Today, our staff took a look at First Floor North to discuss renovations all while gathering a better understanding of the layout. The current tenants are still in the process of moving out, so there is a bit of cleanup left to do. Eventually we’ll have the chance to go in and start tearing things apart, laying out studio space, removing walls, and more. Yes. It will be a lot of work, but what most people don’t realize is the amount of time and dedication that has already gone into making Lowe Mill what it is today. Most of what we have wasn’t here when we took over the facility. Our executive director, with the help of our hardworking staff, designed floor plans for the interior and exterior of the building. Together, they had an idea and spent endless hours making that vision a reality. And that’s exactly what we plan to do with First Floor North. What we see when we look at this empty floor is an opportunity to grow and expand, the freedom to completely transform a once used area into a space that works for us, our tenants, and patrons. This is such an exciting time for us as we continue to grow here at Lowe Mill.
At this point, we are still searching for more artists and makers to help take over the space. Aspiring tenants have the chance to help us redesign the space. If you’re interested in touring the space, contact our executive director Marcia Freeland for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
