The City of Richmond is still offering four bachelor units left out of a total 17 in the new Sorrento Artist Studio Program.

The Sorrento Artist Studio building

The City of Richmond is still offering four bachelor units left out of a total 17 in the new Sorrento Artist Studio Program.

The initiative is part of the city’s affordable housing strategy, offering brand-new, street-level live-work spaces to professional artists who demonstrate financial need. The Sorrento is located near the new Canada Line Capstan Station, between Garden City Road and No. 3 Road, also close to the airport.

The monthly rent is $1,012.85 and the annual household income limit is $41,500.

You can download the application here.

Among the stipulations, the artist  must have an “independent body of work”, have maintained a professional practice for at least three years, and have a history of public presentation.

The units were announced earlier this year, and are owned and managed by the developer, Pinnacle Living, via the program secured by the City of Richmond.

Studio sizes are about 875 square feet, with free shared building amenities that one doesn’t often associate with an artist live-work space—namely a swimming pool, hot tub, a spa-inspired fitness room with sauna and steam room.

A similar project is also underway in the nearby Concord Gardens building, which has 20 units leased to artists using the same program just over a year ago.
