The five townhomes in the Rosemary district will house 20 artists.
Florida Studio Theatre broke ground Wednesday on the Kretzmer Artist Housing Project in Rosemary District. Located on Cohen Way, the project will include five new townhouses to house 20 visiting artists and theater professionals participating in the theater's educational internship program.
The project is named after Ernie Kretzmer, who contributed the lead donation for the project in memory of his late wife Alisa.
