Founded in 1999, The B Complex is one of Atlanta's most eclectic and enduring artist-conceived cooperative ownership communities. Located in the Capitol View neighborhood along the historic Murphy Avenue corridor, the property claims over 2-acres of one of the city's last urban frontiers. Just a 5-minute drive from the heart of downtown Atlanta, The B Complex is walking distance from both the Oakland City rail station (Murphy Ave. entrance) and the Atlanta Beltline's Westside Trail.
Built during a period from the early 1900s through the early 1940s, the expansive brick, steel and concrete warehouses comprise over 40,000sf of "industrial strength" creative workspace. Situated on a heavily-wooded site, a number of studios are nestled within a soaring tree canopy and dense bamboo forest.
At the heart of The B Complex is an expansive, light-filled exhibition & event space. Housed in the circa-1919 Lanham Cotton Cultivator Company factory, the gallery features a 5,000 gallon, bridged Koi pond entryway and 140ft long glass clerestory with 25ft ceilings. The creation of The B Complex cooperative facilitates the founding members' vision to establish a stable and suppportive creative environment, owned and directed by artists. Sheltered from profit-driven development, The B Complex proposes a legacy of truly affordable work and exhibition space for the Atlanta arts community.
