Sawyer Yards Expands, Adding 48K SF Of Creative Workspace
Sawyer Yards opened Sabine Street Studios, a 48K SF warehouse, the eighth facility for the burgeoning creative campus in Houston’s Historic First Ward neighborhood. Situated at the intersection of Silver and Spring streets, Sabine Street Studios joins the other renovated industrial buildings that together provide workspaces for over 400 locals, making Sawyer Yards one of the largest creative communities in the nation.
“We’re excited about the way Sawyer Yards continues to evolve as an arts and entertainment destination in Houston’s urban center,” said Deal Co. owner Jon Deal, one of the principal developers of Sawyer Yards.
After purchasing the warehouse in 2016, Deal spent the past two years designing, permitting and repurposing the former Halliburton manufacturing plant for creative workspaces. The building has 67 studio spaces available for lease to local artists.
The public will get their first look at Sabine Street Studios on Saturday, during the Sawyer Yards Spring Biannual Art Stroll, one of two major campuswide events, where patrons can view and shop hundreds of pieces of art from Sawyer Yards artists. On the second Saturday of every month, Sawyer Yards hosts open studios for visitors to explore and meet artists throughout the campus.
