Vision for Stuart arts district coming into focus: galleries, studios and tiny homes downtown
Lina Ruiz

Treasure Coast Newspapers

Published 6:55 p.m. ET Sept. 9, 2021

"...A local think tank has stepped forward with ideas for stimulating business, entertainment and housing in the downtown district, also known as "The Creek." 

 

901Hub, which provides private office space for local businesses on Southeast Johnson Avenue in the downtown district, recently purchased 1.4 acres on Southeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, near Bruner Pond, from the city to build 300-square-foot tiny townhomes and create venues for food, art and music, said Anthony Olivieri, 901Hub CEO.

Olivieri also plans to build a boardwalk around the perimeter of Bruner Pond to create “a pedestrian link” connecting East Florida Street to MLK Jr. Boulevard and South Colorado Avenue, he said. It would include an “edible forest” where people could “walk past and pick whatever type of fruit or vegetable they want.” 

Olivieri has been working with business owners within the district to promote events and walkability similar to the riverfront and historic downtown area, he said. He hopes the proposed townhomes near Bruner Pond, for example, would attract younger residents who would shop at businesses in the district.

“It’s an economical option to live in the downtown core,” Olivieri said of the townhomes that would be for sale rather than for rent. “Our goal is to try to keep the young focused inside the complex because they’re the ones who live and breathe the arts and entertainment.”
