2212-24 S Jefferson has been renovated incrementally over the years. Building by building, studio by studio, the Canyon Run Complex (named for its former long-time occupant) has been transformed to meet the needs of artists and small businesses alike. Construction culminated in 2020 with the completion of the 2222 building, which is now home to ten individual studios anchored by a storefront.
The art-filled space offers studios ranging in size from 150 to 1,200 square feet, with features like exposed brick, concrete floors, and oversized windows that speak to the building’s history, juxtaposed with modern amenities such as key card & mobile phone access, internet, and new restroom facilities. The building has a new roof with insulation as of 2018, and the parking lot was re-surfaced in 2017. Most studios are accompanied by a dedicated off-street parking space, and abundant street parking is available on Jefferson.
