TUCSON HISTORIC WAREHOUSE ARTS DISTRICT

MASTER PLAN FOR THE CITY OF TUCSON

The Tucson Historic Warehouse Arts District Master Plan grew out of sixteen years of incremental transformation of the railroad warehouse district into a thriving production arts district. In the late 1980’s the Arizona Department of Transportation acquired many warehouse properties in the district planning to demolish them to make way for the last mile of the Barraza Aviation Parkway. As the parkway planning stalled ADOT made the properties available to artists at very low lease rates and an active grass roots arts community flowered.

The City of Tucson, slated to inherit the ADOT warehouses, sought a plan to manage the properties and make needed improvements while artists sought a plan that would protect their interests in the face of rapid change. The Tucson warehouse Arts District Master Plan was an effort to mediate between these needs and concerns while mapping a new and expansive vision for the district. The plan reached consensus on major policy recommendations that have since been enacted, laying the groundwork for the continued success of the district. First, the last mile of the Barraza-Aviation Parkway has been re-imagined as Downtown Links (Downtownlinks.info). Secondly, the Warehouse Arts Management Organization (wamotucson.org) was formed as an artist led non-profit management organization to preserve, protect, promote, and program the district. Third, the National Endowment for the Arts has funded a visibility campaign to call attention to arts and creative industries within the district (warehousedistrict.com).
