The Leah Arts Art District zoning offers local artists with live / work space affordable spaces and promotes art and culture within the City of Hialeah.
This new arts district was unveiled on May 17, 2015 by #HIALEAHNOW; an event that marked the introduction to this new area in Hialeah which now allows artist live/work spaces in addition to its existing uses. This area, to be known as the Leah Arts District, has long been familiar to South Florida creatives. It will now serve as a viable option for artists looking for an affordable, safe, and centrally located area to have their galleries and workshops. The Leah Arts District also allows them the option of setting up living quarters.
Hialeah Councilman Paul B. Hernandez sponsored the ordinance that established the Artist Live/Work Overlay District. A resolution, adopted in December of 2013, establishes the boundaries for the Leah Arts District as East 9th street and East 17th St as its southern and northern boundaries and East 10th avenue and the railroad tracks as its eastern and western boundaries. The ordinance gained the unanimous consent of the City Council and was ratified by the Mayor. Since that time, Councilman Hernandez has been promoting the area as a viable creative corridor and introducing it as a place for artists to call home.
“This area enjoyed a great moment decades ago as the cornerstone of the garment industry. The unveiling of the Leah Arts District places this area on the cusp of its next great moment, embodying the future of progress for the City of Hialeah.” said Councilman Paul B. Hernandez.
