Developer, North Loop artists, cut relocation deal


A North Loop artist collective known as the Studios @ 700 has reached an agreement with condo developer Chuck Leer over relocation plans.

The artists have occupied space in an old warehouse at 700 Washington Ave. N. since 1982. Leer has purchased the building with plans to convert it into 143 high-end condos called the Tower Lofts.

The collective has occupied 30 studios on the warehouse's third and fourth floor. Some of the artists moved out Memorial Day weekend. The rest are scheduled to find new spaces by Aug. 1, Leer said.
