A new mixed use building with apartments, artist work space and retail space is being developed along U.S. Route 1 just outside of Washington, DC, to be called “Studio 3807″. The surrounding construction hoarding fence was wrapped with large photos of the artists that make up the Gateway Arts District. Executive Director of Joe’s Movement Emporium, Brooke Kidd, says “the Gateway Arts District is our artists; they are our best asset.”
