BOULDER - Interactive artist Jen Lewin plans to open The Studio Boulder on Jan. 1 - a 12,000-square-foot space that will have artist workshops and offices for rent.

The Studio Boulder will be at 3550 Frontier Ave., Unit A2, in Boulder.

Founders Lewin and Bill Goodrich, operating as The Studio LLC, are renovating the space for about $250,000. It includes conference rooms, a communal meeting area, kitchen, multimedia rooms, bathrooms, showers and outdoor decks.

"The idea is to create community and a really rich environment for people to work in," Lewin said. "It's a great benefit to me to be a part of a space like this, and tenant rent is focused to pay back initial investment and support the space."

Rent is $300 for a dedicated co-working desk in a common area, Goodrich said.

Private offices have monthly rents ranging from $920 to $1,140. Two private workshop spaces with 24-foot-high ceilings rent for $2,290 each, a third with lower ceilings rents for $1,350 per month. An administrative assistant will handle mail and other general needs.

Lewin's studio takes up about one-third of the space, she said. Lewin invested in remodeling the total space, which is leased for an undisclosed amount.

Construction is expected to be complete in mid-December. Tours are available by signing up at thestudioboulder.com.
