This space is very bright with diffused natural light during daylight hours and is well-equipped for photography and video (BYO camera and laptop) with plenty of space to move around for models or dancers.

With the closing of the Art Factory in Paterson, NJ, we once again see development squeezing the habitat of our artists and creatives. The R. Neumann and Co. leather factory in Hoboken, where Project Studios is located, is under new ownership, and this time the city of Hoboken City Council has voted on a development plan that includes explicit requirements to maintain the creative studios and shop space in the existing buildings on the property. Project Studios has been working closely with building ownership to provide a vision of what art, music, and gallery spaces can look like in a future renovation of Neumann Leathers.
Neumann Leathers will continue to be a core creative zone for the foreseeable future in Hoboken. Contact us with any questions about studio availability. We have many projects in the works that can accommodate artists and musicians displaced by the Art Factory closing.
Recently, with PROTO Gallery’s MEGALODON pop-up group exhibition, a new 6000 sq. ft. space has been added to the roster of active creative spaces in at R. Neumann. A series of exhibitions and events are currently being scheduled for 2016, beginning with a group show of Neumann Leathers tenants. Stay tuned to PROTO Gallery and Project Studios social media for details and announcements.
We have new studio availability for the new year! We have cut down one of our large spaces to create three semi-private spaces on the 5th floor of R. Neumann and Co. on Newark Street. We also have one available space on the 4th floor of 300 Observer Highway, and we have opened up our mini printmaking shop as well.
4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) $525.00
5th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 17 ft. (irregular) (suite: 25 ft. x 45 ft. 1125 sq. ft.) $600.00
5th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 30 ft. (irregular) (suite: 25 ft. x 45 ft. 600 sq. ft.) $900.00
The Project Studios Spring Expansion is underway. We will be offering the following studios starting June 1, 2013. Contact us immediately if you are interested in any of the following options. All of these studios are either on the 3rd or 4th floors of Neumann Leathers in Hoboken. We give them silly code names to keep track of them.
4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 4th Floor Share: 10 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.)

The prices are based not only on square footage alone. Windows, electrical power, type of door, or other factors influence the price. A freight elevator and passenger elevator are located in very close proximity to these studios. They are located on the 4th floor of Neumann Leathers in Hoboken, NJ. The location in the building is considered by us to be premium as it is right in the heart of the art and music section of the building, and has the convenience of the passenger elevator. All studios have locking steel doors and are private. All utilities are included. The spaces named shop have significant electrical service in place including 22o v for tools and equipment. The shop spaces are also appropriate for music.

We have built two new beautiful studios on the Willow Avenue side of Neumann Leathers. These studios were made available for October 1, 2012, and are no longer available. Enjoy the studios!
Studio #1: 505 sq. ft., double door: Studio #2: 350 sq. ft. Single door:
