Abstract

Peter Skapinsky of Dirigo Management conducted an unannounced search of artists' studios in the Winslow Building on May 14, and cited the presence of beds and mattresses along with unsafe storage of flammables. Skapinsky told the tenants that they would have to sleep elsewhere or face eviction. The Winslow Building, at 547A Congress Street in Portland, does not meet city code requirements for living quarters. Alex Jaegerman, Portland's chief planner, said code restrictions such as those at the Winslow Building are slowing the growth of affordable live-and-work space in the downtown area.
