City Council approves grant for new design studio project


A new city design studio will double the size of its design and production space through a $1.67 million Neighborhood Opportunity Fund grant approved by the City Council.

Bridgewater Studios and South Oakley Ventures will use the grant to rehabilitate a 50,000-sq.-ft. building at 4834 S. Oakley Ave. for offices and fabrication space. The approximately $2.85 million project will include timber truss repairs, asbestos removal, tuck pointing, window replacement, HVAC upgrades, landscaping, and fence repair.

The company plans to add up to 20 new, permanent jobs at the location, in addition to maintaining an approximately 50-person facility at 1719 W. 35th St.
