The Artist Building at 300 Summer Street is a vibrant live-work artist community comprised of 48 live-work spaces and a dozen art-related businesses, as well as The FPAC Gallery, housing the organization’s main office. Price increases are capped to ensure that the units will be affordable for artists in perpetuity. The productivity and activity of the artists at 300 Summer Street and at the two other Fort Point artist buildings, 249 A Street Cooperative and Midway Studios, are major assets to Boston’s cultural life. FPAC was the non-profit sponsor of the project in partnership with Keen Development.

The nine-story, 100,000-square-foot building is located in the historic Fort Point neighborhood. Designed by the key architect of the neighborhood, Morton D. Safford, in the Classical Revival style for wool merchant, Jeremiah Williams & Co., the 1898 building was renovated in 1995 by architect Lajos Heder. The entrance area features an art-in-architecture artwork – a recycled steel canopy by Mags Harries.
