Art Ark Apartments are located in San Jose's version of SoHo - an old industrial neighborhood where artists are living/working in old warehouses, and families have rehabilitated older Victorian homes. The Art Ark is made up of 148 affordable rental artist units (134 SRO Units and 14 single family units) in two distinct neighborhoods: the Factory and the Cottages. A performance plaza joins these two districts. Over 30% of the residents consider themselves to be artists.
The Factory building was designed to reflect the warehouse context adjacent to the site. The Cottages building references the single family bungalows located on South Sixth Street. Gabled roof forms, private balconies, and porches linked to walk-up stoops, mimic the homes across the street from the development.
The community offers a spacious on-site art gallery, and an in-house artist-in-residence who teaches art classes and coordinates gallery shows. Art Ark contains a large community room, with a kitchen and an art gallery. There is a sundeck that is open to an outdoor ampitheater, abutting the neighborhood park.
