Looking for Warehouse-style arts space in DC? Cultural Development Corporation (CuDC) is working with a developer to lease an 8,300 square foot, second floor warehouse space in NW. The space is great for a variety of artist uses and includes 12’ ceilings, windows on three walls and a freight elevator. Owner will provide some improvements but build out is required. Located only 5 blocks north of the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro Station, this space would be ideal for but is not limited to artist studio space, gallery space, costume/prop shop, rehearsal and administrative space. Asking price: $10/sf NNN (tenant pays all utilities, maintenance and taxes). For more information and to schedule a meeting with the developer, please contact Ilana Branda at

because of this post i was also notified that i probably didnt have access to the entire MLS. FSBO's notwithstanding, apparently there are more affordable units available. good news by my take.
