We’re always on the move for new ideas, events, entertainment, artists, makers, and creations–be they wild, weird, or simply comforting–to add to our thriving creative community. And now, we’re looking for a maker to come make their mark.

North Building First Floor PlanNow a few details. The first floor of the north building includes 36,000 square feet of space at $15.00 per square foot, and features 14-foot floor to ceiling height and 9-foot windows facing north and south that produce natural light with updated
concrete floors.

Contact Lowe Mill Executive Director Marcia Freeland to apply.

Say you have 36,000 square feet of workable space. How would you use it? What would you create? Let us know. We have the space, you bring the plan.
