Best municipal investment in artists: PINELLAS PARK’S LIVE/WORK PROGRAM

Best municipal investment in artists

Providing affordable housing and studio space for artists is crucial in keeping the arts alive, which is exactly what Pinellas has on its priority list. In an attempt to encourage further development in this emerging Creative District, the modern shipping container architecture at the unit at 5705 Park Boulevard provides gallery and studio space on the first floor, with comfortable living arrangements on the second. With an outdoor patio and community gARTen, Pinellas Park Live/Work is that bit of hope for a better, enriched community. —Caitlin Albritton
