Milbrook live/work unit

Affordable Artist Live/Work Units


You are here

Artist Housing Certification is closed and will only reopen if new units become available.

In Spring 2016, the new Millbrook development leased five affordable artist live/work units for Somerville artists or artists who demonstrated their work/activity in Somerville.  Rents were either $787 or $1,058 for one-bedroom units and $934 or $1,262 for the two-bedroom unit (the rent will be dependent upon applicant income; their AMI level.)   See images of the floor plans units here.

Somerville’s current zoning includes provisions that certain new development require “artist use.”   If a new development creates “Artist Live/Work”  or “Artist Studio Space” a certification process will accompany those units.   This policy will ensure that development built for artists will retain artists.
