Listen to this WAMU Metro Connections story on the future of the 52 O Street Studios:
“This past summer, Metro Connection visited 52 O Street: a Northwest D.C. building that’s long been committed to providing affordable housing and work space for Washington’s artists. Now these artists are fearing some major changes, as the landlord considers transforming part of the building in to a hostel. The development will leave some artists without a place to work… or a place to live… and many artists worry the changes won’t end there. Rebecca Sheir heads back to 52 O Street to find out more.”
Listen to comments from existing tenants at 52 O Street Studios and from property owner Marty Youmans.
