A new apartment complex scheduled to open next spring in Brentwood is getting serious about art.
“The more time I spend in the area, meeting people, experiencing the art and taking advantage of the amazing retail, restaurants and studios, the more I want to help promote this special place,” said Peter Siegel, CEO of Landex Development, in a statement.
The building will have 147 apartments, 6,322 square feet of retail space and 3,000 square feet of artist studios and gallery space called Portico. Developers also plan for regular artist talks and curated displays of public art.
Other plans include two “sculptural bus stops” in front of the development and social media campaigns to promote the area.
Landex also recently finished taping three days of interviews with area residents for a video showcasing the Route 1 arts community called “Experience the Art of Living.”
“Our goal is to support the arts community and celebrate what makes the neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods special,” added Siegel.
