Soon we will see the ugly boards coming off of the boarded-up windows throughout at least part of the site. We have decided to refurbish the old windows instead of buying new, so we can stick with the original industrial look as much as possible. One test window has been completed and it looks fabulous - much nicer than anything we could have purchased new (in our humble opinions)! You would be amazed at how many windows there are! Some of the boards have been removed and the resulting light inside the building is amazing! Cleanup has begun on the large space which will become the Craftsmen's Marketplace, surrounded by many small artist/artisan units.

More spaces have been reserved, work has started on creating one of three studio spaces in a prime location on the site, and due to the popularity of the smaller spaces, plans are underway to create 4 more small office/studios, each with a fabulous view. We are getting closer to being able to release the names of 2 larger potential tenants that we have been working with over the past several months, negotiations are continuing with others, and new enquiries are being fielded all the time. Don't hesitate to come and see us now if you're interested in being part of the Artisans' Village, especially if you will need a small space.

We're already almost half-way through June and time is flying! Stay tuned...
