CHARLOTTE, NC. — To live in one of Charlotte’s trendiest, most sought after neighborhoods, it will cost you. The average rent for a studio at Hub South End, Three30Five Apartments and The Collective Apartments in NoDa are all about $1,300 a month. The properties are owned by Ram Realty.
“So the rents are set today based on a larger economy and economic system. So the rents are set today based on a larger economy and economic system. Unfortunately, that means some artists are priced out of living in communities,” says Rachel Russell Krenz.
Krenz is the director of real estate development at Ram Realty. She says they always incorporate local art in their properties.
“We want to continue that investment into art in our community.”
Now the developer is bringing an artist to live in one of the properties. They get to live six months for free or 50% off rent for the year. In exchange for sharing their craft with the apartment community. Kyle Mosher is the artist-in-residence at Three30Five.
“I think a lot of artists see something like this and think me, me, me. That’s the worst thing you can do. You should go above and beyond for the residency and what you’re staying at to provide an experience for the people that live here,” says Mosher
The developer even pays for the materials.
