Studio Share Available

June 24, 2016

I am looking to split a large 620 square ft studio on the 2nd floor in the old Beacon High School. It faces East and has huge windows for lots of natural light. I will be building out the space with fresh new walls creating two private spaces. Available starting July 1. Everything in the photos will all be gone in the next week by the current tenant. Asking $475 for 300 sq ft., although I am open to negotiate amount of space and price.
