Artist live work studio sublet (Chinatown)

Semi furnished artist live work space available for sublet November - July (with potential for longer term).

The place is approx 2500 sq ft and it’s an original live work space - has been since the 70’s. Spaces like this doesn’t exist in Vancouver anymore.

I am in the process of dismantling my studio and some items will remain in the space as part of the sublet.

I do have the lease till next August and I would renegotiate as I have that relationship with the Chinese association who own the building.

It is a ground floor space that has a mezzanine that Is the main living space - kitchen and bathroom downstairs.

It is a true artist space and original.
Very bohemian. Like NYC loft in the 70’s - just imagine that.

It could be shared with someone to but it is a quiet building and there are 2 other professionals who live in the other spaces in the building.

My neighbour upstairs lived in my place for 20 years before me.

I will be in the UK for a few years - if not indefinitely. So you don’t have to worry about me coming back anytime immediately.

That being said, I do need to store work in the storage room and maintain my CDN address for professional reasons so mail may come from time to time for me.

The rent is $2300 plus hydro, gas and wifi. The rent will increase August 2020- not sure what this will be until July 2020.

The association treats me like family and you can run a business privately but it is more zoned as residential. Utilities are residential rate. Hydro (approx 65 per month) Gas (approx 63 per month). The heat is gas and I have space heaters and fans I would leave behind. The bathroom has an old claw foot tub that you can literally sit cross legged in. It has a detachable shower head but no stand up shower. It’s kinda old school but I love taking baths :) You will need to put utilities in your name.

A deposit of $950 plus one months rent will be required upon agreement for the first months rent. You may be able to move in early as I will be leaving before end of month around October 23rd.

Pet friendly. Studio is suitable for sewing, painting, etc. Space is not suitable for musicians, ceramicists, woodworkers or anyone using heavy duty industrial equipment. It can support the power and this is an old building where sounds travels. Sorry.

No parking or laundry on site.
