Plan for the redevelopment of the 3rd District police station in Silver Spring Credit: Artspace

The nonprofit organization selected to redevelop the former 3rd District police station in Silver Spring into artist studios and affordable housing will hold an info session next week to discuss the project with artists and residents who could be potential tenants.

Artspace, the Minneapolis-based group Montgomery County picked in 2015 to develop the site, will hold the meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. June 22 at the Silver Spring Civic Building.

Artspace plans 30 artist studios, 1,500 square feet of retail, 68 apartment units and 11 townhomes on the site, home to the station that was built in 1962 and replaced with a new one in 2014 in White Oak.

The organization will apply for a federal low-income housing tax credit in September, according to its website, and if the credit is awarded, construction is set to begin in May 2017 with completion of the $22.5 million project in September 2018.

All 68 apartment units would be income-restricted affordable housing, and split between 19 studio units, 27 one-bedroom units, 14 two-bedroom units and eight three-bedroom units.
