While it's more on the work end of the live/work spectrum, this cavernous 5,683-square-foot unit in King Plow Arts Center has potential to be nearly anything you can imagine. Currently used as a media production space (appropriately called Big Studio), it is chocked with features that creative media-types love: roll-in street level access for equipment, large factory windows for perfect lighting, 19- to 25-foot ceilings to allow for all manner of inventive flailing about and camera work. When the work day is through, there's a small kitchen, two bathrooms and a private patio. Shove a bed anywhere in the enormous brick and concrete space and bam, you've got yourself a work/live situation. The King Plow adaptive reuse project is home to more than 65 tenants who do any and every type of creative work you can imagine. Some of the buildings from the old plow factory date back to the 1890s. This particular airy blank slate is located in the same building as Terminal West — yet another selling point for buyers who are also music lovers. It asks $1,250,000 but also has a steep monthly HOA fee of $1,729, so if you want it, you'd better be an artist of the non-starving variety.
