REAL ART WAYS SELECTS BBE FOR EXPANSION
BBE’s Preconstruction team is working on plans and budgets for a $14.7-million expansion to Real Art Ways, an artists collaborative in the City of Hartford's Parkville neighborhood. The expansion plans include a dedicated space for the performing arts , a new café and more space for educational programs. The historic 1917 building is a generator of creative ideas and provides cultural and entertainment spaces.
The phased project will also include renovations to the 145,000 square-foot building, but the organization plans to keep and foster its tenant base of artists with studio space and other small businesses involved in creative endeavors.
