C4 Atlanta Expands Space to Offer More Studio Space for Artists In South Downtown

DATE: Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Atlanta, GA – C4 Atlanta announces a space expansion to provide more studio opportunities to Atlanta-based, artists. C4 has signed a lease to become a tenant at 132 Mitchell Street.

After being at the M Rich Building since 2010, the nonprofit arts organization will be doubling its current space capacity. In addition to artist studios, the new arts center will offer offices for small arts businesses and nonprofits. The space will have two common area rooms for meetings or workshops. C4 Atlanta has a target move-in date of May 1, 2019. The space has a new HVAC system, elevator, and buildout is to begin soon for a fully ADA compliant bathroom. The new arts space will also be renovated with new floors and paint before move-in.

The expansion is part of an effort to keep arts workers from being fully displaced from South Downtown. With new development coming, real estate prices are expected to escalate. This trend is happening in Atlanta and other major cities across the United States.

As part of a program expansion tied to the space, C4 Atlanta will be receiving a $10,000 grant from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation to pilot a new incubation program that combines professional development and coaching with studio space for artists. C4 Atlanta works with a diverse array of artists that includes visual artists, performing artists, film makers, musicians, and curators.

“We are excited about this move. Our team has been exploring this possibility for several years,” said Jessyca Holland, co-founder and Executive Director. “At one point, we thought we may have to leave downtown but we found a space that fits our vision for the next several years, and we get to stay in the heart of the city of Atlanta.”

132 Mitchell is owned by Winter Properties. The building is located near public transit. C4 Atlanta will rent out the top floor. “We are excited to be a part of C4 Atlanta's next growth phase. The arts are important to the fabric of South Downtown,” stated Stacy Crane of Winter Properties.

The organization is now seeking artists who are in need of a studio or small art businesses that need office space. For more information, please email actionteam@c4atlanta.org.
