Beech St. Factory Project
As you know, ArtFusion will be moving to a new home at the Beech Street Factory, formerly Fecera’s Warehouse, on Beech and Evans streets. The project, designed by Barton Partners, a local award-winning architectural and planning firm specializing in sustainable urban planning, will provide ArtFusion with 4,000 square feet of space, located on the ground floor. The new location will be ADA compliant, provide ample room for multiple classrooms, and establish a permanent and unique space to host a variety of arts and cultural events. We believe that the Beech Street Factory will be an ideal space for ArtFusion, allowing us to expand our educational efforts, and will better suit the needs of the entire community by serving as a neighborhood anchor. Check out the plans here.
ArtFusion is partnering with Genesis Housing and with Housing Visions, a non-profit organization with 20 years of experience in sustainably restoring historic buildings. In addition to the commercial space provided for ArtFusion, the project includes over 43 one, two and three bedroom apartments. Housing Visions will market these apartments to artists throughout the tri-county area. We believe the project will attract more local artists to our community, furthering our vision of Pottstown as an arts and culture destination. Housing Visions will provide memberships to ArtFusion to other residents of the Beech Street Project and provide scholarships for classes to members of the community.
