Art of Business: Lofts at Beacon 

Not Run of the Mill

Turning a former textile mill beside Fishkill Creek into state-of-the-art live/work artists' studios and climate-controlled storage dovetails nicely with Beacon's arts-driven renaissance. So do the hometown women running the show. "I've been here since day one, and this is a labor of love for me," says Beacon native and property manager Nicole Corneyea, the first to suggest that gallery space be incorporated into the residence. "Our fiber arts show fits perfectly with the property's history in textiles, and Open Studios is great for the residents. But my favorite is the Beacon High School show. The kids come in, hang their work, and feel like they're in a real gallery. Their teachers and families come. It's so good for them." New residences open up in May. Loftsatbeacon.com
